Reducing Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions through ICT
Main Activities in FY 2018
Through the provision of ICT, the Fujitsu Group generates innovations that make energy usage and production activities more efficient and reduce the movement of people and things in a variety of fields in society, with the aim of helping to reduce GHG emissions. We believe that when large numbers of customers use ICT, it reduces GHG emissions for society as a whole while also leading to the sustainable growth of the Fujitsu Group. The Fujitsu Group is working to quantitatively visualize the degree to which its customers’ ICT usage contributes to GHG reductions, and to increase this amount, and is working to increase this amount. We recognized 22 new cases of environmentally conscious solutions in FY 2018, bringing the cumulative total to 539 and helping to reduce total CO2 emissions by 7.35 million tons.
Method to calculate contribution to GHG reduction
Fujitsu quantitatively assesses the effects of the environmental footprint reduction effects of our ICT implementations in terms of CO2 emission reductions, using an ICT solution environmental impact assessment method developed by Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. (at least 500 cases have been assessed to date). Contribution to GHG reduction is calculated in terms of annual reduction amount, using the basic units in the case being assessed plus either the number of users of the solution, the number of clients, or annual sales.
