Hitachi High-Technologies GLOBAL

We fulfill our social obligations as a corporate citizen by leveraging the business characteristics of the Hitachi High-Tech Group to contribute to local areas and communities.

CSR Activities

Basic Policy

The Hitachi High-Tech Group has designated "human resource development," "environmental conservation," and "local contribution" as focus areas for its social contribution activities. We are pursuing CSV* by linking these activities with our core business and applying the resources we have cultivated in that business to the resolution of social issues. We aim to be a truly socially responsible corporation by promoting activities that take an integrated approach to creating value for society and our own sustainable corporate growth.

  • * CSV: Creating Shared Value

Supporting Science Education

The problem of losing of interest in science among children and students is an important issue to be tackled in relation to the education of the personnel who will be the driving force behind the industry of the future. Our basic principle is "value creation through high-tech solutions," and the Group, which has a business foundation of science and technology, will contribute to professional education and the development of society by conducting science education. That leverages our technology and products to the maximum extent possible, with a focus on our physical and chemical apparatus.

Global Environmental Conservation

The Hitachi High-Tech Group encourages environmental business and environmental management based on the Hitachi Group’s Environmental Vision. On the one hand, we contribute to environmental conservation through our regular business, on the other we promote activities for global environmental conservation activities, such as the conservation of ecosystems in the local area through various activities by companies, as well as employees and their families.

Local Area and Other Contributions

We work closely with our stakeholders when conducting our business activities. The local community is also an important stakeholder, hence we work hard to build good relationships with local communities.
