Here comes an update on Fujitsu’s Green ICT Initiatives highlighted along Cop15 (the UN Climate Change Conference) taking place now in Copenhagn.
Last Thursday, at an IDC press conference, Atsuhisa Takahashi, President of Fujitsu’s Corporate Environmental Affairs Unit, presented Fujitsu Group’s challenge to Climate Change. Fujitsu has sponsored the IDC research project to determine the role of ICT in enhancing environmental sustainability, and the finding of this research was released at the conference. The research revealed that intense use of ICT technologies has potential to reduce carbon emissions by over 25% annually by 2020 compared with 2006 levels in the G20 countries. Among the G20 nations, Japan is ranked first for the ability to use ICT to reduce carbon emissions in the report.
Mr. Takahashi explained Fujitsu’s Green Policy Innovation – a holistic umbrella concept covering our Green DNA, the environmental load contribution “OF IT” (IT infrastructure itself, energy-efficient products) as well as “BY IT” (IT solutions and outsourcing services).
Fujitsu is going to expand its green IT initiative globally, with the aim of achieving a cumulative reduction in worldwide CO2 emissions of more than 15 million tons over the four-year period from fiscal 2009 through fiscal 2012.
Green Policy Innovation will assist customers and society as a whole in reducing their environmental footprint, and mark a significant step to support the creation of a prosperous, low-carbon society.
