Mitsubishi Electric in Hong Kong

Corporate Social Responsibility

Good corporate citizenship is an integral part of everything we do.

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.

Charity & Community Service

“Fill Up My Life” Day Camp

To cultivate students’ (P.4 – P.6) positive values and attitudes, we joined hands with St. James’ Settlement to organize a Day Camp for them in June 2019. The Day Camp included a series of workshops and trainings for students to apply what they have learnt.

Donation of Home Appliances for the elderly in need

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.

Matching-Donation Scheme

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.

Environment

"Share the Sunshine" Programme
– Eco Tour

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.

School Talk

Over 100 students joined the “ECO” talk in June 2019. The talk introduced the current situation of energy consumption and renewable energy in Hong Kong, and let students understand more about the relationship between innovative technology and energy saving. It aimed to raise their eco awareness and inspired them to make behavioral change to start a green living.

Educational Workshop

Over 60 students from four secondary schools have participated in “Design Thinking” workshops since March 2019. During the workshop, they learnt the concept of Design Thinking, how to apply it to brainstorm ideas for different energy-saving solutions in school and develop prototype under guidance of instructor.

Education

“Robotics, STEM and Green Innovation” Project 2018 - 2020

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.

Green Innovation 2019

Over 300 students from more than 80 primary and secondary schools joined the competition which was held in Hong Kong Science Park in July 2019. Students were required to observe the environmental issue that they encountered in school, then applied their creativity and STEM knowledge to come up with creative green solutions under the topic of “Green Classroom”, and finally presented their ideas and prototypes. It was a great opportunity for students to practise what they learnt, broaden their horizons and enhance their eco awareness.

Infrared Control Kruino Car Workshop & Smart Car Park Workshop

Both workshops were held in The Chinese University of Hong Kong in February and March 2019. Students got an opportunity to understand more about circuit and power saving through assembling the Infrared Control Kruino Car. In addition, students used Arduino boards and different types of sensor to build a smart carpark slot which could also strengthen the students’ ability to collect and analyze data.

Hong Kong Tech Challenge 2018

CMA Secondary School garnered the Excellence Award of both Junior Secondary and Senior Secondary Categories

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.
