Fujitsu Ltd has implemented an environmentally conscious stance toward product development. According to the company, it has explored laws and environmental regulations, both local and foreign, as well as market demand for green products in creating its standard. Based on the IEC 62075, the company's green product development standard will meld with its engineering expertise in coming up with environmentally sound products.

Fujitsu develops PCs (both desktops and notebooks), servers and storage systems in Japan and Europe, and supplies these products throughout the world. The company uses a uniform criteria pertaining to environmentally conscious designs.

The new standard will guide engineering design in promoting resource efficiency and recycling (making products smaller, lighter and easier to disassemble, as well as selecting materials that are easier to recycle) and in reducing power consumption during product use. It also intends to reduce noise levels and limit or eliminate the use of harmful substances.

In addition to complying with IEC 62075, the standard also promotes conformity to the Energy Star program, an international power saving standard promoting the use of high-efficiency internal and external power supplies, use of plant-based plastics or recycled plastics, use of halogen-free design and major eco-label requirements for each country.

The new standard will allow Fujitsu to consider the requirements of international standards and the demand for green products that meet the needs of the global market. It will also improve the performance of the new products based on the benchmark against the environmental performance of previous models. Additionally, the company can efficiently share detailed environmental information about products developed in both Japan and Europe centers.
