With around 100 years of history since we started making elevators in the 1920s, we at Hitachi and Hitachi Building Systems have long been committed to globally supplying safe, secure and comfortable elevators and escalators as well as services that help resolve customers’ various issues in urban spaces to contribute to a sustainable society.
The United Nations adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015, and related efforts towards solving the problems of society have started around the world. Following our corporate philosophy, which states that “We will contribute to a sustainable society through providing new value for people, building systems, and society,” we are taking ongoing action primarily on Goals “7. Affordable and Clean Energy,” “8. Decent Work and Economic Growth” and “11. Sustainable Cities and Communities,” out of the 17 goals in the SDGs.
For example, in Japan, we have been providing remote monitoring services for elevators, escalators, and various other building equipment for 30 years, and we analyze the equipment operation data to detect signs of approaching failures and repair them before they happen.
We at Hitachi have been enhancing our products and services by utilizing our “Lumada” platform in our advanced digital solutions, services, and technologies as we continue to develop our business globally.
We will go on creating new social and environmental value in the societies in which people live, to contribute to the creation of a sustainable society.
