Responsible Business Report FY19/20
This year, extraordinary local and global events have threatened community and environment in a way, and on a scale, that we have not previously witnessed. The tragedy of New Zealand’s White Island volcano eruption was quickly followed by the devastating Australian summer bushfires, and then the emergence of the coronavirus pandemic that has challenged every part of society. At Fujitsu, we believe that technology can and will play a key role in how Australia and New Zealand adapt to these challenges. We believe that our progress and efforts towards conducting our business responsibly – creating value for customers, employees, society and the planet - will be what ensures Fujitsu’s resilience and continued success. This report (for the year 1 April 2019 – 31 March 2020) documents our continuing efforts in the Oceania region and supplements the Fujitsu Group’s Global Sustainability Report.
