CO2 Reduction Activities with Customers through ASTALIFT

(FUJIFILM’s Activities)

In response to climate change, we are actively working with our customers to reduce CO2 emissions by participating in a carbon offset program with ASTALIFT.
For each product purchased, CO2 emissions from a customer's daily life (5kg-CO2 per day) is offset (compensated).

By purchase ASTALIFT Jelly Aquarysta and ASTALIFT Moist Lotion with carbon offset , it follows that have made two social contributions.

1. Contributing to CO2 Emission Reduction
Customers’ Daily Life

When you purchase ASTALIFT, you help reduce CO2 emissions, support developing countries, and reduce waste, without making extra effort in your everyday life.

2. Supporting to Developing Country
Helping to Generate Clean Energy in Developing Countries

Part of the sales are applied to CO2 reduction projects such as implementation of household solar power generation systems in developing countries.

ASTALIFT Jelly Aquarysta

ASTALIFT Moist Lotion

Products : ASTALIFT Jelly Aquarysta (40g size/refill, 60g size/refill), ASTALIFT Moist Lotion
Implementation time : July 1, 2021- June 30, 2022
Emission trading used : CO2 emission trading used in offsetting are created from supporting CO2 reduction projects in developing countries.

Endorsed by National Movement "COOL CHOICE" *1

ASTALIFT is joined to “COOL CHOICE,” the national movement selecting products, services and activities connected to reducing CO2.
We are working with our customers to help stop global warming.

  • *1 “COOL CHOICE” is an initiative that makes "cool choices" playing a part in measures coping with global warming, such as replacement by purchase of products, use of services, and lifestyle choices contributing to a decarbonated society, in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 26% by 2030, as compared to 2013 levels.

Carbon offsets can help developing countries.
CO2 trading emissions (Kyoto credits CER*2) used in carbon offsetting are created from supporting such as clean energy generation projects in developing countries.

Benefit of assisting developing countries :

Nepal: Biogas Support Program

This project aimed to popularize biogas devices in rural households in Nepal, thus reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by replacing the fuel source that had been used for cooking, such as non-renewable firewood and fossil fuels (kerosene).

Manure from cows and buffaloes raised by farmers are supplied to the biogas plants, where biogas is generated via an anaerobic treatment process. The use of such biogas not only reduces GHGs emitted due to the burning of fuelwood and kerosene, but also eliminates the inhalation of and exposure to smoke discharged when burning charcoal indoors, thus reducing respiratory diseases and eye infections. This not only cuts down on the harvesting of timber as a raw material for charcoal, but also improves hygiene by cleanly processing the bovine manure.

The installation of biogas burners improves working conditions for women and children in the home, and the time saved can also be used productively, such as with new income creation, and participating in social and educational activities. Farmers were able to get organic fertilizer and sustainable biogas for cooking at no cost thanks to using the manure from their livestock.

  • *2 Kyoto Credits (CER): Abbreviation of "Certified Emission Reductions". UN emission trading  certified through the Kyoto Mechanism CDM Project regulated by the Kyoto Protocols (Clean Development Mechanism: CO2 reduction project implemented by developed countries supporting developing countries)

We produce approximately 5 kg of greenhouse gases per person every day. It is important to reduce greenhouse gases to stop global warming.

We make an effort to reduce CO2 emissions. Nevertheless there are unavoidable emissions in our everyday life and economic activities.
Carbon offset is the offsetting CO2 emissions that could not be reduced, by utilizing the CO2 emission reductions (credits = emission credits) that were reduced elsewhere.
The right to emit (carbon credit) used in this carbon offset program is created through Clean Development Mechanism (CDM)  (*1), one of the methods approved by the Kyoto Protocol to combat global warming.

How much CO2 is emitted from a household?

5kg of CO2 is emitted per person per day in their daily life.*4 
Main sources of it are the use of personal vehicles and household electronics such as air conditioners, lights or refrigerators.
