Hitachi Construction Machinery (HCM) Group participated in Earth Hour, an environmental campaign hosted by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). The goal is to prevent climate change.
HCM Group turned off the lights including outdoor signage and indoor lights at 6 companies and 9 offices and factories in Japan, China, Russia, the United Arab Emirates and Canada from 8:30pm to 9:30pm on March 28th. The lights-off period was also extended at many bases resulting in about 7,600kWh reduction in electric power consumption.
HCM Group will continue environmental prevention activities to contribute to the development of a low-carbon society.
