    MISSION NET ZERO: Carbon Neutrality Initiatives at MHI Group toward a Sustainable, Safe, Secure and Comfortable Society


    While the common goal of reducing CO2 emissions to Net Zero by around 2050 is shared by countries around the world, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) Group has declared its "MISSION NET ZERO" to reduce the group's CO2 emissions and those of its customers who use our products to virtually zero by the year 2040. We have divided the energy social system into the "supply side" and the "use side", and have defined the direction we should aim in these areas as "Energy Transition" and "Smart Infrastructure", respectively. In addition, we are working to develop technologies and businesses that will contribute to a "carbon-neutral society of the future" through technological development based on open innovation, collaboration and co-creation across industries rather than efforts made by our company alone, in addition to conventional product development.
