Tokyo, September 17, 2010

Fujitsu will host a forum for conference participants to highlight the Fujitsu Group's biodiversity-preservation efforts as well as a special show that combines magic with easy-to-understand biodiversity education. Additionally, during the conference Fujitsu will help promote private-sector initiatives for the preservation of biodiversity as part of its activities for the Business and Biodiversity Initiative, to which it became a signatory in May 2008.

In October 2009, the Fujitsu Group established its own biodiversity action principles, in which "contributing to the promotion of biodiversity throughout society" was listed as a priority measure.
