Risks and Opportunities Presented by Physical Factors
Extreme weather that is a frequent occurrence in recent years is said to be one of the effects of global warming. Owing to large typhoons and the flooding of rivers, production activities at plants, and transportation of parts and products, etc. have been affected throughout the supply chain. It is thought that the impact of such abnormal weather will become a risk for business continuity.
Meanwhile, countries and regions are beginning to promote adaptation of measures to circumvent and mitigate damage caused by the impact of climate change. The disaster prevention and reduction technologies, products, and solutions that Hitachi Construction Machinery Group has been working on can contribute to adaptation, and we believe this will be a new business opportunity for Our Group.
