Japan's Hitachi to go carbon neutral by 2050

Hitachi Ltd. plans to fully eliminate greenhouse gases from its supply chain by 2050, the Japanese industrial group announced in a statement on Monday.

Hitachi previously aimed to reduce direct emissions from its factories and offices to zero by 2030. Its updated climate goal includes its extensive supplier web, aiming to reduce all emissions by 80% compared to 2010 levels. In 2019, Hitachi's supply chain emitted 110 million tons of carbon dioxide, with 96% of the gas coming from players outside the group's operations.

"Green technology in a digital world is a real engine for growth, and it's an exciting time to help cities, governments and companies cut carbon whilst accelerating our own potential as a climate change innovator," said Alistair Dormer, Chief Environmental Officer at Hitachi.
