Fujitsu Group Environmental Action Plan

 

Operating Environment and Growth Strategy

Changing Environmental Activities in Line with Our Business Model Transformation

Originally a manufacturer of telecommunications equipment, Fujitsu developed into a global ICT enterprise with vertically integrated operations in three sectors: Technology Solutions offers a range of IT-based services and solutions, Ubiquitous Solutions designs and manufactures products such as PCs and mobile phones, and Device Solutions is responsible for developing the semiconductor business. Structural reforms undertaken since FY 2015 have channeled most management resources into the core sector of Technology Solutions. In FY 2019, Fujitsu repositioned itself as a Digital Transformation (DX) enterprise that aims to make full use of digital technologies in the creation of innovative services and business processes.

The nature of the Fujitsu Group’s environmental impact has changed as a result of this modified business model. As an example, most energy consumption in the past was linked to the manufacture of PCs and our semiconductor and electronic component operations, but that requirement is declining significantly. Conversely, the expansion of cloud computing and the Internet of Things (IoT) is driving increased power consumption in data centers, and this growing trend is expected to continue. We are therefore focusing at present on energy conservation, efficiency enhancements and the use of renewable energy in our data centers. In this way, the Fujitsu Group is implementing environmental activities that respond to the demands of society while also supporting the corporate growth strategy.

Operating as a Responsible Global Corporate Citizen

Recent years have seen a further ramping up of demand for initiatives aimed at building sustainable communities on a global scale, including the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the United Nations and the coming into effect of the COP 21 Paris Agreement. The Fujitsu Group employed a materiality analysis in a Groupwide review designed to enhance the effectiveness of activities that aim to contribute to sustainable development. This analysis identified six priority issues including the environment; human rights, diversity and inclusion; wellbeing; and supply chain. The result is a unified framework under the banner of Global Responsible Business (GRB), which will oversee activities that strengthen initiatives in non-financial areas while striving for ‘sustainability management’ worthy of a responsible global corporate citizen.

History of the Environmental Action Plan

Environmental Awareness Contributes to Sustainability for Our Customers and Society

The Fujitsu Group has formulated an Environmental Action Plan since 1993 and continues to broaden the scope of its environmental activities. Between stages I and V (FY 1993-2009) the objective was to significantly reduce the environmental impact of the Fujitsu Group itself. Far-reaching measures were implemented throughout our factories and offices to cut CO2 emissions and chemical pollutants, to reduce waste, and so on. In stage VI (FY 2010-2012), we expanded the focus of our activities to three important initiatives. In addition to strengthening measures to lessen our own impact on the environment, we supported similar efforts by customers and society as a whole and also took on the challenge of conserving biodiversity. Between stages VII and IX (FY 2013-2020), we clearly demonstrated our commitment to contributing to the resolution of environmental issues faced by customers and society through the use of ICT. In order to reduce our own environmental impact, we expanded the scope of our activities to cover the entire supply chain, including suppliers. In stage X (FY 2021-2022), we worked to promote and expand the use of renewable energy for our customers and society by utilizing leading-edge ICT technologies unique to the Fujitsu Group, such as the introduction of renewable energy at our business sites through CPPA and other means, and blockchain technology.

The Fujitsu Group will continue responding to the demands of changing times and will deepen and further develop its environmental activities with the goal of helping to create a sustainable and rewarding society.

Fujitsu Group Environmental Action Plan (Stage XI)

Social responsibility as a leading company in Sustainability Transformation (SX)

As a leading company in SX, Fujitsu Group is committed to reducing the environmental impact of its group companies, including those in the supply chain, and to expanding and enhancing the value it provides to customers and society through technology. We will work with our customers and partners to realize a sustainable future.

Outline of the Fujitsu Group Environmental Action Plan (Stage XI)

In order to resolve environmental and social issues, we have set eight targets in three global risks areas highlighted by the World Economic Forum: " Climate Change," " Resource Circulation," and " Living in Harmony with Nature ". These are mapped against the two values of " Customers and Society " and " Fujitsu and Supply Chain".

Fujitsu group is taking firm steps to realize its environmental vision, such as contributing to digital technology for customers and society and increasing the ratio of its own use of renewable energy.
(Reference:Global Risks Report 2023 )

  • Target period:
    3 years from Fiscal year 2023 to Fiscal year 2025

「Customers and Society」

Fujitsu aims to transform its core business with a portfolio of offerings focused on ESG Contribution and SX by 2030. In particular, to solve environmental issues in the areas of climate change and carbon neutrality, resource recycling through circular economies, and biodiversity, we will connect stakeholders from across society and industries and contribute to the SX of customers and people around the world. In FY 2023, we will develop environmental contribution metrics to measure our impact on the environment, allowing us to provide services with clear contributions and value. From FY 2024, we will measure and disclose the quantitative amount of our contribution. Furthermore, as an SX leader and to realize a sustainable society in which no one is left behind, we will develop solutions, services and initiatives that contribute to SX, deliver objective environmental metrics and earn the trust and recognition of global customers and society.

「Fujitsu and Supply Chain」

Climate Change

In order to achieve Net Zero (*1) emissions of greenhouse gases from our business activities and from the entire value chain, we set reduction targets for FY2025.
This will be achieved through the strategic introduction of renewable energy and the development of energy conservation through the use of advanced ICT. At the same time, we will also promote the understanding and reduction of the environmental impact of suppliers, as well as further energy saving of our products.

  • *1
    Net Zero Greenhouse Gas Emissions
    Reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 90% or more from the base year in the target year and remove residual emissions of 10% or less by directly recovering CO2 from the atmosphere (DAC) or by absorbing CO2 through planting trees.

Resource Circulation

We aim to develop these products and services in FY 2025 in order to design products that conserve resources and improve the resource recycling rate, and to build a circular economy business model that can overcome resource constraints. We will also continue to reduce water use and raise awareness of water resource conservation throughout the supply chain.

Living in Harmony with Nature

In order to achieve nature-positive results, we will implement activities to reduce negative impacts on biodiversity and increase positive impacts in the areas of our corporate activities, including supply chains, in response to the 2030 International Biodiversity Targets 15 of the Kunming-Montreal Framework.
