GHG Emission Reduction through the Provision of ICT

The Fujitsu Group will increase the contribution of its customers and society as a whole to the reduction of GHG emissions, through quantitatively assessing the amount of GHG emissions that can be reduced by adopting ICT.

Our Approach

Through the provision of ICT, the Fujitsu Group is working to create innovations in wide-ranging areas of society, including improvement of efficiency in energy usage, greater efficiency in production activities, and reduction in the movements of people and goods. By doing so, we aim to contribute to the reduction of GHG emissions. We believe that the use of ICT by large numbers of customers will reduce GHGs in society overall, while leading to ongoing business growth for the Fujitsu Group as well.

The Fujitsu Group is working to quantitatively visualize – and also expand – the contribution to GHG reductions from the ICT used by our customers. Between FY 2009 and FY 2012, this ICT usage has contributed to a cumulative reduction of 12.23 million tons of CO2 emissions. From FY 2013, we will extend the scope of our targets overseas, and aim to contribute to a global cumulative reduction in emissions of 26 million tons or more over the three years through FY 2015.

Fujitsu Group Environmental Action Plan (Stage VII) Targets

Contribution to Society by ICT: Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions

As part of the Fujitsu Group Environmental Action Plan (Stage VII), we have promised to help lower the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of our customers and society by providing ICT solutions. Our target is to achieve a reduction of 26 million tons - 16 million in Japan and 10 million overseas - over the three-year period of FY 2013-2015.This target constitutes a global expansion of the Fujitsu Group Environmental Protection Program (Stage VI) target of reducing CO2 emissions by customers and society by a total of 15 million tons or more through the provision of green ICT over the four-year period of FY 2009-2012.

Method to calculate the contribution to GHG reduction

At the Fujitsu Group, we have quantitatively assessed the environmental burden reduction effect of our ICT (in CO2 emissions) using an environmental impact assessment method developed by Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. in 2004. More than 350 cases have been assessed to date, and CO2 emissions reduction effect per revenue (CO2 reduction amount basic unit) using the data accumulated.

On calculation of GHG emissions reduction contribution, the annual reduction amount is derived from the basic unit and the annual sales of solutions by category.
