The company established the Fujitsu Asia Pacific Scholarship Program (FAPSP) in 1985 as a vanguard of Fujitsu's activities to contribute to the international community. In this program, Fujitsu offers scholarships to Asians who want to obtain a Japanese MBA. The scholarships are offered through the Japan-focused Executive MBA (JEMBA) joint program between JAIMS and the University of Hawaii.JAIMS is a non-profit educational institute that Fujitsu established in 1972. Asian students study the American and Japanese cultures and their different approaches to management. They also learn about different value systems, which broadens their world view, nurtures truly cross-cultural human resources and promotes mutual understanding in the Pacific Rim. More than 100 graduates are now working for corporate and social-service activities in their home countries as well as in other nations. FAPSP celebrates its 10th anniversary in 1995, and we are proud that the program is steadily bearing fruit.
To preserve the global environment, Fujitsu developed Perclean, a powerful alternative
cleaning solvent. Perclean allowed us to completely abandon 1-1-1 trichloroethane, which
is destructive to the ozone layer. Perclean is now applied to high-density printed-circuit
boards for large-scale computers, an application for which few alternative cleaning solvents
had previously been found. Fujitsu has quicly achieved the complete abandonment of
ozone-depleting substances, including particular CFCs. Additionally, the company has developed
an environment management system that satisfies the requirements of the ISO World Standard
Environment Management System, which will take effect in 1996. Fujitsu is presently checking
that its system conforms to the ISO standard. The company is also helping affiliates and
subsidiaries introduce the ISO-compliant system in a combined effort by the entire Fujitsu
Group to improve the environment.
