Activities for Environment

Environmental Management System

If an executive officer is responsible for environmental business, Hitachi Capital also appoints them to the role of environmental management officer. Our Environmental Committee, including members from each department, is building our Environmental Management System. The Committee formulates and promotes the environmental action plan for each fiscal year.
We also use the Hitachi Group’ s internal environmental audits to work towards continuously improving our Environmental Management System.

The ISO14001 certification acquisition

To ensure the reliable execution of environmental targets and an increase in those targets, in 2001 Hitachi Capital Services Co., Ltd. in Japan acquired ISO14001:2004 certification, the international standard for environmental management systems, and in 2009 Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions Ltd.(current Hitachi Capital (UK) PLC) in the United Kingdom also attained this standard.

Environmentally-friendly Products and Services

Together with our stakeholders we are implementing various initiatives to contribute to environmental conservation and provide “Win-Win” environmentally- friendly products and services. Especially, we treat climate changes as the one of the material issues, that we set the Eco and Energy business as group common business in Mid-term Management Plan for fiscal 2018. We cooperate to CDP* questionnaire and disclose the risk and opportunity, management system, and strategy around climate changes and the volume of global warming gas emissions. Additionally, to set mid-and-long-term goal setting and measure the total CO2 emissions in our group supply chain, we participated the project of the Ministry of Environment in Japan to set Science Based Targets of company’s own and measure CO2 emissions of group supply chain.

Ex-name was Carbon Disclosure Project. CDP is a not-for-profit charity that runs the global disclosure system for investors, companies, cities, states and regions to manage their environmental impacts including CO2 emissions. Over the past 15 years we have created a system that has resulted in unparalleled engagement on environmental issues worldwide.
