CSR Activities in China (Sustainability Report 2008)

Report on CSR activities at Chinese sites (Summary)

In March 2006, Fujifilm analyzed the status of CSR activities(*) in the 37 Group companies in Japan and overseas based on a CSR selfcheck sheet and identified CSR issues that should be addressed according to specific regional characteristics and business structures. In the two years since the Group shifted to a holding company structure in October 2006, the business structure of the Fujifilm Group has undergone a significant change due to the promotion of structural reforms and other efforts. Group companies in China have particularly experienced a dramatic expansion in organizational scale and number of personnel along with the greater economic development of China. Against this background, FUJIFILM Holdings conducted a survey in May 2008 to determine the progress of CSR efforts in major Group companies operating in China. Based on this survey, we report the CSR efforts of individual companies along with their corporate profiles and messages from their top executives.

  • * CSR activities in eight fields: governance and compliance; personnel, employment and nurturing the next generation; occupational health and safety and disaster prevention; risk management; resource procurement; response to customers; environmental preservation; and social contribution.

Step 1 Information gathering

The CSR self-check sheet was distributed and an outline of CSR activities determined based on the responses. The CSR Self Check—created based on the Supplier Self-Assessment Questionnaire (created by EICC), Supply-Chain CSR Deployment Guidebook (created by JEITA) and others—consists of six fields: environmental management, occupational health and safety, employment and human rights, procurement, personnel training and social contribution.

Step 2 Field survey

Based on the responses to the CSR Self Check, we conducted top-level interviews, interviewed personnel at the worksite, reviewed documents and visited sites (environment-related facilities, fuel / chemical substance management / storage facilities, work areas, and health and recreation facilities).

Step 3 Exploration of CSR promotion measures

We will consider CSR promotion measures based on Steps 1 and 2 in the latter half of fiscal 2008.

Environmental management and occupational health and safety management are conducted at a level equivalent to that of factories in Japan. Therefore, no corrective actions are urgently required at this time. In response to the Labor Contract Law that went into effect in China in January 2008, all companies are working to revise company regulations and provide manager training to manage working hours and so on. The level of effort in regard to social contribution and supplier management vary depending on the company, while common challenges among these companies are personnel development and lowering the turnover rate. There are some cases, however, in which the turnover rate has been effectively reduced by enhancing training opportunities and utilizing volunteer activities to increase employees' sense of belonging. FUJIFILM Holdings will encourage application of these best practices. Furthermore, while gaining first hand understanding of their current CSR activities, FUJIFILM Holdings will support companies with operations in China to promote CSR initiatives through active communications both inside and outside the Group.
