MHI Report 2015
MHI Report 2015 is the second integrated report following last year, and was prepared in accordance with the International Integrated Reporting Framework released by the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC). The report focuses on the company's efforts to create corporate value, and consists of four parts. The first is an overview of the company entitled, "Cover Story: MHI's Course," followed by "Strategies for Augmenting Corporate Value," "Creating Value through Our Businesses" and "Building a Framework for Value Creation."

The Cover Story section introduces more than 130 year history of the company and describes its mission as an increasingly globalized comprehensive infrastructure company, as well as its various management reform initiatives. In the section, President Shunichi Miyanaga outlines the corporate aspirations defined by the newly launched 2015 Medium-Term Business Plan, a three year plan started this fiscal year, and describes MHI as "a global group with the vision to mold an innovative and agile organization that leverages our dedication to technological advancement and engineering excellence in order to deliver solid growth amid constant changes and make a lasting difference in the communities we serve."

In the section titled "Strategies for Augmenting Corporate Value," President Miyanaga presents further details of the three initiatives in the Medium-Term Business Plan, which he describes in his President's Message as: "Enhance global competitiveness through accelerated expansion," "Further bolster financial strength and pursue high profitability" and "Promote global-standard corporate governance and management processes." In the "CFO's Message" section, cash flow-oriented financial and capital policies are presented.

The section also includes comments from three outside directors - Nobuo Kuroyanagi, Senior Advisor, The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd.; Christina Ahmadjian, Professor of Hitotsubashi University Graduate School of Commerce and Management; and Shinichiro Ito, Chairman of the Board, ANA Holdings Inc. - who were appointed to serve on a new Audit and Supervisory Committee that was established following MHI's adoption of an audit and supervisory committee structure earlier this year. They talked about MHI's directives toward corporate governance and globalization.

The "Creating Value through Our Businesses" section introduces the Company's efforts to create a new business model that goes beyond the scope of conventional manufacturing. As an example, it focuses on the Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ), a next-generation regional jet that is on track to make its first test flight very soon. In the section on "Building a Framework for Value Creation," the report describes efforts to enhance corporate governance through the introduction of an audit and supervisory committee structure, as well as human resources development, intellectual property and R&D activities.
