Fujitsu Group Environmental Action Plan (Stage VII)

To set specific targets for putting Fujitsu Group Environmental Policy into practice, the Fujitsu Group formulated medium-term action plans.

For the period FY 2013-2015, Fujitsu has formulated and is enacting the Fujitsu Group Environmental Action Plan (Stage VII).

Fujitsu Group Environmental Action Plan (Stage VII)

Our world faces many challenges relating to population growth. These include the security of supply of energy, other resources and food, climate change, the increasing frequency of natural disasters, and loss of biodiversity. These social and environmental issues are deeply interconnected, and they cannot be managed in isolation. Society expects businesses to proactively take actions to address these challenges.

Deploying information and communications technology (ICT) in an intelligent manner can improve the efficient use of energy and other natural resources and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. ICT can also assist society preparing for and responding to natural disasters. Fujitsu believes ICT has a major role to play in helping society address the world's environmental challenges. Beyond meeting today's demands, ICT has the power to connect people, enable sharing of knowledge and experience, and shape a safer, sustainable, and more prosperous tomorrow.

Through our business activities, Fujitsu will continue to respond to these social and environmental challenges, by increasing the deployment of ICT sustainability solutions throughout society and developing new innovative technologies. As a leading ICT company, we will continue working together with our stakeholders in the global value chain including our customers, partners and suppliers to shape a sustainable and prosperous society.

Archives of targets and performance (FY2013)

By providing ICT solutions in FY 2013, we contributed to reducing customer and society-wide GHG emissions by 10.87 million tons and reduced GHG emissions at our business sites by 66,000 tons year-on-year. We are making steady progress toward achieving our targets by the end of FY 2015. Furthermore, as newly targeted in Stage VII of our Action Plan, we have achieved 21.3% resource efficiency for ICT products, primarily by making our smartphones, PCs, and servers lighter and more compact. In other areas, we are supporting employees' contributions to society, with employees actively participating in countries throughout the world, including teaching at an elementary school in the Philippines and working on forest revitalization activities in Iwate Prefecture.

In FY 2014, we will expand our initiatives, including increasing the effects of GHG emission reductions by providing customers with business solutions, improving the performance of our major datacenters, and investing in facilities and improving operations at our business sites.
