Fujitsu Establishes Corporate Social Responsibility Policy

Fujitsu Limited

Tokyo, December 16, 2010

Fujitsu today announced the establishment of a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy to enable the Fujitsu Group to contribute to the sustainable development of society and the planet. In implementing the new policy, the company has determined five priority issues around which it will focus its CSR practices. By addressing these issues, Fujitsu will promote socially responsible management as a global ICT(1) company.

Background

The Fujitsu Group has carried out CSR activities in accordance with the Fujitsu Way(2), a corporate philosophy which sets forth guiding principles and overarching values for employees. In addition, in December 2009 the company became a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact(3) as a way to enhance its CSR activities from a global perspective.

Both inside and outside of Japan, it is becoming increasingly important for companies to engage in CSR initiatives with a long-term perspective. In Japan, economic promotion organization Nippon Keidanren revised its Charter of Corporate Behavior in September 2010 to reflect changes in attitudes towards CSR. In November, ISO26000(4), the first international standard providing guidelines for social responsibility, was published. Furthermore, stakeholder demands regarding companies' CSR activities are becoming more diverse, and corporate CSR initiatives are expected to continue to grow in importance.

In response to these challenges, Fujitsu has established a CSR policy. The company has determined five priority issues around which it will focus its CSR practices, and will strengthen on a global basis its CSR activities as an integrated part of its business.

CSR Policy

CSR at Fujitsu is practiced by implementing the Fujitsu Way. In all its business activities, by implementing the Fujitsu Way in light of the expectations and needs of multiple stakeholders, the Fujitsu Group contributes to the sustainable development of society and the planet.

Fujitsu will focus on the following five priority issues in implementing its CSR practices. By pursuing these issues, Fujitsu will promote responsible management as a global ICT company.
