Recent years have seen a wide range of social issues grow in seriousness, among them climate change, aging infrastructure, and the spread of infection from new viruses, to the point where they now threaten the safe and secure lives of future generations. However, the fruits of advances in cutting-edge technologies will include automation and labor-saving that eases labor shortages, lower energy consumption, and stable energy supply.
Since it was established over 140 years ago, throughout its long history, Toshiba has cultivated creativity and technological abilities, and combined them in solutions to the social issues of the day. Throughout all this, we have evolved with the change of the times, and transformed the shape of the company. Going forward, we will establish new companies: Infrastructure Service Co., to take the lead in realizing carbon neutrality and resilient infrastructure; and Device Co., to support the development of social and information infrastructure. Concentrating resources in the way that best fits the characteristics of each business will allow us to provide high value-added products and services, and to create value that contributes to society.
Infrastructure Service Co. will support customers and partners in achieving their sustainability goals. For instance, with "Energy x Digital" we will use digital technology to provide a full value chain, extending from electric power utilities to consumers, while with "Infrastructure x Digital" we will contribute to resilient infrastructure with solutions that include cutting-edge security systems. Device Co. will contribute to improving the power efficiency of equipment and social infrastructure, and to the advance of society’s digitization, and the evolving information infrastructure.
