Opinions expressed at the dialogue meetings for the successful achievement of targets

In the long-term target of a 30% reduction in lifecycle CO2 emissions from products and services by fiscal 2020, Fujifilm Group has adopted the idea of reducing the absolute CO2 emissions throughout the lifecycle to contribute to prevention of global warming as a responsible company.

Participants at the dialogue meeting

On May 12, 2010, we held Stakeholder Dialogue 2010 on the theme of anti-global warming measures, inviting external experts. Through the meeting, we aimed to raise awareness of employees about the Fujifilm Group's long-term environmental target established based on the new idea of reducing total lifecycle emissions and encourage them share the target and pursue it in their daily operations. At the meeting, after an employee of FUJIFILM Holdings explained the long-term target, the activities of FUJIFILM and Fuji Xerox were outlined to participants. Then discussion began.

Participating external experts highly evaluated the Fujifilm Group's proactive anti-global warming measures. They also expressed their expectations for the Group, including cooperation with local communities and other companies, development of forward-looking measures and business, creation of innovative businesses, promotion of measures for the whole of society, and further education and clarification for employees and customers. For details, please refer to the next page.

At the meeting, we continued intensive discussion for three hours without a break and differences in the focus of effective anti-global warming measures were identified between FUJIFILM and Fuji Xerox. The discussion confirmed for me the fact that if two companies having such differences are able to achieve the target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 30% from the fiscal 2005 level by fiscal 2020, it shows that their products and services must actually be used by customers. I believe all participants were able to understand the importance of expanding environmental solutions through business. At the meeting I also made the following comments: specific measures seem to be just starting, there is room for more synergy effects between the two companies, and they need to communicate to the public what kind of society they are aiming to achieve in a more visionary manner. Finally I would like to thank the two guests and the employees participating in the meeting for actively expressing their opinions, which greatly helped me fulfill my role as facilitator at the meeting.

Creating a new market for the solution of environmental problems

I was most impressed to find out that the Group is proposing new work styles and lifestyles with low environmental impact, in addition to making efforts to reduce the environmental impact of its business operations. The Group is committed to creating a new market for the solution of environmental problems in cooperation with employees and consumers. I expect that the Group will successfully develop remarkable new innovative business on a global scale.

Expecting a lot from the proposal for new work styles

I would like to pay respects to the very ambitious policy that FUJIFILM and Fuji Xerox, which have fundamentally different business structures, have set as their common target, which is to reduce the lifecycle CO2 emissions of their products by 30% by fiscal 2020. At the dialogue meeting, I strongly felt the commitment of the Fujifilm Group to supporting social reform. In order to promote the anti-global warming measures as requested by the IPCC, it is necessary to review the work styles of individuals, and I expect that the two companies will propose new work styles through their products and services.
