Expanding the Decarbonization Business

To help achieve a decarbonized society as set out in Hitachi’s Environmental Vision, Hitachi provides value to customers and society by pursuing a decarbonization business that contributes to the reduction of CO2 emissions, leveraging collaborative creation with our partners. Hitachi has three major sectors—Green Energy & Mobility, Digital Systems & Services, and Connective Industries—as well as the Hitachi Astemo, automotive business area. We are developing the following businesses that contribute to decarbonization:

・Businesses that help to accelerate the energy shift aimed at realizing decarbonization
・Businesses that provide safe, comfortable, and clean mobility
・Businesses that help to reduce CO2 emissions by using cutting-edge digital technologies to improve the efficiency of systems that underpin society
・Businesses that help to decarbonize industries and cities by creating a resilient supply chain
・Businesses that contribute to the electrification and autonomous driving of vehicles

We will work to expand our decarbonization business through the provision of these varied solutions, thereby helping the world to mitigate and adapt to climate change.

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

In working toward realizing a decarbonized society, Hitachi has set the goal of realizing carbon neutrality by fiscal 2030 at all business sites (factories and offices) as part of its long-term environmental targets called Hitachi Environmental Innovation 2050.
Our roadmap to achieving this goal sets targets of reducing CO2 emissions by 50%, compared to the base year, by fiscal 2024 and 80% by fiscal 2027 toward realizing carbon neutrality by fiscal 2030.
