Growing Challenges and Changing Course
The world's population has increased dramatically over the past several decades, presenting both great opportunities as well as a host of increasingly complex challenges, including widening socioeconomic disparities and the growing threat of environmental disasters exacerbated by climate change. At the same time, in the past year the global COVID -19 pandemic has laid bare divisions and inequalities across the world, posing fundamental questions about people's values and lifestyles, as well as previously unforeseen challenges that threaten the future of humanity and earth. Overcoming these calls for leaders to break from the past and chart a bold new course toward a brighter future in which innovation lights the way.
Acknowledging the importance of this pivotal moment, Fujitsu established its new purpose in 2020, taking a new path to transform into a business based on the ideal vision of society to realize a more sustainable world. As it envisions the problems that it anticipates will arise in 2030, Fujitsu has identified seven key focus areas to form the basis of Fujitsu Uvance.
