Tokyo, Dec. 6, 2021 --- Hitachi, Ltd. ("Hitachi") today announced that Hitachi has received the Silver Award at the WICI Japan Integrated Reporting Award 2021. The Silver Award which Hitachi received, is presented to a company whose Integrated Report with sufficient financial and non-financial data is evaluated as excellent. This is our third award, following the Integrated Reporting Award in 2019 and the Gold Award in 2020.

The WICI Japan Integrated Reporting Award was established by WICI Japan, the Japan chapter of the World Intellectual Capital/Assets Initiative("WICI"), in 2013 as a way to promote the use of integrated reporting in Japan. WICI Japan annually reviews integrated reports issued by listed companies of the Tokyo Stock Exchange and this year marked the ninth time the award since it was started.

In the Hitachi Integrated Report 2021, which was produced and issued for the sixth time, we have placed a particular emphasis on communicating, in an easy-to-understand way, Hitachi's activities targeting co-creation and the creation of value through digital transformation (DX) in social infrastructure, which is Hitachi's core area of business. Furthermore, it summarizes the themes that should be prioritized for the realization of a sustainable society amid increasingly complex and diverse social issues, such as COVID-19, climate change, aging populations, and natural disasters, as new "Strategic Focus Area", and systematically explains strategies and measures.
We will make continuous improvements to the Hitachi Integrated Report so that it will assist readers in gaining a deeper understanding of Hitachi's value creation story and provide opportunities for the co-creation of new value with all stakeholders.
