Promotion Policy 3
For continuing and sustainable growth, a business corporation is required to not only fulfill its economic and legal responsibilities but also regard its responsibilities toward various stakeholders. In the Sustainable Value Plan 2016, “Compliance and Risk Management,” “Human Resources,” and “Value Chain Management” are identified as priority issues for maintaining Fujifilm Group's sustainable corporate activities.
Note: The article on this page is taken from Sustainability Report 2017.
Solid results were achieved on each of the three priority issues.
1 Raise compliance awareness and ensuring risk management
Notwithstanding the inappropriate accounting practices at Fuji Xerox overseas subsidiaries, training programs have been organized on a group-wide basis to prevent corruption and harassment and to assure information security, as well as to promote better health among employees. In addition, we were able to strengthen our BCP efforts, represented by the success of a Fujifilm Group company in Kumamoto that made a rapid business recovery after the 2016 Great Kumamoto Earthquake as a result of our experiences with the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake.
2 Develop and utilize diverse human resources
Significant efforts have been put into developing human resources with the production of a human resources development map and the organization of training to develop global human resources. We have worked hard on the two aspects of Work Style Reform and Health and Productivity Management to encourage a wide range of people to make the best use of their abilities and to build environments in which people are able to work with energy and enthusiasm.

3 Enhance value chain management from the viewpoint of CSR
In response to the growing global trend in recent years towards “sustainable procurement” throughout the supply chain, we revised the Fujifilm Group Procurement Policy in March 2015. At the same time, our Requests to Suppliers was announced, and we assessed the progress made by suppliers in promoting CSR and build closer relationship with our suppliers.
CSR Activities Promoting throughout the Value Chain
The Fujifilm Group established its Charter for Corporate Behavior, Code of Conduct, and Approach to CSR and promotes CSR through sincere and fair business activities. In order to expand and strengthen our activities, it is necessary to collaborate all processes, procurement, manufacturing, transportation, use, and disposal throughout the value chain.
In March 2015, the Fujifilm Group revised the Procurement Policy and presented the “Requests to Suppliers” in an effort to enhance value chain management. We will keep recognizing social effect through our business activities and our responsibilities, and aspire for establishing a sustainable value chain with mutual growth through understanding and implementation of these activities not only within the Group but also by our business partners.
Towards the New CSR Plan, SVP 2030
Although business activities make a positive contribution to society, they also have adverse impacts. In recognition of the Fujifilm Group's effect on and responsibility toward society, we are reaffirming our vision of an “open, fair and clear” business culture within the Group to strengthen its business foundation.
Improving and expanding these activities throughout the value chain to achieve “sustainable procurement” by strengthening our cooperation with our suppliers both from the environmental and social aspects. We will continue to work to strengthen governance and build work environments and systems that enable each of our diverse body of employees to work with safety and enthusiasm.
