Fujitsu announced a new company-wide initiative dedicated to make greener products in a greener fashion, reports Fox Business. As part of the initiative, called Pervasive Green, Fujitsu established an environmental management system to cut waste and prevent pollution at two of its largest facilities in California and New York.
It also aims to reduce more than 7 million tons of CO2 emissions across all Fujitsu Ltd. companies from fiscal 2007 to 2010 and has established a program to abolish specific hazardous substances.Among some of the green innovations for its customers, it has modified its U-Scan self-checkout system to support initiatives that eliminate the use of plastic bags and support customers that use reusable bags.
The company also offers customers a used IT product take-back service that covers servers, storage systems, legacy systems and other IT products for retailers.
Last fall, Fujitsu vowed to be the first IT vendor to completely move to energy-efficient products.
