Environment : Activities for Reducing Our Own Environmental Burdens Resource Circulation

Basic Approach

Water, essential for daily living, is at risk of depletion worldwide due to climate change, deforestation, and population growth. Although there is no process that uses significant quantities of water in the Fujitsu General Group's business activities, we are still making efforts to reduce water usage in our daily activities as much as possible.

In order to reduce the risk of depletion of resources, and to promote a sustainable society at large, we now regard waste as a valuable resource and pay the highest attention to its sorting, collection, and disposal.

Key Initiatives

Initiatives to Reduce Water Usage

The Fujitsu General Group is working to reduce water usage in its business activities by installing human sensors in the washbasins of toilets, recycling leaked water from lifting pumps, and making use of rainwater. In FY2022, we were able to reduce water consumption at our domestic office locations by 28% compared to FY 2013. We managed to reduce water usage per unit of production by 22% at domestic production sites and 17% at overseas production sites.

Initiatives to Reduce Waste Disposal

The Fujitsu General Group is making efforts to thoroughly sort, collect and dispose of waste in accordance with the waste disposal rules of each country and region, and is also making efforts to reduce the amount of waste as much as possible.

FGA (Thailand) Co., Ltd., our motor manufacturer in Thailand used to dispose of parts used in the initial setup of the molding machine that molds the winding assembly parts with unsaturated polyester resin (bulk molding compound, BMC). In order to reduce these disposed parts, by using winding assembly part samples for quality inspections (including destruction tests) that were discarded before, the amount of discarded parts could be reduced.

In FY2022, the amount of waste generated per unit of production reduction by 2% at overseas production sites and increased by 3% at domestic production sites compared to FY 2013.
