Targets and Results for the Fujitsu Group Environmental Protection Program (Stage VI)

Action Plan and Targets for the Period from FY 2010 through 2012

In April 2010, we created the Fujitsu Group Environmental Protection Program (Stage VI) to run from FY 2010 to the fiscal year ending March 31, 2013 (FY 2012).

The program is based on the three targets established in Green Policy 2020 and defines six key areas: strengthening advanced green ICT R&D, improving the environmental value of products and services and strengthening the development and provision of green ICT, strengthening efforts to reduce the environmental burden of the Group itself, strengthening our foundation for environmental management, promoting activities that make environmental contributions to society, and promoting activities that conserve biodiversity. Moreover, we have established a further 18 items to serve as specific program targets.

All Fujitsu Group Environmental Protection Program (Stage VI) Targets Achieved

In FY 2012, the final year of Fujitsu Group Environmental Protection Program (Stage VI), we achieved all of the fiscal year targets, thereby, also achieving all of the targets for the three years covered by the program. Among those were targets revised upward for FY 2011; namely, advanced green ICT R&D, environmental efficiency factors, renewable energy, and CO2 reduction in distribution and transportation.
