Environmental Charter

The Mitsubishi Paper Mills Environmental Charter was initially established in April 1993 and revised in April 2001. Nine years have passed since then. The first commitment period under the Kyoto Protocol for the prevention of global warming commenced in 2008, and in 2010 the Tenth Meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP10) was held in Nagoya. These events reveal the growing importance being attached to global environmental issues. Against this backdrop, we once again revised our Environmental Charter to reflect changes in society's attitude to environmental issues.
