Welcome to the interview series ‘Toshi’s Guest’ where Toshi Iida, President and Managing Director of Fujifilm Europe, welcomes different guests from the company. He meets and interviews interesting women through Fujifilm Europe while learning about their soft skills, goals, and roles as professionals, leaders, mothers, and women.
The new year starts with Annika Schulz as an interview guest, who is Internal Communication and Branding Officer for Fujifilm Europe.
Starting her career as a dual student at Fujifilm, Annika has constantly evolved and becomes now an important member of the European Coproparte Communication team, based in Ratingen. Her out-of-the-box thinking, big passion and enthusiastic energy have led her to achieve some great achievements.
But for Annika, there is nothing such as great success. She aims to be the best version of herself every day and for the maximum outcome of every project also if this means walking the extra mile.
For the third consecutive year, from August to December 2022, Fujifilm has invited the whole of Europe to share new photographs, taken with a smartphone or digital camera, for the online exhibition Printlife@home 2022 – Print Your Photos. Share your life. 16,000 photos from 16 countries were collected, capturing a special memory and sharing a unique story.
Printlife@home celebrates not only the loveliness of printed photography, but also the sharing of photographs with friends and loved ones that has become a regular part of our lives. The photos have the power not only to preserve memories of events but also to add color to our everyday lives, to enrich our lives and occasionally to move people. Moreover, photography has the power to inspire many people and could lead to a change for the better.
More than 1,100 photos entered into printlife@home and have been showcased in the biggest European on site photography exhibitions: in September at The Photography Show in the UK and in October at the Salon de la Photo in Paris and at PHOTOPIA in Hamburg. Hence, continuing Fujifilm’s 16-years history of hosting public photo exhibitions. These on-site photography exhibitions were attended by more than 55k visitors, who had the opportunity to see and experience printlife@home’s extensive photo gallery of unique shots and stories from all over Europe.
THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the Printlife@home2022 online exhibition. We hope to see you participate again next time!

2022 has been the year of renewing or building new office spaces for FUJIFILM in Europe with constructions in Germany, Spain and now also in the UK. In October 2022, Fujifilm officially opened ‘Fujifilm House’, our new UK headquarters in Bedford, which boasts more than 30,000 square feet of attractive working space, built with sustainability in mind.
Since 1983 Fujifilm UK’s operation shave been located on Bedford and only a short distance from the old building, the new one was constructed. However, there is one significant difference compared to the old building: SUSTAINABILITY. Sustainability considerations were integral to the new building’s design and the new site’s excellent BREEAM environmental rating underlines this point.
CDP – Carbon Disclosure Project – 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.
We are delighted that FUJIFILM Holdings has been named as an ‘A List’ in both climate change and water security. Since clean water and air are essential for the manufacturing of photographic film, which is the starting point of the Fujifilm Group, environmental conservation is fundamental to our business activities. We will continue to contribute to society through proactive efforts such as decarbonization, conservation of water resources and reduction of waste in cooperation with local communities and government to resolve environmental issues around the world.
