Social Contribution Activities

Basic Approach

The Fujifilm Group contributes to society through its business operations while interacting proactively with local communities as a corporate citizen, thereby contributing to the sustainable development of society. Utilizing the unique characteristics of our business operations, the Fujifilm Group implements distinctive activities that include creating archives of cultural assets and artistic works (record storage), reproducing historical documents, providing medical devices for use at disaster sites and by emerging nations and support through photography. In addition to these activities, we participate in various other activities to support education and foster coexistence with communities. Continued involvement in these activities makes up an important foundation for the Group’s business activities and for achieving the goals of SVP 2030.

Fuji Xerox has worked since FY2016 to visualize social impact from our social contribution activities since FY2016.

Background

In FY2012, Fuji Xerox decided to strengthen social contributions that harness the unique qualities of Fuji Xerox as a company In FY2012, Fuji Xerox decided to strengthen social contributions that harness the unique qualities of Fuji Xerox 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, Fuji Xerox 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.”

Purposes

Fuji Xerox 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regarding the three projects “Offering Learning Materials in Emerging Countries”, “Reproducing and Utilizing Historical Documents”, “the Mirai Zukuri (future creation) activity in Tono”. Fuji Xerox established a social impact assessment method*1 to quantitatively and qualitatively measure the changes and effects to visualize the social impact. Fuji Xerox 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, Fuji Xerox helped communities to further develop over the years.

Activities

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.

  • Creating a logic model utilizing the Social Impact Assessment Tool Set.*2

  • Creating a logic model based on a program evaluation approach and a review by Meiji University.
    To enhance the reliability of our own assessments, we asked the Institute for Program Evaluation of Meiji University to review our assessment results in FY2017.

  • Learning the latest trends concerning social impact assessment and contribution to disseminating such methods in Japan. Since FY2017, we have been participating in the Social Impact Management Initiative*3 as a core member of the Case Study Archiving and Utilization Working Group.

Future prospects

Valuing dialogues with our stakeholders, we continue improving our social contribution activities based on the results of our social impact assessment in order to contribute to problem solving and development of local communities. We are also considering applying this measurement method across the Fujifilm Group.
