FUJIFILM Holdings Corporation announced that the Company has been named to the prestigious annual “CDP A List,” for its leadership in climate action.
CDP, originally known as Carbon Disclosure Project, is a global non-profit organisation that surveys corporate environmental disclosure on behalf of more than 740 institutional investors, with approximately 23,000 companies responded to the survey. The results of this survey are also used in the world’s leading Socially Responsible Investment Index (SRI Index), which evaluates corporate activities from an ESG (environment, society, and governance) perspective.
“As we celebrate our 90th anniversary, our commitment to preserving the environment remains ingrained in our organizational DNA which began with our first steps in manufacturing photographic film with clean water and air in Ashigara, Japan” said Teiichi Goto, President and Chief Executive Officer, Representative Director of FUJIFILM Holdings Corporation. “Moving forward, it is our unwavering responsibility to provide products and services needed by society while achieving lower carbonization of products and services, and also to develop and provide innovative solutions for a decarbonised society through the use of digital technology and other means.”
Fujifilm’s accomplishments towards decarbonisation:
- To speed up the implementation of decisions made by the company’s ESG Committee, which is chaired by the president, Fujifilm established the GX Committee as a subordinate organization to the ESG Committee, which is composed of managers from all business divisions, as well as development, production, and procurement departments. It manages the progress of environmental measures in each business area.
- The Fujifilm Group has decided to implement a virtual power purchase agreement to offset 100% of the company’s total electricity consumption, approximately 300,000 MWh/year, used in the United States and Canada from the second half of 2025, which is equivalent to avoiding annual CO2 emissions of approximately 90,000 tons, or approximately 9% of the Fujifilm Group’s total CO2 emissions in the fiscal year ended March 2023. In addition, Fujifilm will continue to reduce CO2 emissions globally, including plans to switch to electrify fuel-using facilities at its European sites and use renewable energy.
