MDP donates $1 million to flood relief

Mitsubishi Development has been deeply saddened by the widespread floods in Queensland and New South Wales. People have lost their lives, and homes and businesses are severely damaged. Our thoughts are with everyone affected.  To help support those impacted, Mitsubishi Development has donated $1 million to disaster relief and recovery efforts.

Mitsubishi Development is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corporation, and our 50:50 JV with BHP, BMA, located in Queensland’s Bowen Basin, is the largest exporter of seaborne steelmaking coal in the world.

This $1m donation will go towards the five charities under the Premier of Queensland appeal, with $200,000 each to the Australian Red Cross, Lifeline Queensland through UnitingCare, the Salvation Army, St Vincent de Paul Society Queensland, and GIVIT, to respond to the needs of communities.

As we move into the recovery phase, this donation will help provide critical services for Queenslanders by meeting the immediate material needs and long-term recovery support to re-establish their homes, rebuild lives, and provide mental health support services.

Corporate responsibility to society is one of the core values of Mitsubishi Development. We actively strive to support initiatives that directly contribute to our communities and the health and safety of all. As a result, Mitsubishi Development is privileged to help those impacted by the floods.

From the CEO of Mitsubishi Development, Sadahiko Haneji:

The level of impact that these floods have caused in our local communities has been truly devastating. For more than 50 years, local communities in Queensland have given so much to Mitsubishi Development. We hope that our contribution will help speed up the flood recovery process to get these local communities back on their feet as soon as possible. Mitsubishi Development will continuously generate economic, societal, and environmental value.”
