Fujifilm Green Fund

Fujifilm considered rewarding favor of customers and support from all quarters over many years through new social contribution when we were approaching our 50th anniversary in 1984. In 1983, Fujifilm donated 10 billion yen to establish the Charitable Trust Fujifilm Green Fund (FGF) toward nature conservation represented by the beautiful water, air and greenery that we have been protected since our foundation. The FGF is the first charitable trust aimed to conserve nature from a private business in Japan and has been assisting many activities and researches to date.

The FGF has been providing aid and assistance to a multitude of activities and researches related to the conservation and promotion of the natural environment, with accomplishments to show for it.

1.  Afforestation for the Future

The FGF has been selecting activities focused on suburban green spaces and offering funds assistance to activities focused on afforestation that allows people to get in touch with nature, creating sizable accomplishments by providing aid with a long-term perspective.
The first aid recipient was the Maioka Water and Greenery Council (a citizen’s group in the Totsuka district of Yokohama, Kanagawa prefecture. Opened Maioka Park in 1993). The second aid recipient was Touraijuku (a local youth group in Hinohara village, Tokyo. Opened Fuji no Mori (Forest of Fujifilm) in 1990). The third aid recipient was the Kakuma Satoyama Zone in Kanazawa University (an organization on the Kanazawa University campus. Founded the Kakuma Satomi Seminar in 2013). The fourth aid recipient was the Ezoris Council (Obihiro city, Hokkaido).

2. Greenery Aid

The FGF has been engaging in various activities such as photo exhibitions and symposiums to cultivate better understanding over a broad range of people. Especially, our annual “Watashi-no-Shizenkansatsuro Competition” (Natural Observation Path Competition), started in 1984, has been deeply pervasive among elementary, junior high and high school students.

3.  Green Activity Aid

Along with maintaining and preserving greenery, the FGF has been offering funds as grant-in-aid for development of individuals and organizations proactive in creating rapport between humans and living things.

4.  Greenery Conservation and Application Research Aid

The FGF has been offering funds as grant-in-aid for development of individuals and organizations taking part in experimental studies aimed at specific research regarding natural environment conservation and activities, and quality improvement of green spaces.
