Fujitsu Ranks in Newsweek’s Global Top 500 Green Companies

Fujitsu provides savings and environmental benefits to customers


Montreal, QC, October 17, 2011 —  Fujitsu, a leading provider of ICT business solutions, today announced it has been included in the Newsweek Green Global 500 Ranking, coming in as Number 13. The Newsweek Green Ranking places companies based on their actual environmental footprint, management of that footprint and sustainability communications. The analysis provides a reliable, cross-industry framework for comparing the environmental commitment and performance of major companies.

Now in its third year, the Newsweek Green Ranking assesses the environmental performance of the largest publicly traded companies in America. This year, the range has been expanded to include the largest international companies: the Global 500 list.

Newsweek's is a rigorous, peer-reviewed research process, including both quantitative and qualitative data from some of the world’s leading environmental research organizations. Given the ranking’s visibility, it presents a strong incentive for companies to work on improving their environmental impact and multi-stakeholder dialogue.

Alison Rowe, Global Executive Director Sustainability, Fujitsu Limited, said: “Inclusion in the Newsweek Green Global 500 Ranking acknowledges Fujitsu’s ability to help customers execute effective projects based on Green IT practices and products that deliver both operational savings and environmental benefits throughout the supply chain.”

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 been placed in Computerworld’s Top 12 Green IT Vendors list for the last three years.
