While Mit­subishi Elec­tric Asia is a house­hold name in Sin­ga­pore, with a long­stand­ing rep­u­ta­tion for pro­vid­ing qual­ity tech­nol­ogy prod­ucts, what is lesser known is that be­hind its man­u­fac­tur­ing pro­cesses, it is a com­pany that is also work­ing to build a greener fu­ture for the world, thanks to its Eco Changes pol­icy.

Eco Changes is a mis­sion that started with Mit­subishi Elec­tric Asia’s par­ent com­pany, Mit­subishi Elec­tric Cor­po­ra­tion, to pro­mote re­spect for bio­di­ver­sity and the en­vi­ron­ment, as well as sus­tain­abil­ity ef­forts such as re­cy­cling. It has two over­ar­ch­ing goals: to sell prod­ucts and ser­vices that con­trib­ute to the en­vi­ron­ment and to so­ci­ety, and to hone its ef­fi­cient man­u­fac­tur­ing tech­niques that their over­all en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact is min­imised.

An ex­am­ple of an ef­fi­cient prod­uct with such ben­e­fits is Mit­subishi Elec­tric’s lat­est Starmex FN Wall Mounted air-con­di­tion­ing se­ries. Those units boast a Dual Bar­rier coat­ing on the in­ner sur­face to pre­vent dust and dirt from ad­her­ing to the air-con­di­tioner, while a mi­cropar­ti­cle fi lter fences out up to 99 per cent of harm­ful PM2.5 par­ti­cles. An Easy Clean fea­ture im­proves op­er­at­ing ef­fi­ciency and en­ergy sav­ings by up to 45 per cent. De­servedly, Mit­subishi Elec­tric has earned the hon­our of hav­ing the widest range of air-con­di­tion­ers in Sin­ga­pore with the full 5 Ticks Ex­cel­lent En­ergy Ef­fi­ciency rat­ing from the Na­tional En­vi­ron­ment Agency.

Be­sides pro­duc­ing en­ergy-ef­fi­cient goods, Mit­subishi Elec­tric also en­cour­ages its em­ploy­ees to par­tic­i­pate in cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity ini­tia­tives. Its global ef­forts range from an award­win­ning chil­dren’s ed­u­ca­tion pro­gramme in the UK on en­ergy con­ser­va­tion, to wide-scale tree plant­ing ex­er­cises around the world. In Sin­ga­pore, com­mu­nity-fo­cused ac­tiv­i­ties such as beach clean­ing and par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Gov­ern­ment’s en­vi­ron­men­tal ini­tia­tives take place reg­u­larly.

Through ac­tion and ed­u­ca­tion, Mit­subishi Elec­tric con­tin­ues its ef­forts to change the global en­vi­ron­ment for the bet­ter.
