Reason for Publishing and Positioning of This Report (ESG DATA BOOK)

Keeping its principles and Group Statement as its base, MHI Group aims to continue its development alongside the changing world by responding to the present and future issues and needs of society with a variety of technologies and services.

This ESG Report (ESG DATA BOOK) functions as a supplementary document to the MHI Report and summarizes information pertaining to environmental, social, and governance (ESG), meant to introduce detailed performance data of our ESG efforts to all of our stakeholders, who possess a vested interest in this information.
