Expand the Use of Renewable Energy

Our Approach

The popularization and widespread use of renewable energy is becoming increasingly necessary as a way of addressing global warming, securing stable energy supplies through the diversification of our energy sources, and as an energy-based foundation for economic growth.

The Fujitsu Group has established an environmental vision aimed at realizing a decarbonized society. The main pillars for this vision are a dedication to energy conservation, and the active implementation of renewable energy. To achieve this vision, we have set quantitative targets under the Environmental Action Plan, and are actively promoting the introduction and installation of solar power generation equipment at our business sites, as well as the purchase, use, and expansion of green power (electric power generated through 100% renewable energy).

FY 2019 Performance

Targets under the Fujitsu Group Environmental Action Plan (Stage IX)FY 2019 Performance
Expand the amount of renewable energy used by 20% or more in comparison to FY 2017Renewable energy use grew by 19.6%

Environmental Action Plan (Stage IX) Initiatives

With the aim of achieving the Fujitsu Group’s medium-term environmental goal of “using more than 40% renewable energy in FY 2030), we set a FY 2020 target under the Fujitsu Group Environmental Action Plan (Stage IX) of expanding the amount of renewable energy we use by 20% or more in comparison to FY 2017. In FY 2019, through the purchase of green power and power generation through solar panels, our renewable energy use grew by 19.6% in comparison to FY 2017.

We will continue to work toward the implementation of renewable energy in both our domestic and overseas business offices, in order to further our purchase and usage of renewable energy.

Change in Growth of Renewable Energy Use

Renewable Energy Procurement Principle

Mandatory Requirement

  • Renewable energy that can be reported through RE 100 activities
    • Power sources are Solar、Wind-power、Geothermal、Biogas、Small-hydro etc.
    • Environmental value (renewable attribute) can be pursued and verified
    • No double counting of environmental value
      Ex.)Amortization of environmental value of renewable energy, to be executed through the system of public agency

Recommended Requirement

  • The electric power, in which power consumption to be combined with environmental value
    • The electric power, in which grid power and environmental value certification to be one set (The renewable energy to be generated in the same grid)
    • Power balancing to be managed. In time of emergence, minimum gap of power consumption and environmental value to be generated ( within one year etc.)
  • To select the renewable energy, by which we can contribute to local society
    • For example, by selecting the renewable energy in the same area as grid consumption, we can make “Local generation for local consumption” possible.
      Or to support the power generation company which makes effort to enlarge renewable energy power
  • To procure the power from relatively new sites, in order to contribute the enlargement of renewable energy (Additionality)
    • To promote new project conjuncture, then to procure the power from it, we can contribute to increase the capacity of renewable energy of whole society
  • To procure from the power generation site which was developed and constructed with the agreement of local society
    • To avoid making significant impact to the environment or society in which the power generation site is located

Examples of Initiatives in FY 2019

Introduction of Solar Panels

At Fujitsu Consulting India (FCI) Private Limited in India, we introduced solar panels with an electric power generation capacity of 350kW, in order to reduce electricity use and control peak electricity. The panels began generating electricity from January 2019.
