Fujitsu Group’s largest facility, Fujitsu’s Kawasaki main office in Japan, will source 100 per cent of its energy requirements from renewable energy from April 1, 2021. This will account for roughly 5 per cent of the company’s total electricity consumption in Japan. The company plans to implement this on a full scale at its locations throughout Japan.
The Fujitsu Group joined the “RE 100” In 2018. It aims to increase its use of renewable energy to 40 per cent or more by 2030 and 100 per cent by 2050 across its domestic and global facilities. Until now, the company’s focus on renewable energy adoption has been primarily in Europe and the United States as supply is abundant in these markets. However, the country is now expanding renewable energy procurement in its Japanese facilities as well.
RE 100 is an initiative run by The Climate Group in partnership with CDP, an international NGO. It is made up of companies aiming to use 100% renewable energy in their operations. 50 Japanese companies are already participating in this initiative as of March 10, 2021.
Fujitsu is a leading Japanese information and communication technology company which offers a full range of technology products, solutions and services. With a presence in more than 100 countries, Fujitsu Limited reported consolidated revenues of 3.9 trillion yen ($35 billion) for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2020.
