        Realising a carbon-neutral world

        through sustainable methods

        Information from Mitsubishi Power Africa

        As global warming and climate change become more widely recognised as issues faced by the whole of
        humankind, society is entering a period of great change. In order to achieve the goal of decarbonisation
