Environmental assessment system

As the influence and risk on the environment of products are related to the various work process of Fujitsu General Group, we are implementing the assessment covering the whole value chain.

Standard and Evaluation of Product Environment Assessment

"Green Products" are the products of which overall assessment score is higher than standard point (80 points) and there is no lowest point in all assessment items. And among them, the products which have the top level (Note1) of environmental performance are designated as "Super Green Products".

In FY2017, five new models were newly certified as Super Green Products.

Product Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)

We are working on the reduction of environmental burden at each stage by assessing the environmental burden of product lifecycle at the time of designing by Fujitsu General's own automatic calculation system.

Pursuit of energy saving performance

Fujitsu General Group believes to be able to contribute to the sustainable society by developing the products with improved energy saving performance which leads to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and providing them to customers.

As a result of improving energy saving performance of newly developed products, the CO2 emission at the time of using air conditioner products developed and sold for Japan in FY2017 was reduced by 1% compared with FY2013.
Toward the achievement of goals of the Environmental Protection Program Stage VIII, we will continue to develop the products pursuing further energy saving performance and contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

Introduction of case examples

Room air conditioner for Japan, "nocria®" Z series (Idoor unit: AS-Z40H2W / Outdoor unit: AO-Z40H2)

Realization of improvement of energy saving performance and reduction of weight

By developing a large-diameter cross flow fan of 115mm in diameter, improvement of air blowing performance by changing layout of heat exchanger was realized. As a result, we reduced annual power consumption by about 2.8% compared with conventional models (Note1) and realized energy saving standard achievement rate of 146% (Target year FY2010).

In addition, by mounting a new automatic filter cleaning unit with streamlined shape and structure of dust box and reduced number of parts and a board with reduced parts height, the depth of the product was reduced and the weight of indoor unit was reduced by about 5.5% compared with our conventional models (Note2) by making heat exchanger thinner.
