To Provide New Value for “Humans, Buildings, and Society” and Contribute to a Sustainable Society

To Provide New Value for “Humans, Buildings, and Society” and Contribute to a Sustainable Society

Vice President and Executive Officer, CEO of Building Systems Business Unit, Hitachi Ltd. 
Chairman of Hitachi Elevator (China) Co., Ltd. 

Since we started to produce elevators in the 1920s, we have accumulated more than 90 years of history in the building systems business. We remain committed to providing safe, secure and comfortable elevators and escalators as well as services that help resolve customers’ various issues in urban spaces globally.

At present, the world is facing the emergence of new social issues reflecting various changes, including urbanization, the aging of society, and climate change. Amid these changes, initiatives to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations in 2015 have begun to be taken all over the world. Following our corporate philosophy which states, “We will contribute to a sustainable society through providing new value for people, building systems, and society,” we are taking ongoing actions primarily on the following of the 17 SDGs:

7. Affordable and Clean Energy;

8. Decent Work and Economic Growth, and;

11. Sustainable Cities and Communities.

For example, in Japan, we have been providing remote monitoring services for elevators, escalators, and various other building equipment for 30 years. We analyze the equipment operation data to detect signs of approaching failures and repair them before they happen. Our strength is that we have cutting-edge  technologies within the Hitachi Group. Moving forward, we will leverage this strength to pursue advanced products and services and the global expansion of our businesses.

We will continue creating new social, environmental, and economic value in a society where people live to contribute to the realization of a sustainable society.

Promote Social Development with Collaborative Innovation

Hitachi Elevator (China) Co., Ltd.  CEO

Upholding the philosophy established in the China Business Strategy 20181 of “contributing to society through excellent patent technology and product development”, Hitachi defined two social and innovative pillars: to bolster product manufacturing and to enlarge the company footprint in China. Therefore, the growth goal includes not only the revenue target of RMB10 billion, but also to contribute to society through innovative enterprises. We have been creating new value through building intelligence, remote surveillance, and cloud services while our CSR programs help accelerate the sustainability of society today.

A major aspect of sustainability is to coordinate the surrounding resources and launch pioneering activities. Through concerted innovation, Hitachi hopes to solve problems concerning the livelihood of people, such as elevator safety, elevator service, and elevator retrofitting and provide new value for social development. For example, Hitachi and AQSIQ (Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection, and Quarantine) have jointly launched an elevator safety regulation reform and innovation pilot in Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces, equipped Chow Tai Fook International Financial Center in Guangzhou with the fastest elevator technology in the world, and assisted the Liwan District and Yuexiu district governments in Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province with the establishment of service centers for elevator retrofitting in old buildings. In addition, we have been strategically investing in the community civilization incubating program, and promoting public safety in thousands of schools, communities, and business districts. Through cooperation with universities, schools, and the Golden Autumn Education Fund, we have provided tens of thousands of college and occupational students with skills training and employment support.

The resources from society will eventually be returned to society. In unison with our employees, partners, and other stakeholders, we are working to solve the industrial shortage in public services. We have defined the three main topics of public welfare activities: education, environment, and society. We have been involved in environmental protection and targeted anti-poverty charitable projects with Alashan SEE, Siyuan Poverty Alleviation Fund, and other partners. We wish many more partners will join us to be a public service conscious innovator promoting the sustainable development of cities and communities.

1China Business Strategy 2018: On December 12, 2016, Hitachi developed the China Business Strategy 2018, emphasizing again the importance of the Chinese market and renewing the sales target in China, set at RMB66.3 billion.
