FUJIFILM Business Innovation has worked since FY2016 to visualize social impact from our social contribution activities since FY2016.
In FY2012, FUJIFILM Business Innovation decided to strengthen social contributions that harness the unique qualities of FUJIFILM Business Innovation as a company In FY2012, FUJIFILM Business Innovation decided to strengthen social contributions that harness the unique qualities of FUJIFILM Business Innovation as a company whose ultimate calling is “communications.” The company set out two high-priority management themes to encourage its social contribution activities. These themes are: “Education for future generations,” and “Conservation of diminishing cultures and information.” Through such activities, FUJIFILM Business Innovation aims to achieve three of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): “#4. Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all”; “#11. Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all” and “#17. Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development.”
FUJIFILM Business Innovation has measured the social impact of contribution activities in order to understand effects. Specifically, regarding the three projects “Offering Learning Materials in Emerging Countries”, “Reproducing and Utilizing Historical Documents”, “the Mirai Zukuri (future creation) activity in Tono”. FUJIFILM Business Innovation established a social impact assessment method*1 to quantitatively and qualitatively measure the changes and effects to visualize the social impact. FUJIFILM Business Innovation then reflected the assessment results utilizing the PDCA cycle, while also sharing them with stakeholders to contribute to resolving problems in local communities. In this way, FUJIFILM Business Innovation helped communities to further develop over the years.
To evaluate the social impact from our major social contribution activities, including the project to offer learning materials in emerging countries and reproduction and utilization of traditional documents, we created a logic model and made trial assessments.
