Raising Awareness through an In-House Award Scheme
Holding the Environmental Contribution Award
To raise the environmental awareness of employees at all Fujitsu Group companies, we have operated an Environmental Contribution Awards scheme to recognize business and activities contributing to the environment. The awards scheme is open to all employees and has been operated every year since 1995.
In the field of contributing to customers and society, this award recognizes accomplishments such as products which use innovative energy-saving technology to contribute to reducing the amount of power used by the customer, increases in logistics efficiency which lead to improvements in traffic pollution, and IoT services that contribute to the prevention of heatstroke. Furthermore, in the field of initiatives within one’s own business activities, in addition to achieving reduced environmental load by implementing advanced technology based on onsite expertise, awards were given to paperless initiatives in conjunction with workstyle transformation, the use of renewable energy at overseas offices, and initiatives for promoting the use of EVs as company cars.
Winners of the FY 2017 Environmental Grand Prize (Environmental Contribution Award)
- Installed a liquid immersion cooling system
The Japan Automobile Research Institute installed the Fujitsu Group's first PC cluster using a liquid immersion cooling system. This marked the first use of the system outside of field trials. Compared to conventional air-cooling system, our system reduces power consumption by a maximum of 40%.
- Reduced amount of water used at factory of Shinko Electric Industries Co., Ltd.
For wet processes which use large amounts of water, we used equipment such as ultrasonic flowmeter to conduct a thorough survey of water usage amount. We performed detailed analysis for the required amount of water usage for each process and then reduced the amount of water supplied by considering quality elements such as revision of water pressure and nozzle shape. We also surveyed the water quality of waste water and suppressed the amount of water supply during desalination by using waste water with a low degree of pollution as recycled waste water. Overall, we achieved significant reductions in the amount of water used. (Reductions in amount of water used.)
