Mitsubishi Electric in Hong Kong

Sustainability

Sustainability is an integral part of everything we do.

At Mitsubishi Electric, we value Sustainability as one of our core corporate philosophies.

As a socially responsible corporation, Mitsubishi Electric (Hong Kong) initiates and supports a wide range of 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

Donation of Electric Fans for the elderly in need

We donated 100 sets of electric fan to C & MA Bradbury King Lam Elderly Centre in July 2021 for their distribution to the underprivileged elderly. We hope the beneficiaries can enjoy a comfortable living environment in the summer and receive warmth of love from the community.

Collaboration Projects with Yan Oi Tong - Care to those Elderly in Need

Due to the social distancing measures under the pandemic, the elderly may feel isolated and lonely. To show our love and support to them, we joined hands with Yan Oi Tong to distribute food gift packs to them in Jan 2021, and our volunteers celebrated the lunar new year with them via ZOOM in Feb 2021.

Food Grace - Food Gift Pack Distribution

To show our love and support to the underprivileged families during the pandemic situation, we have joined hands with Food Grace to distribute food gift packs to 200 families in Jan – Feb 2021.

Mitsubishi Electric - Caring Company

In 2015 - 20, 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.

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

"Connecting Children with Nature" Program

"Connecting Children with Nature" is a program aiming to support local innovative green technology and educate children about renewable energy and a sustainable environment. In this program, we sponsored further development and application of the Direct Thermal Charging Cell ("DTCC"), newly invented by Dr. Shien-Ping Feng and his research team from the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Hong Kong. In addition, we invited some primary students to participate in the "Animal Circuit Drawing Workshop" to learn about how waste heat can turn into usable electricity and provide them the opportunity to experience a biodiversity environment in a novel and interesting way. We hope it can inspire children to learn about the importance of environmental protection.
