Great East Japan Earthquake Relief

Together with extending our heartfelt sympathies to all those who suffered in the Great East Japan Earthquake Disaster of March 11, 2011, we are praying that the disaster locations will be reconstructed as quickly as is humanly possible.
Hitachi Group is engaged in aid activities with the aim of reconstructing the disaster-affected regions. In order to provide relief to all of those who were affected by the disaster and help with reconstruction of the disaster locations, Hitachi Group Companies have together provided support worth about 1 billion yen, including donations of flat-panel TVs, dry-sell batteries and Disaster Victim Support Systems for municipalities, to aid victims of the disaster and to assist with recovery. We have also opened up company housing in the Tokyo area to disaster victims. We will continue to extend rapid support to help those in disaster areas.

Examples of activities:

  • 'Buy and Help Society! Bazaar' for disaster recovery in Tohoku
  • "Buy and Help Society! Bazaar" for disaster recovery in Tohoku
    These events have been held by Hitachi Group Companies continuously since fiscal 2012 with the theme of disaster recovery in Tohoku. We have invited the organizations active in the recovery efforts in Tohoku region following the earthquake and tsunami of 2011, to sell their products or put up displays their activities. We plan to continue to provide this sort of support in the future.
