Fujitsu Donates to International Association for Universal Design.
Tokyo, Aug 29, 2011 - (JCN Newswire) - Fujitsu has today donated a portion of the proceeds from the sale of its FMV Raku-Raku PC 3 to the International Association for Universal Design (IAUD) to support the development and spread of universal design*.
As was announced on July 27, 2010, Fujitsu decided to donate a portion of FMV Raku-Raku PC 3 sales to the IAUD in order to support the development and spread of universal design. After concluding the designated sales period, Fujitsu today contributed approximately 1.2 million yen, a part of these proceeds, to the IAUD.
The Fujitsu Group views the promotion of universal design as one of its corporate social responsibilities (CSR). To support universal design in the area of ICT, the company is pursuing initiatives to make ICT available to a larger number of people-improving accessibility-and to devise ways to enhance ICT usability.
As part of these efforts, this donation is intended to bring about an ICT society that is open to all and enables as many people as possible to use PCs and other ICT devices.
Going forward, the Fujitsu Group will continue to engage, in collaboration with relevant international organizations and NGOs, in CSR activities to improve ICT literacy and create opportunities through the use of ICT.
