Basic Approach

According to the latest report from the United Nation Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), it is likely that temperatures will increase by approximately 4℃ by 2100 without additional mitigation and CO2 emissions continue to rise. Global warming is becoming ever more serious and remains as one of the most important issues to address across the world. The water risk is another serious issue in focus. The Fujifilm Group aims to help resolve these environmental challenges through changing our working styles and products towards low environmental impact, including highly functional materials utilizing applied photographic film development and production technologies.

Climate change and sustainable energy usage are issues listed in the SDGs. The Paris Agreement concluded in COP21 also stated restricting any global temperature rise this century to below 2℃ compared to pre-industrial levels, as a long-term international target. To achieve this target, it is important to expand renewable low-carbon energy use in power generation, along with energy-saving measures through diverse technological innovation, and by encouraging behavioral change in our life.

SVP2016 Review

We have achieved most of the periodical targets for the three Priority Issues.

1 Global warming countermeasures

For the target of “Reduce CO2 emissions by 20 million tons by FY2020 (compared to 2005),” we have made significant progress by achieving 19,670 kilotons of avoided CO2 emissions and so we have come very close to achieving the target as early as FY2016. Major contribution contents to this achievement are a variety of environmental solutions in offices and other products including a high capacity data storage media (LTO magnetic tape) that uses next-generation magnetic Barium Ferrite particles (BaFe), SYNAPSE, the IT solution for medical clinics, energy-saving multifunction printer, and various eco solution at office.

2&3 Response to water problems and energy issues

A range of contributions has been made through providing and spreading highly functional films used as filtration materials and solar cell materials.

Towards the New CSR Plan, SVP 2030

We aim for further CO2 emissions reduction through the wider spread of the above products and the development and spread of new highly functional materials that lead to further CO2 emissions reductions. As for the water problems that are becoming more serious across the world, we are contributing to water processing technology through wastewater reduction from Graphic Systems business and water filtration towards our newly defined targets.
