Environmental Accounting

Overview of FY2017

Period of coverage

FY2017 (April 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018)

Scope

69 domestic companies in the Fujifilm Group (FUJIFILM Holdings, Fujifilm and 20 Fujifilm affiliates, Fuji Xerox and 46 Fuji Xerox affiliates)

Basic items

Objectives of environmental accounting

  1. To provide accurate quantitative information on volumes and economic effects to interested parties inside and outside the Group
  2. To provide numerical environment-related information useful for decision making by management and supervisors at the working level

Accounting method

Based on the “Environmental Accounting Guidelines (2005 edition)” published by the Ministry of the Environment in Japan.

  1. Depreciation is calculated in principle according to the straight-line method over a threeyear period.
  2. When costs include expenditures for both environmental and non-environmental purposes, the portion relating to non-environmental purposes has been excluded.
  3. Economic impact within the Group: The difference in value terms from the previous year in fines for polluting and usage of energy, raw materials, water, and other resources is accounted for, as well as the real impact of recovery, recycling, and other measures in value terms for the year in question.
  4. Economic impact outside the Group: The difference in value terms from the previous fiscal year has been shown for SOx, VOCs, and CO2. For recycling, the anticipated benefit in value terms has been shown for the year in question.
