It is impossible for human beings to avoid the various environmental and social problems, as represented in SDGs and planetary boundaries, which have arisen as a result of the growth of our species.
Digital technologies play a crucial role in solving these problems and growing humanity in a sustainable way.
Through the utilization of data, which is the key to digitalization, undiscovered solutions and new services that can change the future have been created.
Even on the global stage, Hitachi is an unique company that has control operation technology (OT) and products, in addition to digital technology (IT) such as AI (artificial intelligence) and big data analysis.
We have a division that maximizes these strengths to globally provide, via Lumada, digital solutions such as for high-added-value social infrastructure to solve environmental and social problems, with the aim to realize a sustainable society and improve both the QoL of people and the corporate value of our customers; that division is Hitachifs Social Innovation Business Division.
The Social Business Incubation and Development conducts strategic planning and business development to accelerate these activities. We conduct business activities not only in Japan, but also across the world in countries and regions such as the U.S., China, Asia, Australia, Europe, Russia, the Middle East and Africa. As responsible professional business people with business expertise, each member of our staff connects our customers to the Hitachi Group and companies outside the Group, promoting business with a long-term perspective and leading the social innovation business on a global scale.
