Contributing to a Sustainable Society through ICT Services
The effort to "Contribute to sustainable development of society through provision of ICT services" is one of the goals in the Fujitsu Group's Environmental Action Plan (Stage VIII). With the United Nations having adopted a set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015, thereby laying out clear international targets, the Fujitsu Group is now aiming to contribute even more to the sustainability of customers and society.
Bringing that vision of a sustainable society to fruition will require initiatives to tackle a wide variety of social and environmental issues, ranging from combating global warming through reductions in GHG emissions to saving natural resources, preserving biodiversity, stabilizing food supplies, responding to urbanization, and protecting against disasters. Information and communication technology (ICT), which helps optimize, streamline, and automate processes in a diverse mix of fields, has the power to drive solutions to the problems that society and the natural environment are facing. By leveraging its ICT services and working with customers, the Fujitsu Group is determined to play an important role in achieving SDGs on a global scale.
FY 2016 Performance and Results
Publishing Case Studies of ICT-Driven Approaches to SDGs
Fujitsu published nine case studies of efforts to contribute to SDGs, including educational solutions featuring content that underscores the importance of conserving natural resources, basic intelligence infrastructures for protecting biodiversity, disaster-prevention solutions for reducing damage from sewer flooding resulting from torrential rain, and next-generation bus location services.
Publicizing Efforts via outside Channels and Holding Seminars and Workshops for Employees
In working to create ICT services that help achieve SDGs, Fujitsu presented case studies of various ICT services at the UN-sponsored UNFCCC NAP Expo and other international conferences. The Company also used its intranet to distribute information and held internal seminars and workshops for employees.
Implement internal communication to create ICT services starting from SDGs
We created video content "SDGs to tackle with ICT" which explained the relationship between ICT service and SDGs in an easy-to-understand manner, and conducted in-house seminars and workshops on the themes of SDGs and climate change.
Efforts toward Sustainable Development of Society
The Fujitsu Group contributes to the realization of a sustainable society through the provision of various services and solutions.
ICT can help reduction of the amount of energy and resources used, movement of people and materials, and office space required for business operations, which eventuates into a reduction in GHG emissions. The Fujitsu Group has been increasing the contribution of its customers and society as a whole on the reduction of GHG emissions, by quantitatively assessing the amount of GHG emissions that can be reduced by adopting ICT.
We offer our customers solutions that support implementation and advancement of environmental management to support their competitiveness and reduce environmental burden. (link to Japanese site)
