Sustainable Value Plan 2030
Reduce our own environmental impacts and contribute to the resolution of environmental issues.
Since the Industrial Revolution, we have experienced large improvements in our lives, but at the same time, this has caused a range of environmental issues.
Continuing rises in sea levels and extreme weather resulting from climate change, depletion of our land resources, destruction of our forests, water pollution and depletion of water resources and changes in our ecosystems are taking place on a global scale. The Paris Agreement calls for action by all countries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The international society must take action to resolve both the issues resulting from our economic activities and environmental issues to guarantee sustainable development into the future.
Goals under Sustainable Value Plan 2030
Address climate change.
Promote recycling of resources.
Address energy issues toward a non-carbon society.
Ensure product and chemical safety.
To achieve sustainable development, the whole of the Fujifilm Group around the world is working on various environmental issues under its Green Policy so that it can also be the leading company in the environmental field. In addition to reducing the environmental impact of our production activities, we are focusing on cutting CO2 emissions and making effective use of water and other resources across the entire product lifecycle, reaching as far as the use and disposal of our products by our customers. We are also developing products and services that offer outstanding energy-saving and resource saving results that will contribute to reducing the environmental impact for society as a whole. In R&D we are developing new technologies to resolve environmental issues including energy issues.
1. Address Climate Change
Target for 2030
(1) Reduce the Fujifilm Group's CO2 emissions by 30% by FY2030 (compared to the FY2013 level).
(2) Contribute to a reduction in the CO2 emissions generated by society by 50 million tons by FY2030.
The Fujifilm Group has set new targets to create of a carbon neutral society aimed at by the Paris Agreement.
Along with CO2 emissions reduction across the entire product lifecycle (from material procurement, product manufacturing, transportation, use and disposal), we are continuing to actively reduce CO2 emissions in society through providing our products and services. At the manufacturing stage, we direct our efforts at using lower carbon energy sources, including adopting and utilizing renewable energy, in addition to the promotion of energy saving and efficient energy usage.
* We aim to contribute to reductions in the CO2 emissions generated by society that equals the total CO2 emissions from the entire product lifecycle in the Fujifilm Group by 2030.
２．Promote Recycling of Resources
Target for 2030
(1) Reduce the amount of water the Fujifilm Group inputs for production by 30% by FY2030 (compared to the FY2013 level).
(2) Contribute to the treatment of 35 million tons of water per year in society by FY2030.
(3) Reduce the amount of waste generated by the Fujifilm Group by 30% by FY2030 (compared to the FY2013 level).
(4) Improve the efficiency of the Fujifilm Group's resource use per unit of production by 30% by FY2030 (compared to the FY2013 level).
Since our establishment, the Fujifilm Group has been actively recycling resources, through reducing water usage, recycling and reusing water, recovering and reusing resources (e.g. silver), and establishing a recycling system for multifunction devices and copiers, etc. We are conducting efforts to use resources effectively and reduce waste through measures which take into account the total lifecycle of a product, by considering the 3Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle) in the product design, reducing loss at the manufacturing stage, collecting, reusing and recycling used products, and recycling or converting into valuables.
* We aim at contribution in society that equals the environment impact (input) from our business activities by 2030.
３．Address Energy Issues toward a Non-Carbon Society
Target for 2030
Contribute to the creation and widespread use of renewable energies through highly functional materials.
To build the carbon neutral society envisioned under the Paris Agreement, the Fujifilm Group will develop and make available energy-related technologies that use highly functional materials from three aspects: energy creation, energy storage and energy conservation. We continue contributing to renewable energy creation and dissemination through accelerating the introduction and widespread use of renewable energies in society by our technologies.
４．Ensure Product and Chemical Safety
Target for 2030
Minimize adverse effects on human health and the environment through the manufacture and use of chemicals.
Because the Fujifilm Group manufactures a wide range of products including chemical products, highly functional materials, optical devices, office equipment, and medical equipment, we have established management rules for each manufacturing process of our products from two perspectives: management of the handling of chemical substances and management of information on chemical substances in our products. We have implemented global operations management across the Group and we have established a system to acquire accurate information on the laws and regulations in each country and region around the world to start a prompt preparation in an early stage. This has allowed us to maintain comprehensive and efficient management of chemical substances.
