Environment : Environmental Management Environmental Management

Framework of Environmental Management

The Fujitsu General Group established "Company-wide Akasuri Committee” chaired by the president as forum for solving crossorganizational issues related to environmental management and furthermore, "Environmental Promotion Committee” chaired by the general manager of the Office of CSR Promotion as a forum for discussing individual organizational environmental issues.

In addition, Fujitsu General Group is promoting environmental management by establishing the environmental management system based on the International Standard ISO14001. Within the group, domestic and overseas sales group companies acquired an integrated certification by the third parties and the group is promoting the environmental management in unity. Meanwhile, overseas manufacturing group companies established the environmental management system at each company (factory). We are promoting the environmental management by acquiring the third party certification.

Construction and operation of environmental management system

The Environmental Management System (EMS) of Fujitsu General Group consists of the integrated certification which our company, domestic group companies and overseas sales companies acquired jointly and individual certifications of five overseas production companies which acquired the international standard ISO14001 independently. In any case, "significant environmental aspects”, "compliance obligations” and "risks and opportunities” related to the activities of each organization are identified, and taking those factors into consideration, we establish environmental goals and formulate action plan for activities. We regularly evaluate whether the goals are achieved or not as a result of implementing the activities.

In FY2018, as the transition to ISO14001:2015 was completed in FY2017, we deepened the understanding for the new standards at each related class and worked on the activities to reduce environmental impact and responded to the environmental issues efficiently and effectively.

Also, regarding the matters which were pointed out as nonconforming as a result of external audit and internal audit of EMS, we have completed corrective actions and as for the matters which were pointed out as to be observed and improved, we are striving to improve the management level by clarifying the points to be reviewed.

Implementation of internal audit and results

The ISO14001:2015 requires contributing to environmental consideration and environmental protection through the primary operations of company.

In the internal audit of FY2018, the second year since the introduction of ISO14001:2015, we implemented the auditing focusing on whether the top management is tackling the environmental activities with leadership after understanding the status of each organization required by this Standard and whether they understand and observe the necessary legal compliance matters. As a result, some "nonconformities” related to compliance obligation (laws and regulations) were pointed out but corrective measures were completed for all matters.

Implementation of external audit and results

From August to September 2018, the first year surveillance audit was held based on ISO14001:2015 for our company, domestic group companies and overseas sales companies which is subject to the integrated certification. As a result, "nonconformities” related to the compliance obligation (legal regulations) were pointed out at overseas sales subsidiaries. Regarding the indicated matters including the "nonconformities” related to other environmental risk, the relevant audit division and ISO secretary office took corrective measures in cooperation and are maintaining the certification. Furthermore, we notified to relevant departments for the cross-organizational understanding.

Also, at the five overseas production companies which are independently certified, first year surveillance audit was held according to each individual schedule and certified.
