CSR Policy and Promotion Framework
CSR at Fujitsu is practiced by implementing the Fujitsu Way. In all its business activities, by implementing the Fujitsu Way in light of the expectations and needs of multiple stakeholders, the Fujitsu Group contributes to the sustainable development of society and the planet. Our CSR initiatives focus on the five challenges below.
In addressing these challenges, we demonstrate a commitment to responsible business operations as a global ICT company.
To Advance CSR Activities as an Integral Part of Business
Corporate Senior Executive Vice President and Representative Director (Head of Global Corporate Functions)
In December 2010, the Fujitsu Group established a corporate social responsibility (CSR) policy and determined five priority issues around which it will focus its CSR practices.
Based on this CSR policy, the Group will focus on five priorities in a more forceful response to the multiple needs and expectations of stakeholders so as to contribute to the sustainable development of society and the planet, discharging its responsibilities as a truly global ICT company. In addressing the priority issues, Fujitsu will set short- and medium-term objectives and follow the PDCA cycle in making actual progress.
This progress will be disclosed within and outside the company and shared while CSR activities are being made an integral part of management.
In setting priorities, the CSR Promotion Committee, which has representatives from all concerned departments of the Company, formed a basic strategy working group that considered the Global Reporting Initiative guidelines and other internationally recognized CSR norms, identified global social problems, and held repeated discussions to decide those which Fujitsu should address as priorities. Several dialogue sessions were also held with stakeholders, in which they were represented by outside experts, deepening our understanding of their needs and expectations.

Organization Promoting CSR
CSR Promotion Committee
To promote CSR management across the entire Fujitsu Group, the CSR Promotion Committee has been established under the chairmanship of the vice president and representative director (head of global corporate functions) and with administrative support from the CSR Division. The Committee sets key performance indicators (KPI), communicates CSR information, and holds regular reviews of Fujitsu's business as well as new examples of our social contribution activities and the status of our business and a sustainable society.
Strengthening the Global CSR Governance Structure
From April, 2014, to promote and disseminate Fujitsu Group's global CSR activities, we have enhanced our governance structure. Specifically, we have established a "CSR Board Meeting" as a platform for the heads of five regions*2 to provide their opinions and discuss regional issues, policies and initiatives implemented by Liaison Delegates (LDs) as well as approximately 250 domestic and overseas Fujitsu Way leaders at each office Furthermore, the Fujitsu Group has newly established a "Way/CSR Global Community". This will be utilized as global communication platform, such as sharing information approved by the CSR Promotion Committee, promotion of CSR initiatives by individual themes in coordination with related departments, and sharing of good practices within the group. Through both top-down and bottom-up approaches, the Fujitsu Group will promote cross-regional CSR activities.
