For more than a decade, Fujitsu has made a significant, sustainable investment in enterprise-wide initiatives, from reducing our carbon footprint, to eliminating lead and other harmful wastes from our supply chain and products, to broad recycling and reuse programs and reforestation projects. We continue to invest in innovation and programs that are good for both the environment and our business.
Fujitsu has become the first company in Silicon Valley to install a hydrogen power fuel cell. This revolutionary technology will generate 50% of the power needed to cool the servers in our data centers and computer labs at our Sunnyvale, CA campus, and will pay for itself in 3.5 years. It meets the most stringent air emissions standards set by the California Air Resources Board and produces 35% less CO2 per megawatt-hour than the average fossil fuel-based power plant.
In addition, while observing all environmental regulations in our business operations, we are actively pursuing environmental protection activities on our own initiative. Through our individual and collective actions, we will continuously strive to safeguard a rich natural environment for future generations.
