Hitachi Asia to participate in IBEW 2022 as Diamond Sponsor
Powering Green Transformation in the Built Sector
Singapore, August 04, 2022 – Hitachi Asia, Ltd. is delighted to be the Diamond sponsor of the International Built Environment Week (IBEW) 2022, set to take place on 5th – 9th September 2022 at Sands Expo & Convention Centre. With a focus on powering green transformation this year, this sponsorship is a perfect fit with our Social Innovation Business and dedication to Powering Good.
A recent finding by United Nations suggested that building and construction accounted for a massive 39% of all carbon emissions in the world – an alarming alert for more to be done if we want to mitigate climate change and avert a global disaster for our future generation. With a common goal to drive growth and accelerate green transformations, the region’s most anticipated Built Environment event will see industry leaders and experts convene to discuss the latest and future trends of the sector.
Committed to solving societal challenges, Hitachi has a goal of going carbon neutral across its factories and offices by 2030. Hitachi is also focusing on Green Transformation Strategy to drive corporate growth. The products and solutions showcased at the BEX Asia tradeshow, taking place from 6th-8th September, part of IBEW, will show how Hitachi is powering Green Transformation in the region.
Theo Scherman, Chief Strategy Officer APAC, and GM Environmental Division will be speaking at the main conference session In Conversation: Towards A Low-Carbon Built Environment Ecosystem, on 6 September 2022, where he will deep dive into topics of decarbonisation and sustainable value chains.
