Efforts to Achieve a Decarbonized Society

In line with the scenario in the IPCC's Fifth Assessment Report to keep the increase in global temperatures below 2℃, we have established long-term reduction targets for CO2 emissions of 50% by fiscal 2030 and 80% by fiscal 2050 (compared to fiscal 2010 levels) throughout the value chain.
Approximately 90% of the value-chain emissions of our products and services—from the procurement of raw materials and parts to production, transportation, use, disposal, and recycling—result from the use of our products and services after they were sold. For this reason, to reduce emissions across the value chain and achieve our long-term targets, it is crucial that we reduce CO2 emissions not just during production but also during the stage of use.

Expanding the Decarbonization Business

Hitachi is utilizing Lumada to expand its decarbonization business. Through collaborative creation, we will help the world mitigate and adapt to climate change by supplying solutions in the five business areas of IT, energy, industry, mobility, and smart life—the growth areas identified in the 2021 Mid-term Management Plan.

CO2 Emission Reductions at Business Sites (Factories and Offices) and Hitachi Carbon Neutrality 2030

Hitachi is working toward achieving its target of reducing CO2 emissions from our business sites (factories and offices) by 50% compared to fiscal 2010 by fiscal 2030, as set out in Hitachi Environmental Innovation 2050, our long-term environmental targets.
To accelerate these efforts, in 2020 we announced an additional goal of realizing carbon neutrality by fiscal 2030 at all business sites (factories and offices). We call this goal “Hitachi Carbon Neutrality 2030.”
Under Hitachi Carbon Neutrality 2030, we aim to be carbon neutral by effectively reducing emissions by 100% by fiscal 2030 compared to fiscal 2010, instead of the original 50% reduction target.
