Sustainability within Hitachi Rail STS and UN Agenda 2030
Hitachi Rail STS considers the social, economic, logistical, architectural, environmental and structural context of each project it develops, planning, designing and building signalling, railway and mass transportation systems that provide the best possible combination of safety, efficiency and return on investment.
On 25 September 2015, the United Nations approved the Global Sustainable Development Agenda and 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), broken down into 169 targets to be met by 2030. The Agenda requires significant engagement from all members of society, including businesses, civil companies, the public sector, philanthropic institutions, universities, research centres, news operators and cultural organisations.
Hitachi Rail STS has identified the UN Sustainability Goals that it is able to help reach:
- through management models which enable the Company to follow a path of sustainable growth and guarantee a cohesive culture of responsibility, and promote sustainable actions by individual collaborators: corporate commitment
- through the achievement of the company’s mission, which is to develop railway and mass transit systems, and create increasingly sophisticated products and solutions that are safe, convenient, efficient and environmentally sustainable: business strategy
