TOKYO -- The CEO of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries said on Friday he aims for a turnaround in his company's share price with a push toward hydrogen energy.

"Reducing carbon gas emissions into the atmosphere and achieving carbon neutrality is a common human challenge," said CEO Seiji Izumisawa in an interview with the media.
