FUJITSU TEN Group Establishes "Sixth Environmental Measures Plan"
- Strengthening of Environmentally Friendly Design with Development of Super-Green Products -

June 8, 2010

FUJITSU TEN (Kobe City, Hyogo, Japan; President & Representative Director: Keijiro Katsumaru; Capital: ¥5.3 billion) has introduced the "Sixth Environmental Measures Plan" that establishes activities over the three-year period from FY 2010 to FY 2012.

The "Sixth Environmental Measures Plan" specifies 15 concrete action goals arranged under the main themes of "Green Products", "Green Procurement/Green Distribution", "Green Factories/Offices", "Environmental Management", and "Social Contribution Activities" (see the table on page 2). The plan is aimed at achieving the "Contributions to the Global Environment" put forth in "VISION 2012" that establishes the overall goals that the whole group aims to achieve by the fiscal year 2012.

⚫Higher Targets than Previously Established for "Reduction of Chemical Substances Used" and "Implementation of Activities to Preserve Biodiversity".

In recent year, environmental issues related to the business world, such as unforeseen climate changes and the biodiversity crisis, have grown increasingly larger.
In order to support the resolution of such issues, the FUJITSU TEN Group is committed to not only our "Compliance-Focused Activities" but also to "One Step Ahead Activities".

The "Sixth Environmental Measures Plan" lays out higher goals than previously established through measures such as "Development of Super Green Products based to the New Standards", "Reduction of Chemical Substances Used", and "Implementation of Activities to Preserve Biodiversity" that correspond to social trends and expectations.

Criteria for environmentally friendly design and similar aspects have been newly established with consideration given to the concepts of on-vehicle characteristics (such as effects on gas mileage). Additionally, measures were added in relation to "Construction of ISO 14001/OHSAS 18001*1 Global Integrated/Unified Management System" and "Introduction of MFCA (Material Flow Cost Accounting)*2" in order to promote more effective environmental management.

The FUJITSU TEN Group is utilizing a globally unified environmental management structure and all employees are united together in implementing measures for global environmental conservation in order to fulfill our responsibilities to society.

Theme Scope of Measures Action Targets
Green Products Global Develop Super Green products with new criteria to reach 25% by the end of FY 2012.
Global Improve environmental efficiency factor*3 by 1.7 by the end of FY 2012. (Base: compared to FY 2008 model)

Japan Achieve 100% usage of newly contracted eco-cars.
Japan Reduce CO2 emissions related to product transport each year at a rate of 3% less than the previous year.
Green FactoriesGreen Offices Global Reduce CO2 emissions (in relation to production yield) by 4.1% in comparison with FY 2009 by the end of FY 2012.
Global Reduce use of substances (lead, toluene, xylene and silver) listed in the PRTR*4 (in relation to production yield) by 32% in comparison with FY 2009 by the end of FY 2012.
Japan Reduce substances used that are covered by VOC*5 emission regulations by 47% in comparison with FY 2000 by the end of FY 2012.
Global Reduce waste output (in relation to production yield) by 3% in comparison with FY 2009 by the end of FY 2012.
Global Achieve zero emission at four overseas production bases by the end of FY 2012.
Environmental Management Global Implement performance evaluation of environmental management based on ISO 14001 in conjunction with implementation of environmental improvement activities based on actual business activities at all group companies by the end of FY 2010.
Global Construct ISO 14001/OHSAS 18001 Global Integrated/Unified Management System by the end of FY 2012*6.

Social Contributions Global Perform environmental contribution activities (such as local clean-up activities and contributions to environmental groups) once a year or more at all bases from FY 2010.
Global Perform biodiversity protection activities (such as tree planting and education related to biodiversity) at all group company bases by FY 2012.

*1:OHSAS18001:Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series
Standards established by an international consortium in order to provide a list of risk countermeasures, clarify locations of responsibility, and similar items in relation to occupational safety and health.

*2:MFCA: Material Flow Cost Accounting
A form of environmental accounting that provides comprehensive cost evaluation by focusing on the materials and energy lost in the production process, and treating the materials, processing, equipment depreciation and similar costs related to such loss as "negative product costs".

*3:Environmental efficiency factor
The quantification of improvements to product environmental impact and value (function/performance) as derived from a comparison of new products to prior ones. An environmental index in order to promote products that provide higher value by having a lesser environmental impact.

*4:PRTR:Pollutant Release and Transfer Register
Companies that utilize chemical substances emit waste created by operations such as those of factories into the environment must process such waste. This is a general system for public divulgation involving the ascertainment of amounts of chemical materials treated, reporting this to the national and local governments and collating data of governmental reports.

*5:VOC:Volatile Organic Compounds
Volatile organic compounds that can cause sick-building syndrome (isopropyl alcohol, toluene, xylene and others).

*6:Global integrated certification for ISO 14001 at bases with 10 or more employees. Plan for integrated certification at new bases within two years from being established. Acquire integrated certification for OHSAS 18001 for all production bases including foreign ones. Risk assessment will be introduced and basic safety activities will be thoroughly implemented at other non-production bases.
