Social Innovation in Smart Spaces

Improve quality of life, increase resiliency and optimize safety for all.

Cities around the world face increasing pressure from population growth and technological disruption. Residents want to feel safe and live in a sustainable city that’s near opportunities. Businesses want to locate where they have the resources to thrive. Not only are more people moving to cities, but they generate 80% of GDP, 70% of emissions, and consume 66% of our energy – how cities manage growth will determine our world’s ability to flourish. Hitachi views cities as an efficient interaction of people, communities and technology – and co-creates with that ecosystem to provide social, environmental and economic values for businesses and society.
