Environment ： Activities for reducing our own environmental burdensBiodiversity conservation
Recognizing that corporate activities benefit from the riches of the Earth's biodiversity while at the same time impacting it, the Fujitsu General Group will work to conserve biodiversity and utilize natural resources in a sustainable manner.
Fujitsu General Group Biodiversity Action Principles
In order to specifically tackle biodiversity under the Fujitsu Group common philosophy, we rearranged the "Fujitsu Group Biodiversity Conduct Guidelines" of Fujitsu Limited for Fujitsu General and formulated the "Fujitsu General Biodiversity Action Principles" in 2012.
Fujitsu General Group is working on the conservation of a sustainable natural environment through afforestation and Satoyama (Village) activities. As an event of "World Environmental Day”, FGA (THAILAND) CO., LTD. carried out afforestation activities around the office and participated in the mangrove conservation project implemented on the nearby river.

Water resource conservation activities
Fujitsu General Group participates in regional activities to conserve the water resources around our business sites. FGA (THAILAND) CO., LTD. participated in the “Environmental Quality Monitoring Project” organized by Thailand Industrial Estate Corporation and carried out the garbage collection in the nearby residential area and coast aiming to restore marine coastal resources and enhance the awareness of conservation.
Also, Matsubara Business Office participated in the “Yamato River/Ishikawa Clean Operation” organized by the River Environment Division of Osaka Prefecture. The number of participants is increasing year by year, and 20 people including employees, their families and business partners participated in the activity this time and collected garbage such as plastic pieces and empty cans. The water quality is improving and trout have been moving up to this river since several years ago.
