As a good corporate citizen, we initiate and support a wide range of CSR activities related to charity, environment and education schemes to meet the needs of our community and help make a difference to it.
We aim to share our love and provide support for the less privileged by giving generously to different charity organizations and actively taking part in a host of volunteer service programs throughout the territory.
We also engage with different organizations to carry out community-based initiatives in a bid to promoting environmental conservation and developing the young generation through activities that support the promotion of science & technology, culture and arts, and sports.
In October 2018, we partnered with Christian Family Service Centre to provide a free photographing service where the elderly couples could experience the wedding moment again by dressing up as “Bride & Bridegroom” and expressed their love to each other.
To share delightful festive moment with the elderly, we co-organized the event with Yan Oi Tong in September 2018 with activities of lantern DIY, lunch, games, lucky draws and gift distribution. Both the elderly and our volunteers had a good time in the afternoon.
We supported the Tea Party for Elderly launched by Yan Oi Tong to celebrate Mother’s Day and Father’s Day in June 2018. Our volunteer team played games and chatted with the elderly. All of the participants had a good time that day.
The visit to the privately-owned residential care home for elderly was organized by Christian & Missionary Alliance Social Service. We visited the elderly in May 2018 for the purpose of keeping them connected with the society through a range of activities like playing games, doing exercise and chatting with them.
We joined hands with Hans Andersen Club and organized a storytelling workshop for children in Apr 2018. All participants took part in a role play and made handicrafts together which could definitely stimulate the kids’ creativity!
We joined the charity walk organized by Orbis Hong Kong in March 2018 for helping the needlessly blind kids to walk into the light.
In 2015/18, Mitsubishi Electric (Hong Kong) Limited was awarded the “Caring Company Logo” by the Hong Kong Council of Social Service in recognition of our continuous support and contributions to the community. We continue our endeavor to be a good corporate citizen.
To care for the elderly, we donated over 100 electric fans and refrigerators to Christian Family Service Centre and Yan Oi Tong in July 2018 for their distribution to the underprivileged.
We hope the beneficiaries can enjoy comfortable living environment in the summer and feel the warmth from the community.
We took part in different fundraising events, namely MSF Day organized by Medecins Sans Frontieres, Orbis World Sight Day organized by Orbis, etc. to support their meaningful charity campaigns. To encourage our staff’s participation, we launched the "Matching-Donation Scheme“ (i.e, every HK$1 that our staff member donates, we will donate HK$1) to engage more staff to support and render their care to the community.
We have joined hands with the New Life Farm, run by the New Life Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association, to launch the “Share the Sunshine” Programme since 2017.
In this programme, we not only donated solar energy systems to the Farm but also sponsored eco tours organized by the Farm monthly to let children learn renewable energy through green talk, experience the joy of planting and harvesting as well as deliver love and care to the underprivileged by sharing the harvests.
We sponsored the “Green x Engineering x Energy” Summer Camp for secondary students which was hosted by The Chinese University of Hong Kong - Centre for Innovation & Technology in July for three consecutive years.
This year, nearly 30 students from different secondary schools joined the camp with a series of activities such as workshops, talks, visits, competitions, etc. They visited our showroom and showed great interest in our wide range of products. After the showroom tour, they interacted with our colleagues in the Q&A section about green technology application in different areas.
This summer camp not only aroused students’ interests and explored their potentials to be an engineer, but also equipped them with basic knowledge of green engineering technology. It’s expected that the young generation can contribute to sustainable society in future with their professional knowledge.
To support the promotion of STEM education (i.e. Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and green innovation to our next generation, we sponsored this 2-year Government funded project which is co-organized by The Chinese University of Hong Kong - Centre for Innovation & Technology and Hong Kong Technology Education Association. The project will launch a series of activities in 2018 - 2020 such as training workshop, site visit, competition and exhibition to nurture STEM talents in Hong Kong with problem-solving skills and offer opportunities to them to share their fruitful achievement with the public at the exhibition.
Hong Kong Tech Challenge 2018
Over 70 teams of students from primary and secondary schools joined the competition which was held in Hong Kong Science Park in January 2019. The competition could not only raise the students’ interest in STEM, but also let them understand the importance of team cooperation and spirit. Moreover, the winning team of secondary school category may represent Hong Kong to compete in the VEX Robotics World Championship which will be held in the US in April 2019.
Visit to Our Showroom
Nearly 25 students from different secondary schools visited our showroom and interacted with our colleagues to learn more about green technology application in different areas in December 2018. We hope the visit could arouse students' interests and inspire them to think about innovative ideas for their preparation and participation of “Green Innovation Competition 2019” which is also a part of the project.
A total of 5000 participants visited the InnoCarnival which was held in The Hong Kong Science Park in November 2018. There were game booths and exhibition for the partner schools to show their robots with the theme of “6-Art”. It was a good opportunity for students to share their exhibits and interact with the public in the exhibition.
Open Classes (Robot Workshop)
200 primary and secondary students joined the Open Classes in September 2018 to acquire basic knowledge of VEX robot formation, programming and control. All participants are also invited to join the STEM Carnival to demonstrate their achievements in December.
For details and registrations of upcoming robot classes, carnival and other activities of this program, please visit https://www.6artsplus.com/
75 participants learned C Language of Arduino programming and analyzed data collected by sensors in June and July 2018. This technology can be applied in network building of IoT (Internet of Things) and smart home forming by utilizing the techniques to home appliances.
DIY Windmill Workshop
Nearly 90 students from both primary and secondary school participated the workshops in March 2018. Instructors taught students ways to make windmills which can collect wind power more efficiently and generate more electricity. Most participants enjoyed it and learnt knowledge and skills through “DIY”.
The project started with a briefing section which was held in March 2018. To encourage more schools to join, the project details were introduced to nearly 90 teachers from 66 primary and secondary schools. The response was overwhelming with nearly 100 schools applied for joining and exceeded the target.
Students from Mechanical Engineering of Hong Kong Polytechnic University visited our office in March 2018. Our colleagues briefed them how green technologies are applied in air conditioning & ventilation, energy systems and railway systems. Besides, students took a tour around our showroom and we also explained and demonstrated our diverse cutting-edge products to them.
We offered scholarships to different educational institutes to provide financial support to students
The Mitsubishi Electric Group regards "ethics and compliance" as the foundation of corporate management.
