Fujitsu and Mizuho Bank partner for ESG data management project
Japan’s Fujitsu and Mizuho Bank have partnered to develop services for corporate customers that will help them manage environmental, social and governance (ESG) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) data, including greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
The partnership will combine Mizuho Bank’s customer networks and information on environmental and energy solutions with Fujitsu’s cloud services for visualising CO2 emissions across the entire supply chain, “supporting customers in their efforts towards de-carbonisation and improving the efficiency of their sustainable management strategies”.
“This will allow the two companies to calculate, visualise and accurately and efficiently analyse GHG emissions to support customers in reducing their carbon footprint,” the two firms say.
The new solution will enable the management of ESG data including energy consumption, waste management, occupational health and safety, and corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities. It will enable companies to respond to the Japanese Law Concerning the Rational Use of Energy (Energy Conservation Act) and “promptly and accurately” disclose information for global reporting standards.
Japan’s Mizuho Bank is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mizuho Financial Group, with approximately 60,000 employees in 35 countries outside of Japan, and assets worth almost $2 trillion.
Fujitsu is a global Japanese firm which provides digital transformation services to customers in more than 100 countries, employing 124,000 people across the world. Its services are based on computing, networks, AI, data and security and converging technologies.
