To help the Hitachi Group achieve carbon neutrality in its business and production activities by fiscal 2030, Hitachi Astemo Bekasi has introduced an off-balance sheet, solar power generation scheme in which the company does not own the solar power generation equipment installed at the plant, and instead pays for the electricity it consumes based on the amount it generates.

Hitachi Astemo contributes to the reduction of environmental impact through the use of renewable energy, the ongoing promotion of energy conservation, as well as through the expansion of its electrified products and other businesses.
