Basic policy and approach to environmental management

Group Environmental Policy

Based on its corporate mission, "The Mitsubishi Electric Group will continually improve its technologies and services by applying creativity to all aspects of its business. By doing so, we enhance the quality of life in our society," the Mitsubishi Electric Group is committed to realizing an affluent society that achieves both sustainability and safe, secure, and comfortable lifestyles. In particular, finding solutions to environmental problems such as climate change, resource depletion, and the loss of biodiversity is positioned as one of the most important issues that the Group must address as it strives to create new value and contribute to the realization of a sustainable future.

Utilizing our accumulated and newly developed state-of-the-art technologies, we will draw on strengths of a wide variety of businesses, both within and outside of the Group, to provide products and services that contribute to resolving climate change issues and creating a recycling-based society. At the same time, we will strive to create innovations and propose new values that support future generations. We are also working to minimize the impact of our business activities on the global environment and to preserve biodiversity by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting the recycling of resources.

As a good corporate citizen, we will work with our employees, their families, and local communities to foster environmental awareness and expand the sphere of our activities that contribute to society. We will actively disseminate information on our environmental initiatives in the effort to promote a mutual understanding with society. Based on the recognition that laws represent the minimum social norms, we will not only comply with laws, but also develop a keen sensitivity to changes in society, and always conduct business activities giving appropriate consideration for the environment.

Under the Environmental Declaration, "Protect the air, land, and water with our hearts and technologies to sustain a better future for all," all employees of the Mitsubishi Electric Group will contribute with pride and passion to enrich lives and improve the global environment.
