Hitachi Construction Machinery Group is aiming to resolve environmental issues and achieve both a higher quality of life and a sustainable society through its Social Innovation Business in collaborative creation with its stakeholders.
To realize “Decarbonized Society”, “Resource Efficient Society” and “Harmonized Society with Nature”, Hitachi Construction Machinery Group has established “Action Guidelines for Environmental Conservation” as a basic policy for environmental activities, and is promoting initiatives based on these.
For a Decarbonized Society
-Climate Change Mitigation/Adaptation-
We work to reduce emissions at the “use” stage, which accounts for more than 90% of greenhouse gas emissions throughout the product life cycle, along with reductions at our own “production” stage.
For a Resource Efficient Society -Saving and Recycling Resources-
Our business operations will respond to help build a society that uses water and other resources efficiently.
For a Harmonized Society with Nature -Preservation of Ecosystems-
At each stage of the value chain, we will evaluate the impact on the ecosystem and promote measures to minimize the burden.
Environmental Value Creation Initiatives
Hitachi Construction Machinery Group is applying an environmental management system and working toward improving its environmental performance across all group companies.
We disclose environmental performance data such as greenhouse gas emissions (Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3) and the verification of the effects of environmental activities to our stakeholders. We also endeavor to increase the reliability of information related to the environment by actively implementing third-party reviews.
Performance related to addressing climate change, such as energy consumption and GHG emission reductions
Performance related to resource recycling such as raw materials, waste, and water
Prevention of Pollution
Prevention and reduction initiatives of hazardous substances emitted from both products and production
In order to improve the accuracy and reliability of environmental information, we undergo the third-party review
The Environmental Burden Accompanying Business Operations
Input (materials, energy associated with business operations and etc.) and output (CO2 emissions, etc.)
Hitachi Construction Machinery Group conducts business activities globally with the environment in mind.
Reducing CO2 emissions
To combat climate change, we are working on reductions across the entire product life.
We are striving to preserve ecosystems with the aim of achieving a Harmonized Society with Nature.
Environmental Contribution by Products
Aiming at “Product and technology development contributing to climate change mitigation and adaptaion” as one of our materialities, Hitachi Construction Machinery Group is engaged in the development and design of products that contribute to the environment as an initiative to reduce environmental impact in the two areas of “Manufacturing of Construction Machinery” and “Using of Construction Machinery”.
In the “Manufacturing of Construction Machinery,” we are promoting “environmentally conscious products” developed and designed with consideration for the environment such as energy saving and low carbon, and in the “Using of Construction Machinery,” we are providing “products contributing to the environment” enabling customers to use products while contributing to the environment.
