Environmental Efforts & Protections by Fujitsu
Together, we can keep our planet green and clean
For more than a decade, Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc. (FCPA) has made a significant, sustainable investment in enterprise-wide initiatives, from reducing our carbon footprint, to eliminating lead and other harmful wastes from our supply chain and products, to broad recycling and reuse programs and reforestation projects. We continue to invest in innovation and programs that are good for both the environment and our business.
Fujitsu has become the first company in Silicon Valley to install a hydrogen power fuel cell. This revolutionary technology will generate 50% of the power needed to cool the servers in our data centers and computer labs at our Sunnyvale, CA campus, and will pay for itself in 3.5 years. It meets the most stringent air emissions standards set by the California Air Resources Board and produces 35% less CO2 per megawatt-hour than the average fossil fuel-based power plant.
In addition, while observing all environmental regulations in our business operations, we are actively pursuing environmental protection activities on our own initiative. Through our individual and collective actions, we will continuously strive to safeguard a rich natural environment for future generations.

What is RoHS?
RoHS is the acronym for Restriction of Hazardous Substances. RoHS originated in the European Union and restricts the use of specific hazardous materials found in electrical and electronic products. All applicable products in the EU market after July 1, 2006 must pass RoHS compliance. What are the restricted materials mandated under RoHS? The substances banned under RoHS are lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (CrVI), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE). Why is RoHS compliance important? The restricted materials are hazardous to the environment and pollute landfills, and are dangerous in terms of occupational exposure during manufacturing and recycling.
