"Having been deeply involved in MHI Group's energy transition strategy, I will focus on integrating and expanding our diverse business activities relating to the energy transition. Europe and the wider EMEA region has been a key driver behind global efforts towards achieving net-zero targets. I look forward to strengthening our collaborative partnerships with our customers and stakeholders to accelerate the achievement of a sustainable carbon-free society," commented Kentaro Hosomi.

Also effective April 1, 2021, MHI-EMEA has expanded its operational footprint with the establishment of a new branch in Duisburg, Germany and a liaison office in Brussels, Belgium. Prof. Emmanouil Kakaras, Executive Vice President NEXT Energy Business, will lead the new team that will focus on the growth of MHI's energy transition related business. At the center of activities will be the company's expertise along the hydrogen value chain and broader decarbonisation technologies, particularly in light of the recent initiatives across the region to mitigate climate change and meet net-zero targets.
