Innovation 2050

Our Environmental Vision and Hitachi Environmental Innovation 2050

In response to the adoption of the Paris Agreement on climate change and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in 2016 we established our Environmental Vision and a set of long-term environmental targets, Hitachi Environmental Innovation 2050, and have been working toward achieving them.

According to our Environmental Vision, Hitachi will resolve environmental issues and achieve both a higher quality of life and a sustainable society through its Social Innovation Business in collaboration with its stakeholders. As a global leader, we will aim to globally build a low-carbon, a resource-efficient, and a harmonized society with nature.

The Hitachi Environmental Innovation 2050 is a set of long-term environmental targets looking toward 2030 and 2050 and we have been promoting Group-wide environmental activities in line with our Environmental Action Plan, which is updated every three years.
