As a firm believer of contributing back to society, "Powering Good" is of utmost importance to Hitachi. Pursuing a decade of "social innovation", we take pride in our products and solutions that address challenges confronting society.
While situations and circumstances may change, Hitachi's commitment to contributing to Singapore’s community remained constant. Other than our core businesses to support the nation's economic development transformations, Hitachi's dedication to improve the overall well-being, create happiness and fond memories for the community is well-defined in its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities here in Singapore.
Since 1991, Hitachi has continually brought year-end festivities to life on the famed shopping street with its sponsorship for the signature event. The sponsorship of the annual Christmas on A Great Street truly echoes our social values and we look forward to this meaningful and exciting event year after year.
We had seen more than 5 million Singaporeans and tourists on the lit streets each year before the pandemic. However, it has become clear that the virus and its effects will be in our midst for a long time. As our fight with the pandemic continues, Christmas on A Great Street has come timely to inspire and boost the spirits of the people.
Along with the sponsorship of annual Christmas on A Great Street, Hitachi and its Group of Companies (GoCs) have come together as “One Hitachi” to fundraise for Community Chest.
For more than 3 decades, Hitachi’s yearly donations to Community Chest has helped over 100 social service agencies across various sectors in Singapore. This fundraising effort is part of the Christmas on A Great Street event that resonates with us to power good from within.
Powering Good is the cornerstone of Hitachi’s work globally. We hope to inspire more conglomerates and individuals to join us in empowering the communities for a better life.
You can do your part to empower too. Let’s come together to power good and lend a helping hand to the less privileged communities. Scan the QR code below to make a token donation to ComChest:

In Hitachi's journey of giving, employees have also taken the initiative to propose activities to support various social causes in Singapore. Aptly named "Hitachi Plays Santa", the ground-up initiative garnered tremendous support and overwhelming responses from our employees each year.
Since 2017, Hitachi's employees have partnered various social services agencies each year to spread festive joys to the less privileged communities in Singapore.
This year, we have partnered with "Willing Hearts" to prepare and distribute meals to the needy families. Joined by colleagues from Hitachi Asia Ltd. and its GoCs, the day's event concluded successfully, with many looking forward to the next session.

Small actions can make a big difference on climate change. Be it at home or in the community, actions we take, habits we cultivate and lifestyle we live, can have an impact on the carbon footprints we leave behind.
