Fujitsu sets a goal in its Stage VI Fujitsu Group Environmental Protection Program to reduce total GHG emissions associated with manufacturing globally to 6% below FY1990 levels by the end of FY2012. To score more points it needs to increase the ambition of its absolute emission reductions.
Fujitsu has set a goal of increasing its modest renewable energy usage to three times FY2007 levels by end of FY2012. To score more points in this criterion, Fujitsu needs to showcase a more comprehensive strategy for operational footprint via efficiency measures, as well as increased clean energy purchasing, including the direct purchase of renewables.
Fujitsu has developed a framework for configuring an environmentally-friendly data center that goes beyond electricity usage efficiency to also focus on clean energy sourcing for its data centers; the company has a data center in California powered by fuel cells. Fujitsu needs to showcase how this framework influences the siting of its infrastructure.
Supply Chain Footprint
Fujitsu reports that all of its notebook, tablet and desktop PCs released globally meet the latest EnergyStar standards. The company reports and verifies CO2 and other GHG emissions from raw materials, manufacturing, distribution and usage for fiscal 2008. To score more points Fujitsu should showcase what percentage of its models exceed the EnergyStar standards (and by how much), report and set reduction targets for GHG emissions from its external supply chain.
