In 2022, facing increasingly complex social issues, Hitachi Elevator was able to overcome all these challenges with high agility and flexibility.We have not only enhanced public health prevention and control through digital technologies and solutions, but also leveraged our "5+2" manufacturing network and resilient supply chain to ensure normal operation of various activities and product supply in a timely manner, and do our utmost to protect the lifeline of vertical transportation.Under the grand context of China's "carbon neutrality" goal, Hitachi Elevator attaches great importance to our responsibility of reducing carbon emissions, and integrates the "carbon neutrality" goal into our business development.Relying on Hitachi BIVALE energy visualization management system, we have achieved refined energy management, as well as improved production efficiency and energy utilization. Through continuous development of photovoltaic facilities and gradual transition to renewable energy, we have actively promoted energy conservation and emission reduction in the manufacturing process. Environmental objectives have been taken into priority consideration in the product design stage, aiming to reduce the environmental load in the entire life cycle of products through development and application of elevator energy-saving technologies and efficient building management systems. A series of carbon reduction actions have been carried out through cooperation upstream and downstream, to minimize CO2 emissions in the entire value chain, improve efficiency of environmental governance in the supply chain system, and promote high-quality development of the industry.

In 2023, Hitachi Elevator will continue to focus on technological innovation, empower transformation through "digitization" and "greenization", build a more vibrant building ecosystem, and jointly create a better life.
