Corporate InformationCSR (Corporate Social Responsibility)

Hitachi is pressing forward with activities in accordance with its Action Guidelines for Environmental Conservation in order to achieve its Environmental Vision and the Hitachi Environmental Innovation 2050 long-term environmental targets. Toward this end, the Environmental Action Plan is drawn up every three years. The Environmental Action Plan for 2018—formulated in fiscal 2016—stipulates detailed activities and targets to tackle by fiscal 2018.

Environmental Action Plan for 2018: Results and Targets

For our performance under the Environmental Action Plan for 2018, marking fiscal 2016 as its first year, we missed a target in one of the item areas, but for every other category, we were able to reach our goals. We will continue to make improvements in each activity aimed for fiscal 2018—our final year—and achieve our targets.

The indicators used in the Environmental Action Plan for 2018 are the main ones in Hitachi's environmental activities overall, and our endeavors in these areas are introduced in the following pages.
