“Special edition: SDGs in Action”

A shared responsibility

We live in an era where the attitudes of companies to social and environmental issues, from global warming to marine plastic pollution and human rights issues, are being strongly tested. Initiatives for environmental and social sustainability as well as contribution to SDGs are now expected of all companies.
In this edition we discuss SDG initiatives that are already delivering real benefits as well as the global activities of Mitsubishi Electric and its new Sustainability Division. We hope that these stories and reports give you some insights and hints on some novel ways to realize sustainable manufacturing. There is no doubt that now is the time to act.
