Sustainability and
Society 5.0

Welcome to a fascinating new concept: Society 5.0. A broad initiative put forward by the Japanese government, it’s a vision of a new society—and the efforts to bring it about. Society 5.0 is named after the first four groupings of humanity: 1. hunter-gatherer society; 2. agrarian society; 3. industrial society; 4. information society.

The goals of Society 5.0 are developing the economy and resolving social issues; it will do so using revolutionary technologies (such as AI, IoT, and robots) plus various types of societal data. These tools will help bring about a sustainable way of living where everyone moves towards safe and fulfilling lives. At Hitachi GSIB, we aspire to drive innovation together with all our stakeholders in ways that make positive contributions to business and society.
