Responsible Business

"As the role of IT becomes more pervasive in everyday life Fujitsu remains committed to making a positive impact to the society in which we operate. This commitment to responsible business, embodied in our ongoing Responsible Business program, remains at the heart of our long term strategy"

-Duncan Tait (Corporate Executive Office and SEVP, Head of EMEIA and Americas, Fujitsu)

Our Approach & the Fujitsu Way

Across Fujitsu globally we recognise that when implemented correctly and genuinely, responsible and ethical behaviours create shared value. Responsible Business has been a substantial part of the Fujitsu Way (our corporate philosophy) since its inception, and therefore to our company DNA. It is genuine and longstanding, and our practice has been recognised and applauded externally in many benchmarks and indices

Our approach, and framework, outlined below, fully aligns to our global policy and vision of President Tanaka.

Our European Framework

Responsible practices are driven across the entire company, from protecting intellectual property rights and enforcing our human rights policy to encouraging all employees to get involved with community action projects. Our responsible business pillars – Environment, Community Involvement & Development, Diversity & Inclusion, Wellbeing and Operating Practices - are the foundation for our country level strategy whilst defining common themes across Fujitsu.

Activities in Netherlands

“When engaging with our customers, we always take a long-term vision into account. We look ahead for both the sake of our own people and of course for our customers. Working in a sustainable way and participating as a responsible member in society means that we have the ambition to stay successful and relevant for our customers and their customers for the future.
In everything we do, we operate in a sustainable way with respect for everyone in this ecosystem. For us, being a responsible business in the Netherlands, carries the same imperative as our commercial and legal objectives.”        

                       – Bas de Reus (Managing Director, Fujitsu Netherlands)

Together We Make The Difference: We are passionate about transforming lives

Charity Partner, Stichting Hulphond (Foundation Dog-aid).

Hulphond Netherlands leads over 25 years’ dogs to assistance dogs with the goal of increasing owner independence and autonomy andthus (re) integration into society. Fujitsu Netherlands is proud to be the sole sponsor of a very special aid dog called “Enjo” since his birth.

Charity Foundation DEAN
(Digital Education Africa Network, formerly known as ViAfrica)

DEAN mission is unleashing the potential of students, teachers and the educational sector through digital education as well as contributing to positive socio-economic change in Africa.

Fujitsu Netherlands is honored to be able to support a charity with such impactful initiatives such the CLASSworks program in which we have provided more than 280 schools with state of the art computer rooms – enabling teachers and students to become more digitally enabled. We believe that everyone should have an equal opportunity and we try to ensure everyone has access to the IT that can enrich their lives, therefore we contribute depreciated hardware for students in Kenya and Tanzania, and provide knowledge and expertise.

Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and Inclusion are extremely important to Fujitsu Netherlands. We provide opportunities for young people and graduates. For these graduates there is an EMEIA Graduate Program available and for people with a distance to the labour market we try to find a suitable workspace within our company.

Fujitsu Family Wellbeing Comes First

We care about our employees and their wellbeing: we provide a reduced fitness membership, so they have access to facilities to improve their physical wellbeing. Besides this fitness memberships. We encourage our employees to actively participate in the Global Corporate Challenge (GCC), which is an annual, global walking competition around the world with more than 300,000 participants. This not only encourages healthy competition but team spirit and a more active lifestyle. We also provide the yearly Influenza Vaccination, which is available for our employees.

Dedicated to being Green

We also take the environment seriously. We look for ways to reduce our own energy consumption, reduce the paper waste and adhere to the Fujitsu’s Green Procurement Policy.

Our customers

Fujitsu is taking a leadership role, proactively pursuing our goals across our entire global value chain, with customers, partners and suppliers. We want to work with organisations who share our values and collaborate to make positive change. We continue to respond to social and environmental challenges by increasing sustainable ICT products and solutions and developing innovative technologies which reduce the environmental impact of our customers' businesses.

In Spain for example, we worked with Caixa Bank who has one of Europe’s largest ATM networks. Fujitsu replaced all ATMs to not just enhance speed, flexibility and forge detection, but also to introduce special features to improve usability for the older and disabled community. In Netherlands major utility hubs are supported by Fujitsu solutions. At water company Clear Water, we do not just deliver datacentre and network management services, but enable a reduction in energy usage and CO2 footprint. We contribute with durable, sustainable and energy efficient hardware.
