Contribute to the creation and widespread use of renewable energies through advanced materials
  • Selected as a “Companies Taking on the Zero-Emission Challenge”*5 by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry in recognition of our active participation in various industry-government-academia collaborative projects by the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO), including the “Development of Material Evaluation Techniques for Advanced and Innovative Batteries (Phase 2)”.

    A project sponsored by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry to list enterprises that take on the challenge of innovation to realize a decarbonized society and provide information that can be used by investors and others. At TCFD Summit 2021 held on October 5, 2021, about 600 “Zero Emission Challenging Companies” were announced.
  • *6 Zero Emissions: In this case, it refers to the emission of “GHG”.

Targets for FY2030 Major activities of FY2021 Against target
(1) Adopting alternatives to animal testing in all safety assessments.
  • Completed replacement of two of the seven “risk management priority substances” identified in FY2020. In FY 2021, reduced the use of four substances and judged that one substance poses a low risk.
  • The company-wide global chemical substance management system has been revamped to improve the accuracy of the risk assessment of chemical substances used in our group. Started using this database not only to reduce risks, but also to develop technologies that contribute to solving social issues.
(2) Conduct the safety evaluation as alternatives to animal testing
  • Developed an evaluation method “ADRA"(Amino acid Derivative Reactivity Assay, our original skin sensitization test). The chemical which can be tested by ADRA used to be limited to a single substance, and was expanded to mixtures. This evaluation method was newly adopted in OECD Test Guideline (OECDTG442C).

In line with the Fujifilm Group Environmental Strategy, “Green Value Climate Strategy,” we will promote our production activities with lower environmental impact and creation and dissemination of products and services with superior environmental performance to achieve our targets.

As a company with core engineering technologies in the molecular design of functional molecules and functional polymers, we also set new targets for chemical management and utilization to ensure product and chemical safety.

Environmental issues, including climate change, are the highest priority issues in international society. The Fujifilm Group is addressing environmental issues by uniting its Group efforts and continues to work toward achieving its FY2030 targets.

The FUJIFILM Group undertakes environmentally conscious product development based on its design for environment, which considers the entire lifecycle of all products from procurement, manufacturing, transportation, use and disposal in setting targets from the perspective of climate change mitigation (reduced power use, etc.) from the design stage, Reduce, Reuse & Recycle principle of resource saving and recycling (Reduce, Reuse & Recycle), risk reduction of chemical substances, and biodiversity from the design stage. The degree of target achievement is assessed based on the mechanism of environmentally design once a product is developed.
This approach is applied not only to materials and standalone equipment, but also applied to software and solutions in a bid to reduce environmental impact in the society as a whole. LCA*7 is conducted for quantitative and objective assessment of environmental impact. The environmental label is also used for active dissemination of information.

FUJIFILM Group “Green Value Products” Certification Program

 (Example of certification label)

In an effort to “contribute to resolving environmental issues in society through our products and services,” as set out in the “Sustainable Value Plan (SVP) 2030” CSR plan targeted for FY2030, the FUJIFILM Group has added the FUJIFILM Group “Green Value Products” certification program in FY2018 to its existing internal regulations on design for environment, clarifying products’ environmental values and extending certification to products incorporating outstanding environmental considerations.

Use of Environmental Labe

To ensure a high level of environmental quality for all of our products and provide consumers with accurate information on product quality, we are actively addressing the use and disclosure of environmental labels. In this section, we will introduce the concept of “Eco Mark,” “EcoLeaf Environmental Label,” “Carbon Footprint,” and “Type II: Self-declaration Label” which we have acquired.

Measures for “Environment” through our products in each business

The Fujifilm Group is promoting environmental measures taking advantage of the product characteristics of each business.

The Fujifilm Group is committed to providing environmental education for its employees to help them gain basic knowledge on the environment and understanding about environmental issues, while promoting environmental activities. In addition, the Group provides e-leaning-based environmental education for all of its employees to ensure that they fully understand the “Fujifilm Group Green Policy.”

Third-Party Opinion on “Environment”

Achieving your major SVP 2030 targets ahead of plan and the subsequent upward revision of the target figures demonstrate the excellence of the Fujifilm Group’s corporate culture. I respect the constant efforts by the management and all members of the Group.

Global trends are now driving net-zero emissions to expand from a corporate-basis to cover the entire supply chain, making the net-zero commitment a trading condition. Further, the carbon-minus scheme, which can offset past emissions, has also appeared. Society is demanding, more than ever before, that companies show a clear sense of social contribution through their businesses, such as by taking initiatives in supporting environmental measures outside the company.

The pursuit of green recovery that should go beyond stopgap measures, generated by the sense of crisis about worsening climate change, is the means of survival for nations and corporations in the 21st century. In the post-COVID-19 era, it will be essential to make drastic changes to the industrial structure and business portfolio toward building a sustainable society.

I look forward to seeing just how the Fujifilm Group, which already implements world-class environmental measures, will navigate through this global turning point to attain new heights.
