The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations in 2015 are a set of common goals to be achieved worldwide, including by developed countries, by 2030. Achieving these goals places considerable demand on private-sector enterprises to play an active and useful role through their technology and capacity for innovation.
The Fujitsu Group sees the SDGs as a global common language and undertakes SDG-related activities as an opportunity for wide-ranging collaboration with other organizations, including international agencies and governments, private companies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). Fujitsu recognizes SDGs as one of the elements in an ecosystem for achieving its growth strategy of 'connected services', seeing new business opportunities through ventures that work to resolve social issues. By adopting a multifaceted approach through cooperation with a large numbers of partners, we can create and grow social value on an even larger scale.
Adopting an approach that overlaps common international social goals with the role that Fujitsu must play will allow us to flexibly transform our management and business in ways that are not bound by existing approaches and methodologies. Through this process, we will re-examine ourselves in light of society's expectations and demands and will actively use the SDGs as a tool in our management strategy for achieving sustainable growth.
As a first step, we have identified some of the goals that we need to address strategically, given the nature of our own businesses and the external environment. Using the digital technology that is at the core of our business, the Fujitsu Group is focused on goals 2, 3, 9 and 11 as the areas where it can deliver the greatest value and is progressing business initiatives in these areas.
Because the creation of value on a large scale by addressing the SDGs is inextricably tied to innovating its own business, Fujitsu is promoting a company-wide project that cuts across all levels. This is focused on staff members and includes executives in the Corporate, Sales and Business divisions, but also incorporates related divisions such as Fujitsu Laboratories and the Fujitsu Research Institute. From the perspective primarily of sustainability and social responsibility by the Corporate division, the perspective of business development by the Sales division, and the perspective of solutions by the Business division, as a starting point we are collaborating in the verification and promotion of businesses that offer solutions to social issues - cementing new ties through the co-creation of both social and economic value.
In March 2017, Fujitsu entered into a partnership to build and operate a global database at the Global Centre for Disaster Statistics (GCDS), newly established by Tohoku University's International Research Institute of Disaster Science and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
Fujitsu will provide the FUJITSU Cloud Service K5 at no charge to assist in designing and building the global database for the GCDS and will also support the UNDP in using the database to improve other countries' disaster prevention policy capabilities by providing data visibility and analysis services. This partnership will work to mitigate the damage associated with natural disasters, now estimated to exceed 56 trillion yen in value worldwide each year.
