Environment : Activities for Reducing Our Own Environmental BurdensBiodiversity Conservation

Basic Approach

At the Fujitsu General Group, we strive to conserve and make sustainable use of biodiversity, based on our idea that "our business activities both benefit from and impact biodiversity."

Fujitsu General Group Biodiversity Action Principles

In order to specifically tackle biodiversity under the Fujitsu Group common philosophy, we rearranged the "Fujitsu Group Biodiversity Conduct Guidelines" of Fujitsu Limited for Fujitsu General and formulated the "Fujitsu General Biodiversity Action Principles" in 2012.

Creating a Network of Ecosystems by Developing a Biotope

The Hamamatsu Business Office maintains a biotope that it created in the green space on its premises in FY2012. Conservation of the rare species of Tanakia lanceolata (a freshwater fish) and Pronodularia japanensis (a mollusk), both of which are listed as Endangered Species IA (Note 1)in the Red Data Book of Shizuoka Prefecture has been achieved inside the biotope, and their natural breeding has been confirmed at present.

Many other species of plants and animals also live and grow here, including Oryzias latipes (Japanese rice fish) (Endangered Species II), Persicaria japonica (Japanese knotweed), and Lycoris radiata (red spider lily). We are also thinning out excessively abundant plants and removing invasive species to create an environment that attracts native species living in the vicinity of the location.

The variety of species found in the biotope, including Lyriothemis pachygastra (a dragonfly) and Rhabdophis tigrinus (a snake, the tiger keelback), is increasing every year. In FY2020, we also saw new species such as Anoplophora malasiaca (citrus long-horned beetle) and Cantao ocellatus (a shield bug).

We will continue to maintain the site to help develop a network of ecosystems around it and conserve rare species outside their habitats.
