In today’s business landscape, addressing environmental concerns such as global warming is non-negotiable for forward-thinking companies.

Yet, a question arises: Why should companies prioritize sustainability? Is it merely due to regulatory obligations? A prevailing sentiment suggests that “sustainability is a business expense."

However, Ichiro Aoyagi, the leader of Fujitsu's Solution Service Strategic Unit and the visionary behind Fujitsu Uvance initiatives, posits a more optimistic viewpoint: “Embracing sustainability can unlock significant business opportunities."

Aoyagi's recommendation for harmonizing sustainability with business goals hinges on the strategic application of digital technologies. He presents a compelling four-step approach that not only champions digital transformation but also promises tangible outcomes in environmental stewardship. This methodology, he believes, will be pivotal in our journey toward a carbon-neutral and circular economy.

In our expert report, "Sustainability Transformation for our planet" readers are introduced to these four steps, alongside a deep dive into Fujitsu's initiatives, actionable blueprints for businesses, and invaluable insights that pave the way for a Sustainability Transformation.

Here's a glimpse into how technological innovation and data synergies can be the backbone for achieving both sustainability and business ambitions:

Cross-sector collaboration for decarbonization

  • When data is shared and combined with other sources, it gains in value, as it can highlight new patterns and connections that generate further insights.
  • Alongside commercial opportunities, data ecosystems have a broader, mutual benefit: they allow organizations to take a holistic approach to sustainability.

Supporting sustainable models of production

  • Global industrialization has raised the standard of living alongside competition for resources, and we now face a future where demand for certain raw materials will outstrip the supply.
  • To ensure we make effective use of these limited resources, we need to create a circular economy centered on sustainable production, consumption and reuse.

Enhancing sustainability metrics

  • The continuous flow of real-time information provided by the IoT brings a deeper level of detail to data ecosystems, which increases the value for those participating in them.
  • By connecting buildings, infrastructure, and shipments of goods through the IoT, multiple companies can assess their ESG performances in real time and visualize the full impact of their environmental initiatives.
