MHI Releases 2013 "CSR Report"
- Coinciding with Renovation of CSR Zone in M's Square Showroom at Shinagawa
Head Office Building -
Tokyo, June 26, 2013 - (JCN Newswire) - Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd.
(MHI) today released the 2013 Japanese-language edition of its annual "CSR
Report," also referred to as the "MHI Social and Environmental
Report." The release coincided with the completion of renovations to the
CSR Zone in M's Square, the company's showroom located on the second
floor of its Shinagawa Head Office Building in Tokyo.
The newest edition of the "CSR Report" was developed with an even
greater emphasis on easy visual comprehension, its design reflecting views and
suggestions received from a wide spectrum of stakeholders. The abridged version
introduces information of strong interest to the public concisely, making
effective use of photographs, tables, graphs, etc. A more detailed version is
available on the MHI website to enable a deeper understanding of the
company's CSR initiatives.
The 2013 "CSR Report" opens with an interview of MHI President
Shunichi Miyanaga by Mayumi Matsumoto, a visiting assistant professor at The
University of Tokyo who, after a career as a newscaster and reporter, is now
involved in environmental and energy issues as a member of a nonprofit
organization. Mr. Miyanaga speaks of MHI's commitment to leverage the
company's comprehensive capabilities in manufacturing as a way of
contributing to the realization of a sustainable society. He also presents an
overview of MHI's energy and environmental business areas, including
thermal and nuclear power generation.
In a special feature, the "CSR Report" introduces MHI's four
initiatives targeting the resolution, through manufacturing, of social issues
and MHI's response to the public's expectations of the company. Two
examples of how MHI is solving the energy problem are cited: its large-scale
offshore wind turbine generator and "MEGANINJA," a transportable
power generation system configured like a container, driven by gas engine. Also
introduced are the company's new urban transportation systems that are
safer, more comfortable and more environmentally compatible than earlier
systems, and its launch services by H-IIA and H-IIB rocket, an undertaking that
is contributing to international development and use of outer space.
Other features of this year's "CSR Report" are an introduction
by company employees to MHI's CSR activities, a discussion with company
stakeholders, and highlights of MHI's CSR activities during the past year,
presented using charts, etc. for easy understanding.
In the CSR Zone at M's Square, videos and graphic panels introducing the
company's CSR activities have been changed in line with the content of the
2013 "CSR Report." A newly added feature is "wakamaru
gift." MHI records the daily number of handshakes wakamaru has with
visitors and based on a predetermined number makes monetary donations to the
recovery support activities of the Tohoku region.
The 2013 "CSR Report" is the company's tenth to date, and the
13th when the earlier "Environmental Report" is included. It is
distributed to shareholders, the media, governmental agencies, universities and
business corporations, as well as to members of the public who request a copy.
It is also available on the MHI corporate website
