Thu, 28th Sep 2023

Hitachi Vantara, the modern infrastructure, data management and digital solutions subsidiary of Hitachi Limited, has announced new sustainability solutions and services to aid organisations in achieving critical environmental and decarbonisation goals. Leveraging expertise in industrial domains, green transformation, energy, and mobility, Hitachi Vantara’s new offerings enable organisations to adopt sustainable business practices that pave the way to a greener future.

Hitachi's sustainability solutions and services are designed to better understand and reduce the carbon footprint from physical and digital operations. The comprehensive collection of services and solutions focuses on four key areas crucial for decarbonisation.

Clients can understand your IT footprint holistically through insights to decarbonise IT assets and operations, including application and asset energy efficiency, power supply and equipment, scope 3 cloud emissions, energy-efficient IT architecture, and Hitachi Vantara's eco-friendly storage portfolio and data stewardship.

Clients can understand energy consumption and carbon emissions across manufacturing processes and value chains to realise business growth through lower carbon intensity and resource efficiency.

Clients can create an optimised system built for their needs by incorporating sensors, advanced analytics, and control systems to achieve greater energy efficiencies and cost savings.

Clients can co-create solutions for more significant impact on social and environmental issues that matter the most to you and your stakeholders through Hitachi's extensive expertise in IoT, advanced analytics, digital twin, and AI technologies.

“Decarbonisation is no longer reserved for the most environmentally conscious as industries face increasing regulation and requirements to limit carbon contributions,” says Bjoern Stengel, IDC’s global sustainability research lead. “This new approach by Hitachi Vantara gives customers the tools to make informed decisions about its process and create solutions that will truly impact the bottom line, both in sustainability and monetarily.”

Leveraging the wider Hitachi group's collective experience and cutting-edge technologies, the new Sustainability Solutions and Services portfolio empowers customers to define and implement a realistic, measurable roadmap towards achieving carbon neutrality targets. Insights from precision dashboards can now quickly identify carbon 'hot spots' and prioritise areas to realise environmental goals and business ambitions.

To better understand specific needs before embarking on a carbon reduction plan, Hitachi sustainability solutions and services help customers define a quantifiable path forward, augmented with tailored digital solutions to streamline and transform organisations.

“The agriculture industry is facing increasingly strict requirements to reduce the overheads of water usage, improve environmental outcomes, and ensure we maintain compliance with regulatory requirements,” said Wayne Parr, director at Golden Grove Nursery, the dominant supplier of citrus nursery trees to the Queensland, Australia citrus industry.

“Golden Grove produces between 200,000 to 250,000 citrus nursery trees per year, supplying up to 70% of Queensland’s citrus growers and commercial orchards. Using the power of data and Hitachi Sustainability Solutions and Services to improve our irrigation management processes, we’re now able to intelligently monitor the irrigation systems daily and understand exactly when to water so we can identify and adjust for the months ahead.”
