As corporations are also increasingly becoming required to take concrete measures to prevent global warming, Hitachi, Ltd. has set a goal of carbon neutrality toward making its plants and offices carbon net-zero by FY2030. Within the Hitachi Group, Hitachi High-Tech Group was the fastest company to have four offices achieve carbon neutrality.
Full-scale efforts began in FY2018 and culminated in the four locations of Hitachi High-Tech Kyushu, Hitachi High-Tech Fine Systems, Hitachi High-Tech Science Fuji Oyama Works, and Naka-Marine Site achieving carbon neutrality by March 2021. How did they do it? To find out, an interview was carried out with a Hitachi High-Tech Group employee.
