Hitachi Energy Commitment to Planet

Towards Carbon-Neutral

We accelerate the energy transition through innovative technologies towards a carbon-neutral future. Through Sustainability 2030, we aim to achieve carbon-neutrality in our own operations by 2030. In addition, we target to reduce our emissions along the value chain by 50% with customers, partners, and suppliers, supporting SDG 7 ‘Affordable and Clean Energy’ and aligned with the Paris agreement to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees.​
