Environmental Activity Evaluation System

Evaluation of Environmental Conservation Activities through GREEN21-2018

The HCM Group quantitatively evaluates its environmental activities, and has adopted the ‘GREEN21’ rating indicator shared across the Hitachi Group for continuous improvement and raising the level of activities.
Evaluations using the new “GREEN21-2018” index are being performed with the goal of ascertaining the degree of achievement under the Environmental Action Plan in the three years from FY 2016, and improving the management level. Under GREEN21-2018, environmental conservation initiatives are evaluated using “Green Points” (GP) on the basis of the six criteria in the table below.

HCM Group achieved a result of 512 GP for FY 2018, surpassing the target of 480. The evaluation for each category is shown in the table below.We achieved targets of each category except “Collaboration with stakeholders”. Green points of “Ecosystem Conservation” espacially increased. We are aiming at an overall improvement in low-scoring categories by – following factorial analysis – particularly strengthening management.
