dWeb.News Article from Daniel Webster dWeb.News


TOKYO, Dec 24, 2021 – (JCN Newswire) – Fujitsu Limited and Ridgelinez Limited (Ridgelinez) today announced a new strategy to strengthen cooperation and deliver services that contribute to the resolution of environmental issues as set out in the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The two companies will provide new services to support customers in Japan in reaching their sustainability goals. These services include the formulation of management strategies and the implementation of SDG-related measures. This includes both consulting services to help customers in the Japanese market in realizing their Sustainability Transformation (SX) starting from January 2022, and services to measure and visualize CO2 emissions in customers’ supply chains starting from December 24, 2021. In the future, services will be offered to visualize and measure customers’ CO2 emissions for the global market. Ridgelinez, a Fujitsu Limited subsidiary offering consulting and DX services to customers, will provide the consulting services. This will include support in integrating ESG(1) in sustainable management strategies, as well as in realizing carbon neutrality, with the goal of zero CO2 emissions. Fujitsu has been visualizing CO2 emissions of its Group (including its supply chain) and has established concrete targets to reduce CO2 emissions using the SBT(2). Fujitsu has also been promoting active introduction and management of renewable energies via international initiatives like RE100(3) and the acquisition of the EPEAT(4) eco label. Fujitsu will use this knowledge to provide tools to enable customers to reduce CO2 emissions and visualize, disclose, as well as indirect CO2 emissions.

This latest offering demonstrates how the Fujitsu Group will continue to promote “Sustainable Manufacturing,” accelerating the creation of secure and resilient supply chains and a circular economy to achieve carbon neutrality and to support growth that contributes to the harmonious coexistence of people and the earth. Fujitsu’s commitment towards Sustainable Manufacturing is one of seven Key Focus Areas that it has established under the Uvance brand.

About the New Service

(1) Consulting services to realize SX in customers’ businesses
Ridgelinez will provide SX consulting services, including:

– Support for customers in the formulation of sustainable management strategies to resolve ESG related issues
– Support in bringing customers’ CO2 emissions to zero in order to achieve carbon neutrality
– Sustainable governance / finance support to assist customers in disclosing information to investors and other relevant parties

In order to provide these services, Ridgelinez will strengthen its internal structure by establishing “Sustainability Transformation Practice” as a new organization including talent highly specialized in the area of carbon neutrality (including renewable energies and bio technologies) in January 2022, and plans to gradually expand its staff.

Looking forward, Ridgelinez further also aims to build new channels of communication to share sustainability related news to partners and organizations outside of Japan in a speedy manner with the aim to contribute to comprehensive SX.

(2) Cloud services for visualization of CO2 emissions in customers’ supply chains

– Cloud-based services to collect and visualize data on fuel and electricity consumption at each plant and facility as well as CO2 emissions generated in customers’ supply chains including product manufacturing and transportation.

Customers can use templates to edit graphs to show CO2 emissions by country or region.
– Customers can combine this system with a service that collects data on energy consumption per manufacturing process and plant. This allows them to more efficiently aggregate data and provides greater traceability for their businesses.
