Fujitsu Group Environmental Action Plan (Stage VII) and Performance

Action Plan and Activity Targets for the Period FY 2013-2015

In April 2013, the Fujitsu Group newly formulated the Fujitsu Group Environmental Action Plan (Stage VII) for the period FY 2013-2015.

Our world faces many challenges relating to population growth. These include the security of supply of energy, other resources and food, climate change, the increasing frequency of natural disasters, and loss of biodiversity. These social and environmental issues are deeply interconnected, and cannot be managed in isolation. Society expects businesses to proactively take actions to address these challenges.

Through our business activities, Fujitsu endeavors to tackle these social and environmental challenges, by increasing the deployment of ICT sustainability solutions throughout society and developing new innovative technologies. As a leading ICT company, we will continue working together with our stakeholders in the global value chain including our customers, partners and suppliers to shape a sustainable and prosperous society. To achieve that, we have specified 17 concrete activity targets.

All the Targets in the Fujitsu Group Environmental Action Plan (Stage VII) Achieved

The Fujitsu Group successfully achieved all the targets in the Fujitsu Group Environmental Action Plan (Stage VII) over its duration of three years, including the items where hurdles were raised, such as “Contribution to Society by ICT: Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions”, “Design and Deliver Eco-efficient Products: Resource Efficiency” and “Efficient Supply Chain: Logistics”.
