Environment – Coordinated Regional Waste Recycling (Kyushu Region)
Seven Different Factories Working Together to Promote Environmental Contribution and Cost Reductions
Since 2008, in the Mitsubishi Electric Group's Kyushu area (comprised of Nagasaki, Fukuoka and Kumamoto Prefectures), several factories have been working together across prefectural and regional boundaries to promote coordinated waste recycling activities. Such regional partnerships among Mitsubishi Electric Group companies originally began in the Kansai area.
