Social Contribution Activities

In line with the "Hitachi Group Identity" and "Hitachi's CSR Management Framework," the Hitachi Group promotes social contribution activities based on the policy on social contribution activities shared by the entire Group.

We believe that these initiatives enable us to contribute to the development of sustainability in both our business and society as a whole.
