Fujitsu has made major strides toward achieving sustainability since it set forth its Commitment to the Environment in 1992, and has created a number of successful environmental initiatives since then. The company’s Green Factory and Green Office systems, introduced in 2007, allowed 371 of company sites to achieve zero emissions for waste, which is more than any other company in Japan. The company’s Green Policy 2020 initiative aims to help Japanese society achieve an emissions peak in 2020, which will only decrease from that point. The company also develops eco-friendly products. In 1993, Fujitsu began to carry out its own environmental assessments, and in 1998, it established Green Product Evaluation Standards. By 2004, the company was developing Super Green Products, which have far better environmental characteristics than others on the market. In 2009 alone, the term "Super Green Product" could be applied to 30 of the company's product families.
