Environment : Environmental ManagementGreen Procurement

The Fujitsu General Group aims to create products that enrich the quality of life while remaining conscious of the need to protect the global environment. To this end, we are carrying out eco-friendly activities from the process of material procurement together with our suppliers.

Procurement Activities Based on Green Procurement Standards

The Fujitsu General Group is promoting green procurement activities in cooperation with Fujitsu Group companies. We support procurement from those suppliers who meet our requirements of green procurement based on the "Fujitsu Group Green Procurement Standards" shared within the Fujitsu Group. We also monitor the environmental management systems, CO2 emission reduction, water resource conservation, and biodiversity conservation efforts of our suppliers through conducting the Fujitsu Group's common environmental survey while encouraging our suppliers to promote eco-friendly initiatives.

Green Procurement Requirements for Suppliers

Green Procurement Requirements for Suppliers

The Fujitsu General Group requests its suppliers to establish an environmental management system (EMS) in order to continuously improve and support environmental conservation activities. We classify our suppliers' environmental management systems according to their level of establishment. The EMS of our suppliers is classified by the level of establishment, and in principle, Level 3 (acquisition of third-party certification such as ISO 14001) is required, but we also work with level 1 and 2 suppliers to help them in the development and operation of their EMS.

Obtaining Information on Chemical Substances Contained in Products

At the Fujitsu General Group, in order to prevent the inclusion of hazardous chemical substances in products and materials, we ask suppliers to provide us with information on chemical substances contained in parts and materials. The information transmission method is in accordance with "chemSHERPA(Note3)", which is the industry standard scheme. We also hold explanatory meetings with suppliers in China, Thailand, and other countries in advance for their cooperation.
The obtained information on chemical substances contained in products is managed by the Intranet and shared within the Group.
