Environment – Evolution of the Environmental Plan (1st through 8th)
Approximately every three years since fiscal 1994, the Mitsubishi Electric Group has formulated an environmental plan with specific targets. During this period, we have progressively stepped up our environmental activities based on the degree to which the targets of each plan (1st through 5th) were achieved.
In line with Environmental Vision 2021, which was formulated in October 2007, we changed the manner in which plans are implemented, starting from the 6th Environmental Plan (fiscal 2010-2012). In specific terms, we have adopted a backcasting approach, which identifies activity targets over the period of each plan taking into consideration matters that need to be achieved in realizing the Vision. Currently, we are promoting the 8th Environmental Plan (fiscal 2016-2018).
