MHI Wins Place in Dow Jones Sustainability Asia Pacific Index

- Selection Reflects Strong ESG Performance -

TOKYO, Sep, 12 2017 - (JCN Newswire) - Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) has been selected for inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability Asia Pacific Index, one of the world's leading investment indices for ESG(1) performance. The Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI), developed by S&P Dow Jones and RobecoSAM, select companies based on various economic, environmental and social criteria to assess overall long-term sustainability.

MHI Group has consistently worked to resolve global challenges through its products and technologies, supporting industrial and social infrastructure. Its businesses span a wide range of regions and stakeholders and the Company is committed to pursuing sustainability, as reflected by its inclusion in the index.

"We are delighted to have been included in the DJSI Asia Pacific Index," said Masanori Koguchi, CFO and head of sustainability affairs for MHI. "Sustainability is a core focus of our business and this selection will encourage us to drive further positive change. Through our technology, our businesses and our people, we are addressing challenges like climate change and growing infrastructure demand. We will continue to pursue a more sustainable future going forward."

In addition to the DJSI, MHI has been included in two other prominent indices for sustainability investors. One is the FTSE Blossom Japan Index: a new index, established by the London Stock Exchange Group, which lists Japanese firms that excel in ESG performance. The other is MSCI Japan's Empowering Women Index (WIN), which identifies Japanese companies that are empowering women in the workforce and addressing diversity issues. Both of these indices have been adopted by Japan's Government Pension Investment Fund (GPIF) - the world's largest pension fund.

By protecting the global environment, building ties of trust with society, and supporting development for future generations, MHI will contribute to the realization of a sustainable society going forward.
