In order to grow sustainably and improve social value, Hitachi must meet a range of social expectations. As well as creating the innovation sought by society, we need to establish a working environment where diverse talent can shine, and rigorously implement fair business practices and respect for human rights throughout the value chain. We also aim for greater involvement in and development of the communities related to our businesses.

Human Development

Furthering STEAM education in the United States

STEAM- (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics)

As technology is being integrated into every occupation and business, STEAM education has become increasingly important. Hitachi believes that encouraging STEAM education from an early age is essential to reduce gender and minority gaps in the field of education and fosters critical thinking and innovation.

Supporting STEAM education initiatives also allows Hitachi employees to share their expertise with the next generation. These activities can cultivate excellent young leaders and inspire children and even adults to build careers in STEAM fields.

Hitachi group companies across the country further STEAM education initiatives by donating their time, money, and resources. You can read in detail about our activities in the spotlights below.

Community Support

Augmenting the growth of our local communities

To strengthen ties with our local communities, Hitachi strives to contribute to resolve social issues within communities. Our group companies always aim to develop relationships of mutual trust within the communities we reside by offering assistance to solve ongoing issues of food scarcity and poverty.

Hitachi always encourages its employees to volunteer help during emergencies like natural disasters. We provide additional resources, raise funds, and initiate anonymous donations to ensure that serious issues are relieved effectively and swiftly.

Supply Chain Management

Building a sustainable and resilient supply chain

As a global business, Hitachi recognizes the importance that our supply chain plays in our operations. Because of this, Hitachi views suppliers as collaborative partners and aims to make decisions that allow both the Hitachi group and our suppliers to grow.

Hitachi seeks to fulfill its social responsibility throughout the value chain through its policies and practices. Responsible Supply Chain Management is led by Hitachi America’s Value Chain Integration Division, which works with the Hitachi Corporate Sustainability Group and internal and external stakeholders to make decisions that benefit both the company and society.
