Environmental Vision 2021 is the long-term environmental management vision of the Mitsubishi Electric Group. With the guideline of making positive contributions to the Earth and its people through technology and action, the Company is working toward the realisation of a sustainable society utilising wide-ranging and sophisticated technologies as well as the promotion of proactive and ongoing actions by our employees. The Vision sets 2021 as its target year, coinciding with the 100th anniversary of Mitsubishi Electric's founding.
Contributing to the creation of a low-carbon society through the provision of a wide variety of energy-saving products.
Raising the efficiency and performance of air conditioning, lighting and other utility equipment, as well as improving production lines to reduce the amount of CO2 emitted during production and contributing to the creation of a low-carbon society.
* Mitsubishi Electric envisaged a fiscal 2021 total CO2 emissions target of 830,000 tonnes based on a CO2 emissions intensity of 0.33 kg-CO2/kWh at the time when its Environmental Vision 2021 was formulated. Taking into consideration changing electric power circumstances in Japan, total emissions were converted using an intensity of 0.42 at the time the 7th Environmental Plan was put in place. Under the framework of the 7th Environmental Plan, this also brings the target to 980,000 tonnes in the final fiscal year (2020).
We will help reduce CO2 emissions from power generation and contribute to the creation of a low-carbon society by supplying the power industry with products and systems that do not emit CO2, including photovoltaic power and nuclear power systems.
Creating products that contribute to the 3Rs (reduce, reuse and recycle) throughout the product lifecycle.
Restricting the generation of waste and promoting the efficient reuse and resource reconversion of waste.
We provide education for children and leadership training for 1,000 people in the promotion of nature observation and conservation.
Forest cultivation activities aid in the creation of a low-carbon society, protect against natural disasters and contribute to the preservation of biodiversity.
"Satoyama" Woodland Preservation Project involves local residents, employees, families, and nearly one million people from all over the world join forces to engage in this nature conservation activity.
