Green and Super Green Products
The Fujitsu Group has established its Procedure for Product Environmental Green Assessment to further the development of environmentally conscious products. Green Product Evaluation Standards are reviewed and updated accordingly to strengthen and improve the efficiency of our Green Product development.
To pursue the design of environmentally conscious products at a global level, we comply with the international IEC 62075 standard*1 and our own Eco Design Standard*2, which we established in 2011 to incorporate environmental and other market demands. Fujitsu PCs and servers are designed in Japan and Europe, based on these standards, and sold globally.
"Super Green Products" are those that meet the required conditions for Green Products and are also top-class in terms of low energy consumption and/or 3R design technology, non-use of hazardous substances, packaging materials and use of eco-friendly materials and technologies. We evaluate and certify products or systems having environmental characteristics superior to those of others we supply or that are available on the market as "Super Green Products."
*1 IEC 62075:
Standard on "Audio/video, information and communication technology equipment-Environmentally conscious design." This standard was published in 2008 and established as JIS C 9914 in 2010 in Japan.
*2 Covered products:
Personal computers, servers, and storage systems.
ICT Database System for Management of the Environmentally Conscious Product Design
We use ICT systems for the preparation and registration of Product Environmental Green Assessments and LCAs. We use these systems to centrally manage information on aspects of environmentally conscious design related to legal and regulatory compliance; materials and chemical content of purchased components; efforts to make products smaller, lighter, or more energy efficient; ease of recycling and dismantling.
