As the Fujifilm Group continues to enhance its business fields, the number of Group companies is also increasing. It is important for each Group company to understand the management policy of the entire Group, and become familiar with the other businesses within the Group in order to make the best of the wide-ranging technologies and networks that the Group owns. In this way, we will be able to exert a high level of competitiveness in our business. For this reason, we started a new Group magazine targeted at all the Fujifilm Group company members in Japan in April 2016. We hope that each employee will deepen their understanding of our Group management approach, business direction, the individual business aims, and strengths of each Group company and thereby reinforce their sense of cooperation that can lead to the creation of new value.

Meetings with human right experts from around the world.

In September 2016, Fujifilm participated in the 2016 Business and Human Rights Conference in Tokyo, hosted by Caux Round Table Japan (co-hosted by Institute for Human Rights and Business, etc.), and held individual meetings with human right experts from across the world. We sought opinions and advice from these experts on our Group CSR procurement activities including the aspect of employees' human rights. We received recognition of the CSR activities focused on SDGs, and advice on identifying concrete human rights issues within the supply chain and related remedies for suppliers.

Fujifilm valued these opinions and has already conducted a potential risk assessment within the supply chain. We plan to incorporate such opinions into the human rights policies that we are currently developing.

Outline of Activities in FY2016: Respect for Human Rights

Fuji Xerox Forms Partnership with Yokohama National University to Activate the Local Society

Yokohama city and its prefecture, Kanagawa, have both aspects of the city and rurality. Therefore, in addition, these areas also need human resource development for both issues. these areas have two issues to address: one is the further development of urban business activities, and the other is the revitalization of rural communities. To collaborate on the two aspects of these issues, Fuji Xerox and Yokohama National University entered into a comprehensive partnership agreement. Yokohama National University is focusing on fostering human resources who can contribute to the sustainable development of rural areas and those who can actively work in globalizing society. At the same time, Fuji Xerox is working on resolving issues in rural communities through the company's services and human resources, as well as through their exclusive interactive communication technologies.

Under this partnership, Yokohama National University and Fuji Xerox will utilize Minami-Ashigara Mirai Zukuri College, an area revitalization project that Fuji Xerox had already started under a collaboration with the municipality of Minami-Ashigara City, Kanagawa Prefecture. The aim is to revitalize the economy, promote social activity, and encourage new business centered around the city. Fuji Xerox has a track record of problem solving in rural communities through establishing close communications and partnerships with various stakeholders. In this case, by liaising with university students, researchers, and private companies, we can further activities to accelerate revitalization of this rural area and thereby foster the next generation of human resources.

Lecturing on Practical Environment Risk Assessment Techniques to Local Companies

In November 2016, an environmental conservation officer in the Fujifilm Kanagawa Factory gave a lecture on the theme of Case Study of Creating and Implementing Environmental Risk Assessment Techniques in a Pollution Control Manager Followup Training Program hosted by Kanagawa Environmental Conservation Association. This lecture followed a strong request from the secretariat of the association, who believed that Fujifilm's efforts should be more widely known among other companies as example which is important and can be applied to other companies. The lecture was attended by about 120 people of pollution control managers/supervisors from companies in Kanagawa Prefecture. The lecture introduced a series of small and steady actions taken in Fujifilm to prevent chemical substance leakage, and was wellreceived by the attendants. We also learned that many companies face exactly the same kind of problems as we do.

As a member of the local community, the Fujifilm Group discloses information about our environmental conservation activities and offers an opportunity to ask for opinions from the residents of communities in each area. We continue to seek more efficient environmental preservation methods by sharing information on our activities and maintaining close communications with residents and companies in the local community.
