Providing Environmentally Conscious Products and Services
About Environmentally Conscious Products and Services
The Hitachi High-Tech Group introduced eco-design (environmentally conscious design) starting in FY2016. Our aim is to realize a decarbonized society, and we have been working on Reduction of CO2 Emissions During Product Usage, which makes up a relatively large proportion of CO2 emissions in the supply chain (Scope 3). Under this initiative, we are adopting design and development processes based on the international standard IEC 62430*. This contributes to enhanced competitiveness and added value for products by helping to reduce their environmental impact. Permeating development processes with this approach is expected to heighten awareness of the environment among engineers and other people concerned.
The Hitachi High-Tech Group has a wide range of environment-friendly devices and equipment and offers a variety of solutions. By providing these kinds of business and services that contribute to the environment, we are committed first of all to providing our customers with solutions for their issues as well as to continuing our contribution to the realization of a decarbonized society based on the reduction of CO2 emissions, the realization of a recycling-oriented society based on the effective use of water and other resources, and the realization of a society in harmony with nature by curbing the discharge of chemical substances.
