Overall View of the Environmental Impact
Outline of Activities in FY2015
The Fujifilm Group is working towards recognizing the social and environmental impact through the material flow system summarized resource inputs, emission and recycled volume from our corporate activities in all business process—from material procurement, manufacturing, transportation, to usage and final disposal. Understanding the entire picture of such impact caused by our activities throughout the value chain is helping us to accelerate our efforts towards realizing a sustainable society.
How to calculate greenhouse gas emissions in the Scope 3 Protocol –Establishment and operation of internal guidelines—
Investors and customers are increasingly urging us to calculate greenhouse gas emissions under the “Scope 3 (*1) Protocol.” In a bid to meet their demands, Fujifilm has established an internal guideline that provides a specific calculation method pursuant to the report entitled “Basic Guidelines on Accounting for Greenhouse Gas Emissions Throughout the Supply Chain” (jointly published by the Ministry of Environment and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry in March 2012). Using this method, we calculated the Scope 3 emissions for all 13 categories (including business trips and commuting) with the exception of the “investment” and “franchise” categories that are not relevant, and we have been working toward timely disclosure of the emission data.
*1 Protocol to calculate greenhouse gas emissions in the supply chain process. Scope 3 refers to the indirect emission of greenhouse gases, including procurement, transportation, consumption, and disposal of raw materials as well as business trips and commuting of employees but does not include direct emission by businesses (Scope 1) and indirect emissions through energy use (Scope 2).
※In FY2015, we have acquired independent assurance in the category 1 which is our largest volume of the emission among scope 3 Greenhouse Gas Protocol. The category 1 holds over 50 percentage of the whole scope 3 Protocol.
