Hitachi High-Tech GLOBAL

The Environmental Action Plan is made up of implementation headings that apply in common to the Hitachi Group. The Hitachi High-Tech Group has added its own action headings to that plan and is promoting them.

The plan results for FY2020 and the plan for FY 2019-2021 are as shown below.
