Mid/Long-term Environmental Vision "FUJITSU Climate and Energy Vision"
The Fujitsu Group has established the "FUJITSU Climate and Energy Vision", a medium- to long-term environmental vision through 2050, with the goal of bringing the Fujitsu Group's CO2 emissions to zero, and achieving a decarbonized society, as well as contributing to the response to climate change, through technology supporting digital transformation.
Approval by Science Based Targets initiative
In August 2017, the reduction targets of greenhouse gas (hereafter, GHG) emissions from its business facilities and a part of value chain, set by Fujitsu Group, was approved by Science Based Targets Initiative as being at science based level. An initiative was established in 2015 jointly by a number of organizations, including the World Resources Institute and UN Global Compact. It encourages companies to set goals for reducing greenhouse gas emissions based on scientific evidence, in order to limit the global temperature increase to less than 2°C over pre-industrial revolution temperatures.
- To reduce absolute Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions 33% by 2030 and 80% by 2050, from a 2013 base-year.
- To reduce Scope 3 GHG emissions 30% by 2030 from a 2013 base year. The scope 3 reductions cover "purchased goods and services" and "the use of sold products".
Joining of RE100 as Gold Member
In July 2018, Fujitsu joined RE100, which strives to significantly expand the adoption of renewable electricity on a global scale, as Japan's first Gold Member. RE100 is an international initiative led by The Climate Group in partnership with CDP and consists of companies committed to source 100 % of the electricity they use from renewable sources.
Fujitsu Group will consider the appropriate steps for each region and expand its procurement of electricity from renewable sources at locations in Japan and around the world, starting with datacenters outside of Japan. Fujitsu Group will concurrently continue its work on R&D and technology trials for energy management and storage, and contribute to the spread of renewable energy in society as whole.
