Preventing Pollution and Using Resources Efficiently

Waste Reduction and Recycling Initiatives in Buildings

The Mitsubishi Estate Group calls on the cooperation of tenants in the buildings they manage and administer when it comes to waste separation. Some buildings recycle raw garbage into animal feed and fertilizer, one of many efforts being undertaken to raise the recycling rate. Furthermore, no leakages of toxic substances that could severely affect the environment occurred in fiscal 2017.
