Environment : Activities for reducing our own environmental burdens Resource circulation
Water, a source of life and 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 promoting 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 sustainability of society at large, we now regard waste as a valuable resource and pay the highest attention to its sorting, collection, and disposal.
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 FY2019, we managed to reduce water usage per unit of production by 12% at domestic production sites and by 11% at overseas production sites, as compared with FY2013. In order to further reduce water usage we are studying measures to reuse the blowdown water of the cooling tower used during air conditioner development tests.
Initiatives to Reduce Waste Disposal
The Fujitsu General Group ensures that all waste is sorted, collected and disposed of in accordance with the waste disposal regulations in each country and region.
In FY2019 we reduced waste generation per unit of production by 2% at our overseas production sites as compared to FY2013, while our domestic production sites waste generation increased by 19% due to higher production volumes.
