Fujitsu Named as One of the Green 15 by IDG's InfoWorld Magazine

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - May 7, 2008) - Fujitsu Computer Systems Corporation announced today that IDG's InfoWorld Magazine, the leading integrated media brand for IT Decision Makers, has selected Fujitsu for InfoWorld's Green 15 Awards for 2008. InfoWorld's first-ever Green 15 special feature was published April 22 on Infoworld.com.

Companies around the world have embraced green technology to drive projects and develop products aimed at boosting energy efficiency, trimming waste, and reducing or eliminating the use and production of harmful substances. The InfoWorld Green 15 awards recognize the 15 most innovative IT initiatives that fall under this umbrella of sustainability.

"This award from InfoWorld is further validation of our deep commitment to environmental responsibility and to taking concrete steps to reduce our carbon footprint, eliminate lead and other harmful wastes from our supply chain and products, and implement broad conservation, recycling and reuse programs on our campus," said Richard McCormack, senior vice president of marketing for Fujitsu Computer Systems. "We are proud of the environmental leadership Fujitsu has shown for more than a decade, and we have clearly demonstrated that investing in technologies and programs that are good for the environment is also smart for our business."

In 2007, Fujitsu installed a hydrogen fuel cell on its Sunnyvale campus. The fuel cell provides 50 percent of the power needed to cool the campus data center and labs, reducing the amount of fossil fuel burned to maintain operations and easing pressure on the local power grid. Fujitsu is the first Silicon Valley-based company to install its own hydrogen power plant.

The Fujitsu Environmental Program develops employee, facility, and manufacturing-based environmental programs. Since 1996, Fujitsu has published regular reports detailing the programs and results of its environmental protection activities. Fujitsu has made the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index eight years in a row, and the FTSE4Good Index Series five years in a row. By the end of fiscal 2009, all Fujitsu business units will increase the number of Super Green Products (those with the most advanced, environmentally friendly characteristics) by at least 20 percent.

"Many organizations worldwide are struggling with high energy costs, as well as limited space and power to meet their computing needs," said Ted Samson, senior analyst, InfoWorld. "They're also feeling pressure from investors, legislators, customers, and from within to cut waste, reduce their carbon footprint, and be better environmental stewards. The InfoWorld Green 15 winners clearly demonstrate how sustainable technology initiatives can be complementary -- even instrumental -- to achieving business goals."
