Fujitsu pioneers supply chain CO2 visualization

Tokyo, September 15  2023:Fujitsu  has  announced that it has succeeded in visualizing CO2 emissions throughout its supply chain through participation in the World Business Council for Sustainable Development’s Partnership for Carbon Transparency (PACT) Implementation program , the world’s first social implementation program to enable business-to-business data integration for product carbon footprint (PCF) information

For its initial implementation of the scheme, Fujitsu leveraged its Track and Trust technology, a PACT-compliant solution based on the Pathfinder Network , to link actual data and calculate CO2 emissions in PCF across its notebook PC supply chain. Fujitsu also identified solutions to real supply chain issues, including how to improve supplier engagement and build ecosystems through PCF data exchange using actual supplier data.

Going forward, Fujitsu will continue to leverage the insights gathered through this project around data collection and collaboration to contribute to the standardization of methodologies and best practices for business-to-business data linkage in the supply chain together with industry associations including the WBCSD and other key stakeholders. In so doing, Fujitsu will help to address the resolution of global environmental problems, which represents one of the essential contribution areas defined under the Fujitsu Group’s approach to Materiality. In addition to this project, Fujitsu will also provide the know-how gained through data linkage and methodology standardization as ESG management platform services and digital supply chain services for its Fujitsu Uvance portfolio.

As a Lead Company and PACT confirmant solution provider, Fujitsu will report on improvements and challenges in the implementation at the Scope 3 Summit - From uncertainty to imPACT  scheduled for September 19, 2023 (U.S. time). Fujitsu will also introduce its field trials and PoCs in Japan along with the progress of Japanese companies' efforts as it debates future initiatives in its capacity as deputy leader of the Visualization Working Group the Green×Digital Consortium powered by JEITA
