Future Activities and Targets

Since 2018, the CSR procurement that has been successful in our document business has been expanded both in scope and quality across the Group. Although supplier risks are diversifying due to the wide span of our businesses, we continue to communicate with our suppliers to resolve any issues and implement countermeasures to maintain a responsible and sustainable business. Also, following the revision of the Fujifilm Group Basic Concepts and Action Guidelines for Biodiversity Conservation in April 2019, we continue our efforts to preserve biodiversity to sustain the “blessings of nature,” which human beings seek to enjoy into the future.
