Hitachi Vantara has unveiled its inaugural Sustainability Report, emphasizing its position as a leader in digital infrastructure sustainability innovation and reaffirming its commitment to responsible business practices. The report, released today, outlines the company's initiatives and future steps towards sustainability, reflecting Hitachi Vantara's dedication to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) principles.

Covering initiatives pre-reorganization in fiscal year 2023 and current practices, the report underscores collaboration within Hitachi Vantara's global workforce and aligns with international standards and United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Notably, it highlights sustainability innovation integrated into the company's storage infrastructure portfolio, including CO2 reduction technology.

Key highlights include Hitachi Vantara's commitment to circular economy principles in product design and end-of-life management, as well as efforts to manage carbon emissions across global sites. The company's social impact initiatives include supporting education in South Africa and combating classroom hunger in India.

Hitachi Vantara has collaborated with global customers to improve efficiency and sustainability. For instance, it assisted BMW Group in achieving a smaller footprint and reduced power consumption by 80%. Similarly, Gijima, a South African ICT company, reduced power consumption by 66% through infrastructure consolidation, while Türk Telekom decreased its environmental footprint by approximately 60% through a new data architecture.

Mehmet Fatih Bekin, data center and cloud services director at Türk Telekom, said, "We need to be sure that our storage systems won't start causing bottlenecks that could impact performance and reliability for our end-users. And just as importantly, the energy efficiency of our new VSP arrays is not just better for the environment, it also reduces our operational expenditure."
