|Tanegashima Loggerhead Turtle Survey
||MHI Group offered its support for the Tanegashima Loggerhead Turtle Survey, an event sponsored by the authorized NPO EarthWatch Japan. Tanegashima is a key location for our rocket launch business, and the launch market is expected to expand as demand for satellite use grows around the world. In this activity, employee volunteers participate in local surveys. Although Tanegashima, which is home to an important MHI Group business site, is a spawning ground for the loggerhead turtle, few individual identification surveys have been conducted to date. We anticipate that conducting such surveys in Tanegashima beach areas will help to clarify the ecology of the loggerhead turtles and contribute to the preservation of the species as it faces extinction.

|Forest Conservation Programs (forest preservation activities)

|Environmental Action Furusato Cleanup
||Each year throughout Japan, we conduct the Furusato Cleanup events as a cleanup activity in regions where we are active on a daily basis. For our cleanup activity in Shiga Prefecture, we conduct activities aimed at eliminating invasive fish species in Lake Biwa. Such cleanup activities are aimed at enhancing awareness among individual Group employees and family members of environmental preservation and local conservation. In fiscal 2017, 144 of these activities were conducted, and 6,000 people have participated.
