Raising Awareness through an In-House Award Scheme
The Environmental Contribution Award
To raise environmental awareness among employees at all Fujitsu Group companies, we have established an Environmental Contribution Award Scheme to recognize business and activities contributing to the environment. The award scheme is open to all employees and has been implemented every year since 1995.
In FY 2018 too, we received entries from various fields. Winning initiatives include technology for a blockchain-based exchange system for electricity, development of SMD-compatible micro all-solid battery, using AI technology to monitor threatened species with images taken by drones, a space observation system to accurately determine and forecast the risk of collision between artificial satellites and space debris, reducing wastes through a technology to recycle activated carbon filled in organic exhaust gas removal devices, and making gold medals for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games by recycling smartphones.

- Increasing comfort and energy-saving abilities of domestic appliances using Edge AI technology
We installed the AI system based on edge-cloud collaboration framework, a first in the air conditioner industry, developed by Fujitsu and Fujitsu Laboratories in the Nocria X-series of room air conditioners made by Fujitsu General Ltd. These room air conditioners automatically operate in a way that provides comfort tailored to each person, while saving more energy, using real-time control and high-level learning capabilities.
