With the Paris Agreement on climate change taking effect, the world has begun to move toward the creation of a carbon neutral society.

The Fujifilm Group has been setting management indicators for CO2 emissions across the entire product lifecycle (from material procurement, product manufacturing, transportation, use and disposal) and we are continuing to actively reduce CO2 emissions across the Group as a whole. After adopting the international targets of the Paris Agreement, we have set a new target to reduce CO2 emissions over the entire product lifecycle by 30% compared to FY2013 by FY2030. Actions at each stage of the lifecycle will be taken in the years ahead. Especially at the manufacturing stage, attention will be also directed to introducing and applying renewable energy as a lower carbon energy source alongside ongoing efforts to conserve energy and maximize energy efficiency and use. And Design for the Environment (DfE) has been introduced into product development to encourage environmentally conscious design and development over the entire product lifecycle and to contribute to reducing CO2 emissions.

Target

  • Reduce CO2 emissions from the entire product lifecycle by 30% compared to FY2005 by FY2020

In FY2016, Fujifilm began a new activity against global warming to reduce CO2 emissions with its customers based on carbon offset. It means “purchasing one of our skin care product series ASTALIFT leads to the reduction of CO2 emissions by 6 kg, the equivalent of a day's emissions from the customer's daily activities.” In coordination with “Cool Choice” promoted by the Ministry of the Environment, we are supporting customers to reduce CO2 emissions simply by selecting our products with carbon offset, as well as offering tips on reducing CO2 emissions in everyday life.

We received the Excellence Award in the 6th Carbon Offset Awards (*) for “increasing awareness for customers to prevent global warming” by linking the customer's everyday activities with CO2 reductions. For ASTALIFT, we are working on reducing plastics used in packaging and will be actively involved in environmental activities in the cosmetics business, together with our customers.

* Sponsored by the Carbon Offset Network, and started in FY2011. Some of the proceeds from sales through this activity are being used for CO2 reduction projects such as by installing individual photovoltaic power generation systems in developing nations. Carbon emissions reduced through the project are offset against the emissions in the customer's everyday life.

Third-Party Opinion on “Promote Global Warming Countermeasures”

Look forward to becoming a world leader in taking action on global warming, with a strong determination to review SVP 2030 each year

In addition to being involved in UNEP FI, Mr. Sueyoshi has served in various positions, such as committee member on various types of councils on the Central Environment Council, advisor to Kawasaki City and Kagoshima City, part-time lecturer at Waseda University and others. He also works as an external member of the board to companies and engages in efforts to raise awareness on environmental issues and the social responsibility of companies on TV, in newspapers, published works, and lectures.

The Fujifilm Group is widely recognized for its measures to address global warming. The Group made solid achievements in SVP 2016, which ended in FY2016, proven by winning the Agency for Natural Resources and Energy's Director General's Award in the 2016 Energy Conservation Grand Prize, recognition for excellence in the Carbon Offset Awards and the Chairman's Award in recognition of its contributions to promoting the 3Rs by the 3R Promotion Council. Not satisfied with these honors, it has embarked on efforts to cut CO2 emissions by 30% by 2030 in response to the global movement towards implementing the Paris Agreement and the SDGs.

Quite naturally, this is a very ambitious goal for the Fujifilm Group. On the other hand, leading companies around the world are stepping forward in the drive to realize “zero emissions” in the true sense of the word in response to the steady aggravation of global warming. The decarbonization sought in the Paris Agreement is expected to accelerate with each year. I look forward to the Fujifilm Group becoming a world leader in taking action on global warming, with a strong determination to review SVP 2030 each year.

Response to the third-party opinion

We are very grateful for the outstanding evaluation of the Fujifilm Group's activities and results in addressing global warming under SVP 2016 and the new goals we have established for the year 2030.

The Fujifilm Group has made a new start in decarbonization with the Paris Agreement. We intend to work over a very long time span, adding new perspectives and approaches in the areas of promoting greater efficiency in energy use, lowering carbon emissions and implementing energy-conserving measures, as well as studying new opportunities for renewable energy use and developing products that contribute to a low carbon society. In the years ahead, we plan to review our progress each year and devote all our energies not only to achieve our 2030 goals but to further decarbonization.
