TOKYO -- Hitachi has pledged to go carbon neutral across its value chain by fiscal 2050, becoming one of the first Japanese manufacturing powerhouses to set an ambitious sustainability target that covers an extensive supplier web.

The industrial group upgraded its climate goal in a statement Monday. Hitachi previously aimed to reduce direct emissions at its factories and offices to zero in net terms by fiscal 2030, while slashing those from suppliers, customers and other related companies 80% by 2050 from 2010 levels.
