Implementing The Nijyu-maru Declaration in line with Aichi targets
HCM is proactively engaged in the “The Nijyu-maru Declaration” in order to help protect biodiversity.
The “The Nijyu-maru Declaration” is a program conceived by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature – Japan (IUCN-J) whereby activities designed to stop the loss of biodiversity under the “The Nijyu-maru Project” are declared (as registered activities) by program participants.
For the “The Nijyu-maru Project”, entities such as companies and local governments register declarations of what they can do in order to work towards the “Aichi Targets” which was an outcome of the 10th Parties Conference (COP10) convention on Biological Diversity.
HCM Group agrees with this approach and has registered and declared (the Hitachi Construction Machinery Eco-School Activity) to undertake 1 and 17 of the 20 Aichi targets. This action is a first for the HCM Group and a first for the construction machinery industry.
Of group companies within Japan, Tadakiko registered and declared for targets 1, 5, 7, 14, and 17, and Hitachi Construction Machinery Tierra received the same for targets 1, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10, 15, and 17. Also we declared for targets 1, 4, 5, 7, 14, 15, and 17 regarding to initiatives of Hitachi Construction Machinery (Shanghai) and Hitachi Construction Machinery (China).
This corporation will continue to consider ecosystems and promote conservation initiatives in the future.
