President Message

取締役社長 白井 均

Hitachi Research Institute was established in 1973 at the initiative of Kenichiro Komai, then chairman of Hitachi, Ltd., who was a member of the Club of Rome. At that time, a new world order was being reconstructed in the wake of turmoil associated with the Nixon Shock and the first oil crisis. The Club of Rome sounded a warning in "The Limits to Growth" (published in 1972) about human development reaching limits imposed by a growing world population, environmental destruction, and the exhaustion of resources. We might say that today’s global society is also at turning point. As awareness of the global environment and resources heightens, the need for action is recognized, and the vast presence of emerging countries as drivers of the global economy becomes clear. As we are at a turning point, the role of think tanks looking to the future is becoming more and more important. With a range of engineering capabilities and knowledge based on the extensive experience of the Hitachi Group, we will focus on quality research that will be useful to management. We respectfully ask for your continued support.
