Hitachi's Social Innovation Business and
Sustainability in Oceania

In 2015, the United Nations announced 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to be achieved by 2030, including goals for ending poverty, fighting inequality and injustice, and tackling climate change. The SDGs are not just a blueprint but a comprehensive action plan for businesses, governments, and communities to support the shared prosperity of people and the planet. Organisations are expected to develop long-term frameworks and take ownership of this push for sustainability to realise the SDGs and create a better world.

Hitachi considers responding to these challenges to realise a sustainable society and improve quality of life to be the aim of our Social Innovation Business and a source of sustainable growth.

Below is how some of Hitachi’s Social Innovation projects in Oceania are contributing to address the SDGs:
