We abide by a strict code of conduct, ensuring we operate fairly and ethically within all areas of our business and our supply chain. We are proud that responsible business forms part of our core strategy and vision, and that as an organisation we are committed to winning the right way.

At Fujitsu, Responsible Business is firmly anchored in our Corporate Philosophy. Responsible Business means delivering great results to our customers and fostering good practice throughout our supply chain.
Fujitsu’s Responsible Procurement Agenda resides within our One Global Procurement Function and has defined leads to drive and take responsibility for the initiatives that sit within it. We operate within the boundaries of our governance processes, ensuring we operate fairly, transparently and ethically. The agenda has the full support of Fujitsu’s Leadership Team.
Fujitsu’s Responsible Procurement Agenda ensures that the way in which Fujitsu procures goods and services is transparent, ethical and fair. We have a responsibility to ensure that we fulfil our moral duties and in turn, so does our supply chain. We also work to ensure that the engagement we have with our suppliers allows them to compete for business on an equal basis; whether they are Micro or Global sized businesses. Our Responsible Procurement Agenda involves:
- An award winning SME Engagement Programme, which includes improved access channels to Fujitsu for SMEs and exciting opportunities for SMEs to work with Fujitsu to develop new ideas which will change the landscape of the solutions we provide.
- The Responsible Procurement Charter, which outlines our expectations of the Fujitsu supply chain. The document includes clauses which cover Labour, Health & Safety, Environment and Ethics.
