To achieve greater advancements. To address today's global challenges in resources, energy, and the environment, and build a sustainable society. We have created the Vision as a fresh expression of what the Hitachi Group aims to become in the future.

The Meaning of Red and Blue

Our Mission and Values, embraced with care by our predecessors over Hitachi's 100 year
history and passed on to future generations, are expressed with a color we call
"Inspire Red" to reflect the passion they have always contained, and to signify
that these will never be changed.

And our Vision of what the Hitachi Group aims to become in the future is expressed
in blue, conjuring the image of the vast blue sky we all share.
Just as the world is brought together under one sky, our hope to unite
us as One Hitachi, through our Vision, is expressed with this color.

The Vision expresses what the Hitachi Group aims to become in the future. The slogan "Inspire the Next" is an expression of the Group's desire to make this Vision a reality.

The word "Inspire" comes from the Latin "in" or "into" and "spirare" or "breathe." It means "to breathe life into," "to expand upon," and "to encourage." It also carries the meaning of "lifting spirits and raising awareness," and of "giving energy and courage."

The red line stretching above and to the right of "Next" is called the "Inspire Flash." It represents Hitachi's strong desire to achieve even further growth.

The Hitachi Group aims to help create a society that is overflowing with vitality, by "Inspiring the World".
