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

Food Recycling Experiential Tour

We participated in the "Food Recycling Experiential Tour" organized by Food Grace in Oct 2022. Staff members had the opportunity to understand more about the current food waste problem in Hong Kong. They assisted in repacking the recycled food and then distributed it to people in need within the community.

Green Experiential Day with Children in Lamma Island

We participated in the Green Experiential Day with Children in Lamma Island, organized by the Hans Andersen Club (HAC) in Aug 2022. Our staff members split up and joined different groups of children to have storytelling time and engage in green activities together to learn more about the current environmental issues we face. Everyone enjoyed a happy and fruitful day together.

Coastline Recovery Tour

To raise awareness of the Marine litter problem, we participated in the Coastline Recovery Program organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) in Nov 2021 to have a shoreline clean-up volunteer activity. Through this activity, we hope to encourage our employees and their family members to change their behaviours and nurture positive values and attitudes towards our coastal environment.

Mitsubishi Electric - Caring Company

In 2015 - 22, 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.

Donation of Electric Appliances

We donate our home appliances and air conditioning products in support of charity organizations for their social services enhancement and facilities upgrade, namely donation of electric fans to Pok Oi Hospital to support their meaningful Kong Ha Wai Village Transitional Housing Project benefiting families in need.

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.

Walk for Nature 2022 "Endless Possibility @ Mai Po"

More than 20 staff and their family members enjoyed a peaceful yet fruitful day together at Mai Po Nature Reserve in Nov 2022.

Everyone was refreshed after having a walk in nature though it was scorching hot.
