Application of Environment Load Analysis to Branch Office Monitoring
Greenhouse gas emissions in Japan have increased by 9.0% from 1990, which is the base year of the Kyoto Protocol, and those from the commercial and other sectors including office buildings are especially large. In those sectors, greenhouse gas emissions caused by the use of Information Technology (IT) are large, so reductions require adequate IT solutions. Fujitsu is proposing a branch office monitoring system that provides operation, operator, and space analysis to find problems in branch offices and improve the workflow and IT systems. Furthermore, the paper provides environmental load analysis developed by Fujitsu Laboratories to assess the environmental-load reduction effect achieved by introducing IT solutions in the field.
