Third-party review of the environmental information

Hitachi Construction Machinery undergoes a third‒party review to ensure the reliability of its environmental information. We are proceeding with verifications as following areas.

1. Calculation method for reducing the volume of CO2 emissions by incorporation the benefits, such as energy efficiency through the introduction of new product models and from electrification.
(Verified by Bureau Veritas Japan Co., Ltd.)
2. Environmental performance (CO2, energy, water, waste, VOC)
(Verified by SGS Japan)
3. DfE assessment
(Verified by Bureau Veritas Japan Co., Ltd.)

We are using the same calculation method for CO2 emissions volume reduction in 2013 as we did in 2012, when the calculation method for the overall Hitachi Group underwent a third‒party review. Environmental performance and DfE assessment went through a third‒party verification in 2013. Energy and CO2 emissions were reviewed to assess our environmental performance. We plan to extend this third‒party review to our overall environmental performance in the future. The DfE assessment encompassed as review of the ZX50U‒5A, a mini hydraulic excavator, manufactured by Hitachi Construction Machinery Tierra Co., Ltd. Going forward, we plan to have a third party assess all models.
