In 2018, the Fujitsu Group joined the international RE 100 initiative with a goal of 40% or more of renewable energy by 2030 and 100% by 2050. Fujitsu is now shifting to renewable energies mainly in Europe and the United States, where they are abundant. Expanding the use of renewable energy sources in Japan is more difficult.
However, the largest Fujitsu Group facility, the Fujitsu Kawasaki headquarters, is about to become a prime example of success along the way. According to the Japanese IT and telecommunications giant, starting April 1, 2021, the office’s needs will be fully covered by renewable energy sources.
It remains to add that RE 100 (Renewable Energy 100) is an initiative of The Climate Group, an international non-governmental organization. It involves companies seeking to use electricity only from renewable energy sources. The initiative has already been supported by 295 companies, including 50 Japanese ones.
