Keywords:environmental goal 

Fujitsu Ltd has become a Contributor Member of The Green Grid, the first Japanese company to take a leadership role in the global consortium dedicated to advancing energy efficiency in data centers and business computing ecosystems.

The membership will help to promote Fujitsu's initiatives to improve the energy efficiency of its data centers and its server and storage products as well as support the company's overall environmental goal of preventing global warming through the reduction of IT-generated CO2 emissions.

The membership is part of the overarching Green Policy Innovation initiative Fujitsu announced in December 2007, aimed at achieving a 7-million-ton reduction in CO2 emissions by 2010.

The Green Grid is a global consortium established in February 2007 with a mission to define meaningful, user-centric models and metrics; develop standards, measurement methods, processes and new technologies to improve performance against the defined metrics; and to promote the adoption of energy-efficient standards, processes, measurements, and technologies.

Further strengthening its initiatives to promote Green IT, Fujitsu unveiled in December 2007 its Green Policy Innovation initiative, which aims to achieve a cumulative reduction of more than 7 million tons of CO2 from fiscal 2007 through fiscal 2010. At the same time, the company announced its Green Infrastructure Solution designed to improve the energy efficiency of its customers' IT facilities, from facility design through operations. Fujitsu aims to optimise its customers' entire IT operations through compact, light, power-saving blade servers, a range of other power-efficient server and storage products, software aimed at improving energy efficiency, and through the design of air conditioning and facilities that house IT equipment.

In the future, Fujitsu plans closer coordination between its Green Policy Innovation initiative and its activities for The Green Grid. In addition, the company will leverage its energy-efficiency know-how and methods, along with its vast technological resources, to support the creation of new efficiency standards for the industry.
