CSR – Singapore
Promoting the understanding of air conditioning and refrigeration
Mitsubishi Electric Asia Pte Ltd (MEAP) welcomes industrial visits by students who want to come and understand the live operations of a service center. Such events help the students to learn more about the actual working environment they will be in after completing their studies.
MEAP also provides workshops to secondary school students, technical trainings, and seminars to the general public on air conditioning and refrigeration.
Supporting the development of future engineers
In order to enhance training and development in the field of air conditioning and refrigeration, Mitsubishi Electric Asia Pte Ltd (MEAP) signed a memorandum-of-understanding with the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) in November 2011.
Since then, MEAP has been providing field service experience and on-site exposure to the air conditioning and refrigeration industries to ITE students on a regular basis.
Furthermore, an annual cultural visit was made to the factories for the ITE students to understand what the factories are like and their operations. Such trips further enhance the understanding of the students on how products are being produced and assembled before they are even available for sale. Additionally, students have the opportunity to experience hands-on practical work with MEAP employees for 2 weeks.
Social Events with the Elderly of APEX Day Rehabilitation Centre
Since 2006, Mitsubishi Electric Asia Pte. Ltd. (MEAP) has been collaborating with APEX Day Rehabilitation Centre for the Elderly to bring joy and laughter to the patients of the center. Through the years, our staff has shown their enthusiasm for volunteering and has actively been participating in the philanthropic activities organized by our Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR) Committee.
River Safari Outing with the Elderly of APEX Centre
After their visit to S.E.A. Aquarium earlier in the year, the patients of APEX Centre were once again delighted when they met the internationally renowned giant pandas, “Jiajia” and “Kaikai”, at the Giant Panda Forest of River Safari on August 14, 2013. In total, there were 26 patients and 45 volunteers involved in this event. Some volunteers were assigned to take care of the patients, while others helped out in the distribution of snacks during tea break.
The Managing Director of MEAP, Mr. Minoru Hagiwara—who joined this CSR event with MEAP for the first time—was very honored and excited to participate in such a meaningful event. At the end of the event, the volunteers felt a sense of fulfilment when they saw the smile on every patient’s face.
Chinese New Year Celebration with the Elderly of APEX Centre
As part of a yearly tradition, Mitsubishi Electric Asia held a Chinese New Year celebration with APEX Day Rehabilitation Centre for the Elderly. The party was held on the center's premises. MEAP employees played games with the center's patients, had lunch with them, and sang Chinese New Year songs. One employee also played two songs for the patients with his trumpet. Before the event ended, MEAP's CSR Chairman, Mr. Frederick Goh, dressed up as the God of Wealth and distributed gold coins to the patients, many of whom were delighted and took pictures with him.
