Aiming to Improve Everyone’s QoL (Quality of Life) andAchieve a Sustainable Society Through Digital, Green, and Innovation
We at Hitachi Global Life Solutions(hereinafter, “our company”) aim for “Happy living for one and all. A more comfortable tomorrow for people and society. With innovations that that deliver happiness to the world, we open new doors to the future” and we promote diverse environmental initiatives based on that purpose.
Hitachi Global Life Solutions Group (hereinafter, “the Group”), as a member of the Connective Industries Sector within the Hitachi Group, aims to create sustainable value through innovation by integrating the business foundations we have cultivated to date, namely products and technologies, with digital technologies.
Furthermore, a major pillar of our 2024 Medium-Term Management Plan is to transform ourselves into a recycling-oriented manufacturing company.
In the 2024 Medium-Term Management Plan, Hitachi Group declared its aspiration to “support people’s quality of life with data and technology that fosters a sustainable society.” With the aim of achieving our long-term environmental targets, we formulated a green growth strategy with two pillars: GX for GROWTH (carbon neutral for customers and society) and GX for CORE (carbon neutral within the Hitachi Group).
In concrete terms, we aim to reduce 100 million metric tons of CO₂ emissions in FY2024 and achieve carbon neutrality in the value chain in FY2050.
In line with this, our company promotes the reduction of its own CO₂ emissions as well as those of customers as part of our efforts towards decarbonization. We aim to achieve carbon neutrality at our company’s manufacturing sites by FY2030 and throughout our entire value chain by FY2050.
In addition, we are enhancing manufacturing to support a resource-efficient society.
In addition to focusing on developing products with low environmental impacts through the use of recycled material and resource conservation, we are also focusing on developing new recycling technologies that promote resource recycling, and working to improve our recycling rates of used home appliances. Furthermore, we are developing ways to enable our products to be used longer while aiming to expand recurring business.
We are working on efforts to solve various environmental issues and contribute to create a sustainable society that does not exceed the planetary boundary.
