Fujitsu Chosen for the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index for 16th Time

First time to be chosen as one of 24 industry group leaders

Fujitsu Limited

Tokyo, September 25, 2015

Fujitsu today announced that it has been chosen for inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World), the world's leading Socially Responsible Investment (SRI)(1) index. This is the 16th time for Fujitsu to have been included in this index since its creation in 1999. Moreover, Fujitsu achieved the highest points in the Software & Services industry group, one of 24 industry groups, and was chosen as an Industry Group Leader for the first time.

DJSI World is a stock index offered cooperatively by US-based S&P Dow Jones Indices and Switzerland-based RobecoSAM Indices that selects companies for their excellent sustainability, based on an analysis from the perspective of economics, the environment, and society. Annually, 2,500 companies are eligible globally for selection, and from the perspective of sustainability, the top 10% of businesses per industry are chosen. In 2015, including Fujitsu, 317 companies were selected for DJSI World, 20 of them Japanese companies. Furthermore, one company is chosen as an Industry Leader for each of 59 industry fields, and these are combined into 24 industry groups, each with an Industry Group Leader.

Fujitsu achieved high evaluations in its industry group on the basis of its economic efforts, such as brand management and risk and crisis management, its environmental efforts, beginning with the deployment of its environmental management system and its ongoing environmental burden reducing activities, and its social efforts, such as its corporate citizenship activities and its human capital development.

Fujitsu will continue to advance business activities from the perspective of the environment, society, and governance (ESG), and as a truly global ICT company, further increase its efforts to contribute to the sustainable development of society and the Earth.
