We also provide high energy saving and reduce carbon emission thanks to the technology invented by Mitsubishi Electric, which is only available in the elevators of our brand, deciding on the speed of the elevator according to current load."

Technologies that prevent water waste and increase reuseability

Stating that Mitsubishi Electric uses the water risk assessment tool WRI Aqueduct, which was developed by World Resources Institute, mainly prioritizing global production fields which needs water risk precautions the most, Saraçoğlu said that water usage was reduced by 40 thousand cubic meters as a result. Stating that the brand contributes to improving cumulative water recycling rates thanks to precautions such as using treated waste water in cooling systems, Saraçoğlu ended his words saying, "Mitsubishi Electric successfully receives its place in A list, the highest ranking by CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project) due to its works aimed towards fighting climate change and protecting water resources."

CO2 emission is expected to be reduced by 30 percent

Stating that Mitsubishi Electric, shaping all its activities in accordance with its goal to become a "global and leading environmentalist" company, strives to increase eco-awareness of both its own employees and that of people in accordance with its global environment mission "Eco Changes", Saraçoğlu continued his words; "Mitsubishi Electric has set important targets for its 100. anniversary in 2021. In this context; Mitsubishi Electric aims to help create a society based on low carbon and recycling, operate in harmony with nature and to strengthen the environment management activities of the group. As Mitsubishi Electric, in parallel with our 2021 goals, we are planning to reduce CO2 emission caused by product use by 30% compared to 2001 fiscal year values and to reduce CO2 emission caused by manufacturing by 30% compared to 1991 fiscal year. At this point, our 2018 Environment Report shows that we are on the right track."

Carbon emission caused by products and manufacturing has been lowered

Making statement according to the Environment Report regarding Mitsubishi Electric's 2018 Japanese fiscal year (1 April 2017 - 31 March 2018) Saraçoğlu Said; "Within the reported year, as a result of a series of operations such as renewing Mitsubishi Electric production facilities and improving operational processes, total yearly greenhouse gas emission values were reduced down to 1,27 million ton, below the target value of 1,37 million ton. As a result of using coolers and gas collection methods with low global warming potential in companies outside Japan, non-CO2 emissions were reduced down to 190 thousand tons in a CO2 equivalent basis, even below the target value stated as 220 thousand tons. By renewing facilities and adopting the technology of Internet of Things (IoT) and thus increasing efficiency in production, CO2 caused by energy usage was reduced by 24 thousand tons. By reducing CO2 emissions caused by 102 Mitsubishi Electric eco-products, mainly being information technologies products and electronic devices, by 35%, target goal was reached."
