Kubota, the leading Japanese construction and farm equipment manufacturer , continues its mission to sustain development by providing technologies to better produce food, supply clean water, and preserve the environment.
Two revolutions in food and water boosted human development.
First, the mechanization of farming liberated societies from millennia of back-breaking work in the fields and the misery of hunger. With less farmhands necessary, the surplus of human talent moved to cities. These dense urban conglomerations became engines of growth, but also generated pollution and disease. A second revolution in modern waterworks and sanitation then brought these threats under control.
These revolutions continue today. Emerging economies across the world are modernizing their agricultural production and building water systems to support burgeoning urban populations. But planetary challenges such as climate change mean smarter solutions will be needed to further these advances.
At the frontlines of these challenges is Kubota, a leading Japanese farm equipment and water infrastructure maker.
“Since its founding, Kubota has evolved its technologies to contribute in the areas of food, water and the environment which are indispensable to the development of mankind,” says Masatoshi Kimata, President and Representative Director of Kubota.
“Looking forward, we will continue on this mission by setting sustainable development goals (SDGs) as our compass.”
