Fujitsu, a leading provider of ICT business solutions, today announced it has been awarded the No. 1 spot on the Top 12 Green-IT Vendors list by IDG's Computerworld, the premium IT media brand dedicated to providing peer perspective, IT leadership and business results, for the second consecutive year. Fujitsu has been climbing the Computerworld Top 12 Green-IT Vendors list since the Award's inception four years ago, and has now won the prestigious first place in both 2010 and 2011, the only company to do so.
Computerworld set out to identify organizations that are implementing smart, efficient strategies to achieve "green IT." Seventy organizations responded to Computerworld's open invitation to complete a comprehensive online questionnaire, which closed in August. Computerworld verified the information to establish which organizations are working best to reduce energy consumption in IT equipment and using technology to conserve energy and lower carbon emissions. Based on a weighting scheme, the Top 12 Green-IT Users and Top 12 Green-IT Vendors lists were chosen.
The lists were announced in the October 24 issue of Computerworld and online at Computerworld.com.
Alison Rowe, Global Executive Director Sustainability, Fujitsu Limited, said: "Computerworld's role in promoting the value of Green IT technologies and practices is to be applauded. Fujitsu has a long commitment to sustainability, both internally and in assisting the achievements of our customers and is extremely proud of this recognition."
Fujitsu's ICT sustainability strategies drive business performance while minimizing environmental impact and shaping a prosperous low-carbon future. A business model based on sustainability provides customers with greater opportunities for differentiated brand stewardship and increased marketshare, improved corporate culture, and "trusted advisor" customer loyalty. Fujitsu's Green Policy 2020 has the specific goal of reducing global customer CO2 emissions by 30 million tons by the end of this decade.
"Many of the organizations recognized in our fourth annual Top Green-IT issue have woven energy-saving initiatives into the fabric of their IT strategies," said Scot Finnie, editor in chief, Computerworld. "These top organizations are tapping the collective brainpower of their IT staffs to capitalize on existing technologies that lower energy use and seek out new methods to better control their carbon footprints."
In acknowledgement of its world-leading green governance and carbon reduction programs, Fujitsu is also highly ranked by Gartner & WWF on "Global Low-Carbon and Environmental Leadership" and was included in the inaugural 2011 Newsweek Green Global 500 Ranking.
