Every year members of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd.'s (MHI) Group companies undertake cleaning activities in their local areas, known as "Furusato Cleanup" events, in line with the Company's CSR (corporate social responsibility) Action Guidelines for "caring for the planet" and "creating a more harmonious society." In the Kobe District, for the past 14 years activities of this kind have been conducted twice a year, in June and October, as a regular undertaking of the Kobe Shipyard & Machinery Works.
The participants offered a variety of comments on their experience that day. "When the local residents thanked me while I was cleaning, I truly felt that what we do is of service to society." "Performing cleaning activities in the local area was a refreshing and invigorating experience." "I was able to help preserve the area's environment, which made me feel a close rapport with the local community."
Through activities of this kind, we will continue to strive to create and maintain a beautiful environment, always communicating closely with the people living in our local areas.
