 As part of its efforts to address climate change, Fuji Electric is working to reduce society’s CO2 emissions by providing equipment related to clean energy such as geothermal and hydro power generation, as well as energy-saving equipment such as power semiconductors and inverters.
 In addition, Fuji Electric has introduced energy-saving equipment such as energy management systems, inverters and high-efficiency air conditioning systems manufactured in-house in its factories. To deal with greenhouse gases other than CO2, measures are taken to reduce and find substitutes for gases with high global warming potential. In this way, the company is promoting reductions in the emission of greenhouse gases in production activities.

 To achieve a low-carbon society, Fuji Electric is aiming for an 80% or more reduction in greenhouse gas emissions over its entire supply chain. The 2030 targets are a 31% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions during production (as compared with FY2013) and an annual 50 million ton reduction in CO2 emissions from Fuji Electric products in society.
 In June 2020, Fuji Electric expressed its support for the TCFD*2, an international framework for analyzing and disclosing the financial impact of climate change.
