On types of businesses the Hitachi Foundation supports…

Strong: “We’re particularly interested in industries that, in the US, still employ large numbers of low-income people, because those are the companies that are in the most control over the factors we’re interested in.” 


On the goals for the Hitachi Foundation’s Pioneer Employer Program…

Strong: “We want to now find the next wave of early adopters, the next 5-7 percent of companies who want to take care of their workers.  Their hearts are in the right place for all the right reasons, but they may not have figured out a way to do it yet that’s fiscally sustainable for them.”  


On how the Hitachi Foundation helps businesses…

Strong: “One thing that we want to do in sharing these stories is show how companies have taken [funding] resources and found ways to really maximize it and bring them a return, while also creating significant opportunities for advancement in their communities and for their own employees.”

We educate, motivate, and recognize smaller enterprises for their efforts towards becoming more sustainable. We’re here to offer tangible, practical tips and expertise in sustainability.
