Outline of New Environmental Protection Program(4th edition)

Items Targets Performance (fiscal 2006) Status
Strengthening Environmental Management To establish an EMS-based framework for environmental management across the entire Fujitsu Group by the end of fiscal 2005. We established environmental management frameworks in all Group companies, acquiring ISO14001 globally integrated certification including overseas locations at the end of 2005. Achieved
Green Procurement To increase the procurement ratio from suppliers who have implemented an environmental management system (EMS) to 100% by the end of fiscal 2006. We achieved the targeted 100% procurement ratio for all procured items for the whole Fujitsu Group. Achieved
Environmental Measures for Products All business units to provide Super Green Products (with top-class environmental characteristics) in their principal product line offerings by the end of fiscal 2006. All business units now provide Super Green Products. Achieved
All Fujitsu-brand products to be made free of Fujitsu-specified hazardous substances by the end of fiscal 2005. We started providing products free of Fujitsu Groupspecified hazardous substances in April 2006 (with certain exceptions*)
* These exceptions are:
  • Products such as certain medical equipment that is not subject to the RoHS directive and products for special systems in which reliability is seen as critical.
  • Products supplied to customer specifications
Product Recycling To establish recycling systems in Europe by the end of fiscal 2004, and in North America and Asia by the end of fiscal 2006. In Europe, we implemented recycling systems in conformance with local recycling regulations and completed operational preparations at our principal subsidiaries in North America and Asia. Achieved
To increase the reuse and recycling rate of collected end-of life products in Japan to 90% by the end of fiscal 2006. We achieved a reuse and recycling rate of 90% by the end of fiscal 2005 and maintained a 90% or better level in fiscal 2006. Achieved
To increase the utilization rate of recovered waste plastic for the Fujitsu Group in Japan to 20% by the end of fiscal 2006. With a recovered waste materials utilization rate of 18% at the end of fiscal 2006, this goal remains unmet. We will continue to work to identify recyclable materials. Not achieved

We are now supplying Environmentally Conscious Solutions in all areas (total: 82 products). Achieved
Global Warming Countermeasures To reduce CO2 emissions resulting from energy consumption down to or below the actual emission levels of fiscal 1990 by the end of fiscal 2010. (15% reduction from fiscal 2000 levels by end of fiscal 2006.) CO2 emissions due to energy consumption were about 1,149,000 tons. This corresponds to a 29% reduction from fiscal 2000 levels (6.1% higher than 1990 levels). Achieved
To reduce greenhouse gases other than CO2 by 10% from the actual fiscal 1995 emission levels by the end of fiscal 2010. Emissions made up of other greenhouse gasses (PFC, HFC, and SF6) were about 381,000 tons, a 47.1% increase compared to fiscal 1995 levels. Continuing
To contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gases by efficient physical distribution, product recycling, development of energy saving products, and other measures. We strengthened our environmental activities in our logistics divisions. Continuing
Promotion of Green Factories To reduce, by the end of fiscal 2006, the discharge of chemical substances that are subject to the Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (PRTR) by 15% compared to the actual fiscal 2001 discharge levels. Emissions of specified chemical substances were 47.3 tons, a decline of 53.0% compared with fiscal 2001. Achieved
