Release of New Products
In August 2020, we released ApeosPort C7070, C6570, C5570, C4570, C3570, C3070, and C2570. These products were ranked as "Gold" under the Fujifilm Group's Green Value Product Certification Program.
In the Asia-Pacific region, we began to recycle consumables instead of landfilling them. This has improved our resource recycling rate. We will continue to recycle waste and resources by observing laws and regulations of each country/region and valuing safety and hygiene, aiming to achieve the reduction of our environmental impact and maintain and improve nearly zero waste (≧99.5%).

Encouragement Prize Granted to IridesseTM Production Press in the 3rd EcoPro Awards
In December 2020, IridesseTM Production Press won the encouragement award in the 3rd EcoPro Awards, which was hosted by Sustainable Management Promotion Organization (SuMPO).The EcoPro Awards is a program in which awards are granted to products and services with excellent environmentally friendly features, as an initiative to help build a sustainable society.
The award was granted to IridesseTM Production Press in recognition of the following two points. One is the achievement of both high image quality and low environmental impact, which was enabled by combining the industry's first six-color print engine to be capable of printing images by using gold and silver toners under CMYK toners, with a unique color management system featuring improved reproducibility of metallic colors and toners that fuse quickly at low temperatures. The other point is the fact that development of this product commenced in relation to FUJIFILM Business Innovation's CSR activity of replicating ancient documents.
