Conserving Biodiversity at Business Sites

Based on the results of environmental assessments at the Takasago plant of Mitsubishi Power, Ltd., the Company has established flowerbeds to preserve salvia plebeia, a rare plant. In addition, the Company is working to exterminate invasive alien plants, such as the Madagascar ragwort, that have been placed on the blacklist of warning species by the Ministry of the Environment and Hyogo prefecture. Furthermore, as a business with locations in the same prefecture as Lake Biwa, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Machine Tool Co., Ltd, with headquarters in Ritto City, Shiga Prefecture, participates yearly in efforts to remove invasive fish in an event sponsored by the Biwako-Wo-Modosukai (Team to Bring Back Lake Biwa). Through these efforts, the Company is cooperating in the environmental conservation and ecological conservation of Lake Biwa.
