FUJIFILM Holdings Named to CDP "A List" for Leadership in Climate Action and Water Security

Fujifilm’s accomplishments towards decarbonization and water resource management:

  • Concluded a "comprehensive partnership agreement towards a decarbonized future" with the Tokyo Gas Co., Ltd., an energy supplier, and Minamiashigara City, a local government, to create a carbon neutral model in manufacturing using state-of-the-art decarbonization technologies such as methanation and hydrogen, as an initiative for the manufacturing stage of product lifecycle. 
  • Achieved carbon neutrality at its recycling site of multifunctional printers in China in July 2022 by switching entirely to renewable electricity.
  • Reduced the environmental impact of local wastewater treatment by sharing a large-scale treatment facility located at FUJIFILM Manufacturing Europe B.V. in the Netherlands with neighboring companies.
  • Achieved in-house treatment of all wastewater in manufacturing of sensor films for touch panels at the Ashigara site of the Kanagawa factory in Japan by establishing a technology to treat chemical substances contained in wastewater.
  • Provides products such as magnetic tape storage media that can significantly reduce carbon dioxide emissions*3 by reducing electricity consumption during data storage, and completely process-less thermal CTP plate for newspaper that achieves zero water consumption.
  • *1 CDP is a global non-profit that drives companies to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, safeguard water resources and protect forests. Working with over 680 institutional investors with assets of US$130 trillion, CDP promotes companies to disclose and manage their environmental impacts. FUJIFILM Holdings is not subject to CDP surveys on forest preservation because it does not run businesses related to agricultural commodities such as timber, palm oil, cattle and soy.
  • *2 "Procurement" of raw materials, "manufacture," "transportation," "use," and "disposal" of products.
  • *3 When saving 100PB (petabytes) of data for ten years, storing it on magnetic tape generates 95% less carbon dioxide emissions (approx. 2,400 tons) during the storage than doing so on HDD.
