The sustainable management of water during withdrawal and use favours the maintenance and improvement of the use of this precious, ensuring less waste and a reduced environmental impact.
The company is aware that it can continually improve water use by reducing pollution, eliminating waste and fighting the release of chemicals and hazardous materials, halving the percentage of untreated wastewater and substantially increasing recycling and safe reuse.
Hitachi Rail's core business does not critically highlight the use of this resource. However, the commitment in the control and management of this resource is always very high, even in related indirect activities.
The waste water produced at the sites can be classified on the basis of its use upstream from disposal, as domestic or similar and industrial (only from production sites).
