6th Environmental Plan
In April 2009, we launched our 6th Environmental Plan (FY2010–2012, years ending March 31). The 6th Environmental Plan focuses on the achievement of Environmental Vision 2021, established in October 2007 to coincide with the 100th anniversary of our founding. Considering the achievements of the 5th Environmental Plan, as well as challenges and changes in the social climate, the 6th Environmental Plan was formulated based on the following perspectives:
- Setting targets and action plans for environmental performance to realize Environmental Vision 2021
- Responding to social changes and imperatives surrounding environmental issues
- Contributing to the creation of a sustainable society through the expansion of environment-related business
Targets for the prevention of global warming will not be based on per unit reductions but on the total amount of reductions, setting a higher target for the creation of a recycling-based society.
To fulfill its responsibility as a corporate group with global operations, Mitsubishi Electric will raise the level of its environmental management and contribute to society through the expanded activities of its environment-related businesses.
Environmental Vision 2021
Announced in October 2007, Environmental Vision 2021 is the long-term environmental management vision of the Mitsubishi Electric Group.
It establishes a framework for realizing a sustainable planet, and defines long-term initiatives to prevent global warming and to create a recycling-based society.
The motto "making positive contributions to the earth and its people through technology and action", calls for the company to work toward the realization of a sustainable society by utilizing our wide-ranging and sophisticated technologies as well as by promoting assertive and persistent actions by our employees. The Vision sets 2021 as the target year, commemorating the 100th anniversary of Mitsubishi Electric's founding.
Environmental Vision 2021 stands at the core of Mitsubishi Electric's commitment to the environment, and outlines targets that we aspire toward and that we measure ourselves against.
