Fujitsu Selected as CDP Supplier Engagement Leader

TOKYO, Mar 29, 2024 - (JCN Newswire) - Fujitsu Limited today announced that the Fujitsu Group has been selected as a Supplier Engagement Leader in the 2023 CDP (1) Supplier Engagement Rating for its proactive engagement with its suppliers to address greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and climate change strategies.

CDP’s Supplier Engagement Rating evaluates corporate supply chain engagement based on organizations’ responses to questions in four areas of the CDP climate change questionnaire: governance, targets, Scope 3 emissions and value chain engagement.

Fujitsu has been selected for the CDP's A List for climate change for seven years in a row, earning the highest rating in the CDP's evaluation of corporate activities in response to climate change.

The Fujitsu Group’s efforts to reduce CO2 emissions in the supply chain

- SBTi certification for Net-Zero targets
In 2017, The Fujitsu Group laid out its medium- to long-term environmental vision, the Fujitsu Climate and Energy Vision, and in June 2023 updated this vision and established new targets to achieve carbon neutrality in its business by fiscal 2030 (2) and net zero greenhouse gas emissions (3) across the Fujitsu Group’s value chain by fiscal 2040. Fujitsu obtained SBTi (4) certification for its Net-Zero targets.

- Reduction of CO2 emissions in the upstream supply chainThe Fujitsu Group is further promoting CO2 emission reduction activities for its major suppliers. In fiscal 2016, the Fujitsu Group has included efforts for secondary suppliers and requested them to set targets in line with the SBT (5). Fujitsu is supporting its suppliers’ activities by providing simple tools for visualizing CO2 emissions (Scope 1 and 2) in their business and determining compliance with SBT level targets.

- Contribution to visualization of CO2 emissions throughout the supply chainFujitsu succeeded in visualizing CO2 emissions throughout its supply chain through participation in the World Business Council for Sustainable Development’s (WBCSD) (6) Partnership for Carbon Transparency (PACT) (7)Implementation program, the world’s first social implementation program to enable business-to-business data integration for product carbon footprint (PCF) information.

Through these efforts, the Fujitsu Group will continue to contribute to the realization of a carbon-neutral society.
