Towards a sustainable energy future.
By 2050, electricity will be the backbone of our entire energy system, and as the pioneering technology leader, we are committed to collaborating with customers, partners and other key stakeholders to enable a sustainable energy future for our generation and those to come.
100% Fossil-free electricity in its own operations
Hitachi Energy has reached its first-step target to use 100% fossil-free electricity in its own operations in 2022, stepping up the pace in achieving its Sustainability 2030 target of becoming carbon-neutral. By using 100% fossil-free electricity in its own operations, Hitachi Energy reduced its CO2e equivalent emissions by over 50% compared to 2019. The targeted 50% reduction achieved ahead of plan will amount to approx. 175 kilo tonnes CO2e per year, equivalent to removing over 35,000 passenger cars off the road.
Reducing our resources through circularity
Our ambition reaches beyond carbon-neutrality. We are working to reduce waste – along with our consumption of precious resources, including materials and freshwater. We will support ‘Clean Water and Sanitation’ (SDG 6) and ‘Responsible Consumption and Production’ (SDG 12) through circularity.
We will minimize the adverse impacts on human health and the environment from our portfolio through reduction of hazardous substances and pollution throughout the life cycle of our offerings.
In 2021, we launched EconiQ™ – our eco-efficient portfolio. EconiQ™ is Hitachi Energy’s eco-efficient portfolio for sustainability where products, services and solutions are proven to deliver exceptional environmental performance.
