CO2 Emission Reduction Activities through Processless Thermal CTP Plates
In response to climate change, we are actively working with our customers to reduce CO2 emissions by participating in a carbon offset program with the Complete Processless Thermal CTP Plates.
Participating plates be used as Zero Carbon products because we offset the amount of CO2 emissions from those products.
Our Two Social Contributions by Carbon Offsetting
By you purchase the SUPERIA Processless Thermal CTP Plates with carbon offset , it follows that has been made two social contributions.
1. Contributing to CO2 Emission Reduction
You can highlight the reduction in CO2 emissions from your business activities in sustainability reports.
You can appeal to your clients with the reduction in CO2 emissions related to your printed materials.
2. Supporting to Developing Country
Reduce CO2 by helping to generate clean energy in developing countries.
You can highlight the support of developing countries as a SDG initiative.
About Carbon Offset Certificate
Fujifilm issues carbon offsetting certificate to customers according to use amount of processless thermal CTP plates.*1
Customers can appeal to clients about CO2 reduction contribution, such as reduction of CO2 from all customers’ industry activities and/or reduction of CO2 emission from printings with this certificate.
About Green Graphic Project (GGP)
Please see below for the benefits of participating in GGP and how you can use Carbon Zero plates.
Contributing support to developing countries
To offset carbon is to support developing countries.
CO2 emission trading*2 used in carbon offsetting are created from supporting such as clean energy generation projects in developing countries.
Support destination example :
Kenya: Olkaria geothermal energy expansion project
This project develops renewable electric power through geothermal energy, replacing fossil fuel energy sources and contributing to a reduction in greenhouse gases. Furthermore, the development and application of these geothermal power plants led to the employment of local youths, and the establishment/improvement of infrastructure. For example, maintenance of this region's reservoirs for livestock has allowed for the accumulation of six months' usage of water, and many citizens receive benefits from the establishment of six schools and the expansion of the water supply.
Bangladesh: Brick industry production efficiency improvement project
Bricks used as the primary construction material in Bangladesh are produced in old, inefficient kilns, which are the greatest source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and also are cause of air pollution. This project supported to the installation of energy-efficient brick kilns, and not only reduced greenhouse gases, but mitigated serious environmental pollution, the country's energy needs, and industrial waste disposal issues. Also, the project led to the establishment of occupational safety and health standards, and the improvement of working environments.
Honduras: La Esperanza hydroelectric power generation project
The poverty rate of Honduras is at 75%, the majority live in rural areas. Electric power is distributed to only 37% of the agricultural communities. This support project constructs and repairs La Esperanza hydroelectric power plants, supplying stable energy to the city of La Esperanza and reducing greenhouse gases by reducing the consumption of firewood. Also, there are some progress in local job creation, neglected forest maintenance and afforestation in the vicinity of hydroelectric power plants, and roads.
