Achieving Hitachi’s Environmental Vision Through the Social Innovation Business

As global warming, resource depletion, ecosystem destruction, and other environmental issues grow more serious, the international community is working together to tackle these problems, such as by adopting the Paris Agreement that includes a target to keep global warming to below 2°C. From an environmental-management perspective, Hitachi, which promotes the Social Innovation Business, has established the Environmental Vision and defined the kind of society we envision in the long term in contributing to the resolution of global environmental issues.
