Hitachi has also identified addressing global warming as a high priority, laying out its “Environmental Vision 2025”, which includes goals both for its own operations as well as a reduction goal of 100 million tonnes of CO2 from its solutions offerings.

As a result, Hitachi lags far behind other IT leaders in developing and deploying the type of IT solutions identified in the SMARTer2020 report.
