Towards a sustainable energy future. ​

We are advancing the world’s energy system to be more sustainable, flexible and secure.

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.

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.​

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.

Our Targets

50% reduction of waste disposed

2013 baseline

25% reduction of freshwater use

2013 baseline

Our Target

25% reduction of hazardous substances & chemicals​

2013 baseline

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.
