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.
Following the formulation of Environmental Vision 2021 in October 2007, we have changed how we draw up our plans. Starting from the 6th Environmental Plan (fiscal 2010-2012), we have adopted a backcasting approach, in which we identify specific goals for realization of the Vision as activity targets to be achieved during the period of each plan. Currently, we are pursuing the 9th Environmental Plan (fiscal 2019-2021).
