Hitachi is active in the fields of plant, information, and operation and maintenance services for essential services (including electricity, gas, and water), transport (including rail and road), and other social infrastructure. With the aim of participating in the construction of the next generation of environmentally conscious cities in Japan and around the world (smart urban development), Hitachi established a Smart City Business Management Division in April 2010 and a Water Environment Solutions Division in June 2010 to strengthen its activities aimed at meeting the current need for innovation in social infrastructure. There is a rising level of global activity in the area of demonstrations and other urban development projects such as eco-cities and Hitachi is participating in these in ways that include product development and increasing the added-value of its products by applying advanced technology in the field. In addition to facilitating innovation in social infrastructure, Hitachi is also working on feasibility studies in conjunction with government policy objectives in which it puts an emphasis on initiatives that take account of the individual circumstances of each city or community.
