Our sustainability efforts through the eyes of others
Whether it is the conservation of our valuable resources by server virtualization and desktop consolidation, commissioning our data center services, or the development of human centric applications, Fujitsu delivers proven sustainable solutions to every industry, every day.
- Lechwerke AG, Germany
Lechwerke AG has achieved the performance of various applications has improved by between 20 and 100%, and response and running times of processes such as generating annual consumption bills has improved by 30% through Fujitsu’s expertise and installed two ETERNUS DX440 S2 systems in two separate LEW data centers, connected by a rapid Storage Area Network.
- The Daiei, Inc., Japan
Daiei, the largest supermarket chain in Japan to reduce the number of physical servers from six to two at each store, delivers significant savings in server administration costs, floor space and overall total costs of ownership (TCO). Further, Daiei decreased power consumption by 55% at each store. The achievement has been shaped by a virtualization and server-consolidation strategy with two Fujitsu PRIMERGY TX150 S7 x86 servers used in each store, along with the Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) from Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
- Aisin Seiki Co., Ltd, Japan
Aisin Seiki reduce TCO by two-thirds and more easily maintain its storage systems by Fujitsu’s PRIMERGY BX920/RX300 servers and ETERNUS NR1000F network disk arrays.
- ARA Assistance, Germany
ARA Assistance reduces its number of servers from 10 to three, reduce energy costs by 60% and cut operating costs by as much as 55% a year. This optimization was achieved by A VMware virtualization solution on the basis of PRIMERGY servers and ETERNUS storage systems combined with a backup concept relying on the ETERNUS tape library solution and software by Symantec.
- PAALGROUP, Germany
PAAL GROUP new data center to reduce energy expenditure by 40% and safeguard customer data and valuable design and engineering details through adopting Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX300 S6 servers and ETERNUS DX90/LT40 storage systems.
- Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company Limited, China
Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company Limited (SPC) – a subsidiary of China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation (Sinopec) – required an IT infrastructure platform to meet high levels of production and efficiency, as well as providing stability and operability for a range of applications.
Services and Solutions
Qantas is aligning its ICT strategies with the Group’s broad sustainability charter. With a $4.4 billion annual fuel bill for its airline fleet, ICT energy use may appear as a blip on the Qantas radar. But as sophisticated technologies underpin the Group’s broad efficiency and corporate social responsibility goals, and its sizeable ICT infrastructure produces a significant 6,000 tonnes of CO2e per year, ICT sustainability must play its part in meeting reduction targets. See how Qantas works with Fujitsu on Sustainability in Part 1 and Part 2 of our video case study.
- Meridian Energy
Meridian Energy is an integrated 100% renewable energy company and the largest electricity generator in New Zealand. Fujitsu is now working with Meridian on a medium-term plan to help the company improve its sustainability measures. The plan includes embedding the Fujitsu ICT Sustainability Framework which includes business case analysis, benchmarking the level of ICT Sustainability Maturity, energy and cost savings models, and a comprehensive roadmap and strategy on how to achieve global best practice in ICT Sustainability.
- Lend Lease
Lend Lease has been designing and building apartments, commercial buildings, infrastructure projects, and more for over 50 years. Lend Lease enlisted Fujitsu and Switch Automation to design an innovative technology platform that becomes the first cloud-based energy monitoring and home automation solution in Australia.
- Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST)
Fujitsu’s solution enabled JAIST to reduce the number of physical nodes from 120 to approximately 50. This represents a 48% reduction in power consumption and a saving of 70% in floor space which allows a reduction of approximately 151.5 tons of CO2 per year.
- The Hokuriku Bank, Ltd., Japan
The Hokuriku Bank reduced annual CO2 emissions were cut by 119 tons, or 40%, thanks to a range of factors involved in the streamlined Fujitsu ICT system now in place throughout the bank.
- Dainippon Screen Manufacturing, Japan
Dainippon Screen is now benefiting from a systemized approach based on a standard template for tracking energy usage and pricing through adopting Fujitsu’s SLIMOFFICE EX environmental management system.
- Kure Medical Center, Japan
Kure Medical Center reduces overall CO2 emissions by 60%, with CO2 emissions from terminals cut by 70%. In addition, the space needed for server equipment has decreased by 60% by Fujitsu’s secure, user-friendly medical information system.
- University of Tokyo’s Institute for Cosmic Ray Research, Japan
The University of Tokyo’s Institute for Cosmic Ray Research worked with Fujitsu to build an experiment-analysis system which observes neutrinos (subatomic particles) to understand the origin of the universe for the Kamioka Observatory. Fujitsu’s solution will help the institute reduce power consumption by 22%.
- YKK Corporation, Japan
Fujitsu worked with YKK Corporation to develop a Factory Energy Management System (FEMS) to help YKK achieve more environmentally sustainable production practices. Fujitsu is also helping YKK compare and analyze manufacturing conditions at each of the company’s plants, as part of wider efforts to reduce energy consumption.
- Tohoku Electric Power Co., Inc., Japan
Tohoku identified a series of steps to reduce the power consumption of the data center’s air conditioning system by 20% a year, equivalent to roughly 350,000 kWh and 120 tons of CO2 thanks to the Fujitsu Laboratories’ optical fiber–based temperature sensing technology to monitor and map temperature distribution within its data center.
- UK Government Cabinet Office (Public Sector Flex program)
Fujitsu has enabled the UK Government Cabinet Office to save 646 tonnes (metric tons) of CO2 since 2007, and cut carbon emissions by over 50% since 2009.
