Integrated Report 2017
In both the global society and the digital society, the business conditions in which Fujitsu operates are evolving dramatically. Gaining an acute understanding of these changes that will enhance our sustainability as a company will more and more require us to listen, and to reflect, the voices of our stakeholders to our own efforts to transform our business. This section introduces an overview of our initiatives in this area.
Starting from the perspective of our customers and social development, we will create a cycle for enhancing capital strength both inside and outside the Company as we pursue sustainable growth.
People are Fujitsu’s most valuable asset. Our stance is to place importance on our employees, with each and every one being able to fulfill their potential. We seek to create a corporate environment where diverse opinions and values are respected and accepted, and people are motivated and engaged.
Through its global activities in the ICT industry, the Fujitsu Group continuously seeks to increase its corporate value and to benefit its customers, local communities, and all other stakeholders. We give high priority to assessing and responding appropriately to risks that threaten the achievement of our objectives, preventing materialization of these risks, and establishing measures to minimize the effect of materialized risks and prevent their recurrence. Moreover, we have built a Groupwide risk management and compliance system and are committed to its continuous implementation and improvement.
The Risk Management & Compliance Committee supervises compliance matters globally for the entire Fujitsu Group. The committee appoints a Chief Risk Compliance Offi cer who is tasked with executing policies and decisions concerning compliance, together with maintaining the Global Compliance Program (GCP) and coordinating with the Regional Risk Management & Compliance Committees.This works to raise awareness of our Fujitsu Way Code of Conduct, and to its adherence, throughout the Group.
Bearing in mind that ICT constitutes a fundamental part of the Fujitsu Group’s business, the Fujitsu Group maintains information security throughout the Group and also proactively strives to maintain and improve its customers’ information security through Fujitsu’s products and services, thereby contributing to the Fujitsu Way, our corporate philosophy that articulates a desire for “a network society that is rewarding and secure.”
CSR at Fujitsu is practiced by implementing the Fujitsu Way. In all its business activities, in applying the Fujitsu Way in light of the expectations and needs of multiple stakeholders, the Fujitsu Group contributes to the sustainable development of society and the planet. Our CSR initiatives focus on the five challenges below. In addressing these challenges, we demonstrate a commitment to responsible business operations as a global ICT company.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) can be viewed as a “master plan” for the world until 2030. Given its special qualities, ICT has the potential to make a positive impact on all 17 SDGs. The Fujitsu Group is leveraging the strengths of its unique ICT toward the advancement of initiatives that lead to the achievement of the SDGs, particularly those that relate closely to its businesses.
Aiming to reflect the opinions of diverse stakeholders in its business management, the Fujitsu Group regularly invites outside experts to participate in dialogues with its senior management team. Recently, we hosted a lively discussion that started with Fujitsu’s contributions to the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and also focused on the opportunities and risks that ICT companies should be aware of, the accomplishments that need to be made in terms of the Company’s global management, and how best to tie these into the Company’s business strategies for sustainable growth.
