Environmental Vision 2021

Climate protection is a major issue worldwide and will have a significant impact on our future. The goals for the reduction of climatically harmful greenhouse gas CO2 are laid down in the Kyoto Protocol. Mitsubishi Electric has had a tradition of reducing CO2 emissions with advanced technology and highly energy-efficient products, and is extending this commitment into the future through its environmental initiative. 

The "Environmental Vision 2021" is Mitsubishi Electric's long-range vision for environmental management, which looks towards the year 2021 as the 100th anniversary of the company's founding by which to achieve specific and meaningful results. Based on the principle of ”Making Positive Contributions to the Earth and its People through Technology and Action“ the Vision defines a set of initiatives for realising a sustainable, recycling-based global society through application of the company’s broad range of high-level technologies and the actions of its global workforce of talented individuals.

The "Environmental Vision 2021" commits Mitsubishi Electric to deliver the following by 2021: 

  • Reduction of CO2 emissions
  • Sustain resource cycle by Reducing, Reusing and Recycling (3Rs)
  • Run educational and leadership training for employees and for children to nurture environmental awareness

The Semiconductor European Business Group of Mitsubishi Electric is working to realise these goals by producing electronic devices that are more energy efficient, while also working to reduce the amount of lead and other controlled substances being used. As shown in the chart below power losses have been already decreased step by step with the introduction of new generations of Power Modules.


Every day, the Mitsubishi Electric Group as a whole makes a positive contribution to realise its "Environmental Vision 2021" through its products, activities and technologies.
