Enhanced governance of affiliates by FUJIFILM Holdings America

The Environment, Health & Safety (EHS) Department of FUJIFILM Holdings America Corporation supervises all environmental conservation and occupational health and safety activities at Fujifilm Group companies in the United States.

In April 2007, this local holding company began sharing information proactively with employees in charge of environment and safety at each of the affiliates, in order to improve their EHS activity level, to make the environmental goals of all the affiliates consistent with the philosophy of the Fujifilm Group Green Policy, and to improve the cost efficiency of their EHS activities, while collecting important information for the Group. The EHS Department provides the affiliates with the following services. As a result, they have improved their environmental and occupational safety and health performance while also substantially reducing related management costs.
