Mitsubishi Electric Named to CDP's Water "A List"

Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO:6503) announced today that its business strategies and activities to protect water resources have been given a top "A List" rating by the nongovernmental organization CDP for the fourth consecutive year.

Mitsubishi Electric Initiatives to Protect Water Resources

Mitsubishi Electric's environmental initiatives are a reflection of the company's Environmental Vision 2021 policy, which emphasizes creating a low-carbon, recycling-based society and respecting biodiversity. Furthermore, on June 13, 2019, the company announced that it would "protect the air, land, and water with our hearts and technologies to sustain a better future for all" in its Environmental Sustainability Vision 2050*. This new policy is designed to reduce environmental impact in terms of global value chains, energy-saving products and systems, and infrastructure, ultimately to realize a sustainable future.
