Fujitsu Services has over 130 buildings and over 12,000 staff across the UK alone, plus other operations around the world. The company has long recognised that as a large global organisation it needed to minimise the impact of its operations on the environment.
The company has implemented various measures to reduce its carbon footprint, and is seeing strong benefits as a result. By promoting the use of tele and video conferencing wherever possible instead of travelling, staff lose less time and are more productive. Making sure that building management systems are working properly has resulted in a 10 per cent reduction in energy bills. Employees are also encouraged to switch off lights and equipment when they are not needed to be used, incentive schemes are helping to bring staff on board. For example, staff eligible for a company vehicle are offered a higher grade car if they chose a lower emission option.
