We are proud of our strategic partner Hitachi, Ltd. for enlisting as a Principal Partner in the upcoming International Climate Change Summit (COP26) in Glasgow, Scotland. The global conference will run from November 1-12, 2021, and with last week’s release of a dire IPCC update on climate change acceleration, which U.N. Secretary General António Guterres called a “code red for humanity”, worldwide action on carbon reduction and climate change mitigation has never been more important.
In Hitachi’s Social Innovation vision, low-carbon and resource-efficient innovations are a top priority. And with its worldwide operations and offerings in advanced manufacturing, infrastructure, and electric grid operations, Hitachi is uniquely positioned for impact.
As Alistair Dormer, Chief Environmental Officer of Hitachi, Ltd., stated: “Partnering with COP26 and playing our role in tackling climate change is a source of great pride for Hitachi. We are actively orienting our business towards the sustainable technology of the future. We see IT, Smart Energy, Industry and Mobility as having a major role to play in decarbonisation and believe we can use our many businesses and the power of digital innovation, to help governments, cities and businesses reduce their environmental impact.” Learn more about COP26 here.
