Hitachi’s Mission is to “contribute to society through the development of superior, original technology and products.” We seek solutions to environmental issues, which are of serious concern to society, through our business operations and promote environmental management from a long-term perspective. Meeting society’s expectations with innovations that mitigate environmental issues also presents major business opportunities. Hitachi’s Environmental Vision states that “Hitachi will resolve environmental issues and achieve both a higher quality of life and a sustainable society through its Social Innovation Business in collaborative creation with its stakeholders.” To uphold this vision and work toward achieving a decarbonized society, a resource efficient society, and a harmonized society with nature, we have established a set of long-term environmental targets looking toward 2050 and 2030 called Hitachi Environmental Innovation 2050, and have been promoting Group-wide environmental activities in line with our Environmental Action Plan, which is updated every three years. To help build a decarbonized society, we aim to achieve carbon neutrality at our business sites (factories and offices) by fiscal 2030 and throughout our value chain by fiscal 2050.
In response to the adoption of the Paris Agreement on climate change and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in 2016 we established a set of long-term environmental targets called Hitachi Environmental Innovation 2050 and have been working toward achieving them.
Important matters related to the environment are monitored by the Sustainability Promotion Meeting, discussed or decided on by the Senior Executive Committee, and presented to the Board of Directors.
