Japanese technology giant Fujitsu has announced it has committed to sourcing 100 per cent of its electricity from renewable energy sources by 2050.

The company has joined RE100, a global initiative led by The Climate Group in partnership with CDP, that aims to have companies use 100 per cent renewable energy for the electricity they consume.

Fujitsu will expand its use of renewable energy with the goal of sourcing 100 per cent of the electricity consumed at the company’s locations, both in and outside of Japan, from renewable sources by 2050.

It has set an intermediate goal of 40 per cent renewable energy by 2030.

Fujitsu will also undertake research and development technology trials in areas such as energy management and storage, contributing to the spread of renewable energy throughout society.

Under the Fujitsu Climate and Energy Vision, a medium-to-long term environmental outlook set forth in May 2017, the Fujitsu Group aims to bring Fujitsu’s CO2 emissions down to zero by 2050.

“We are delighted to welcome Fujitsu to RE100,” RE100 head Sam Kimmins said.

“Their commitment comes at a crucial time, sending a clear message to the world that Japanese companies are committed, alongside their global peers, to using 100 per cent renewable power.”
