Responsible Business is embedded in our DNA at Fujitsu and I am thrilled to announce that Fujitsu Ireland have joined the Business in the Community Ireland (BITCI) Leaders’ Group on Sustainability, a business coalition dedicated to addressing the most pressing sustainability priorities as well as identifying future opportunities.
Fujitsu Ireland is one of 26 leading Irish businesses convened by Business in the Community Ireland (BITCI), the national network for sustainability, representing a combined workforce of over 90,000 people in Ireland, to work collaboratively to address social, environmental and economic priorities.
We are delighted to be part of this initiative and see first-hand the commitment of the group to the Low Carbon Pledge the first dedicated pledge generated by Irish businesses to set industry standards on sustainability and reduce carbon usage.
As part of the pledge, our shared commitment at Fujitsu Ireland is to reduce fuel consumption by the company and greenhouse gas emission intensity by 50% by 2030. If we are going to reach the global carbon reduction targets set in the Paris Agreement and maintain global temperatures at less than 2oC below pre-industrial levels, then we, along with our 25 co-signatures of the pledge must play a major role to practically demonstrate Irish business’ commitment to reducing carbon emissions and to act as a catalyst for wider, complementary initiatives and actions.
The Low Carbon Pledge is a great opportunity for our team to come together, share learnings and showcase best practice. I look forward to collaborating with a coalition of Ireland’s leading organisations that are striving to improve the sustainability of the Irish business sector and to demonstrate our commitment to addressing the most pressing sustainability priorities for the Irish business sector.
Responsible business is a moral obligation – it’s the right thing to do. As an international business Fujitsu plays a huge part in the growth of several economies, and we want to make sure we’re doing it in the right way. We want to make our business sustainable, whilst also having a positive impact on society.
