As the world confronts climate change, our collective response has the potential to forge a new, net-zero economy. Collaborative creation — with the public and private sectors working toward shared goals — is key to bring that potential to fruition.
Ambitious government initiatives such as President Biden’s American Jobs Plan create a public policy framework for making the massive infrastructure investments necessary to address climate change. But businesses must deliver the innovations necessary to close the significant gaps in key carbon-intensive sectors. Without a commitment to both sides of the equation, compelling climate-mitigation pilot projects cannot deploy at scale. Translating these ambitious climate targets into action in the United States will require collaboration between government and industry. By co-creating with leaders in the private and public sectors, Hitachi is bridging these gaps with novel climate change solutions that digitalize infrastructure, harness the power of data and create synergies across sectors.
