Photographic film, which is the origin of the Fujifilm Group’s business foundation, requires a large amount of clean water and air in its manufacturing process. Since its establishment, Fujifilm has actively worked on conserving water resources in an environmentally considerate way, such as making efficient use of water and purifying wastewater generated from its factories.
For its commitments to tackling water security, FUJIFILM Holdings Corporation has achieved a place on the “CD Water Security A-List,” the highest level of recognition awarded in the internationally influential corporate survey on water resource management for two consecutive years. FUJIIFLM is one of a small number of high-performing companies out of nearly 12,000 that were scored.
Major initiatives on water security
- Reinforcing water risk management by creating the unique evaluation matrix “Assessment Map of the Impact of Water Resources on Company Business,” which is based on assessment of location in water stress region and business impact based on water usage volumes.
- Supplying products and services that are contributing to resolving water risks in society, including completely process-less thermal CTP plate for newspaper to eliminate the use of water at printing companies, and filtration materials used for treating water.
- Working with local communities to promote water resource conservation activities such as tree-planting campaigns in Inner Mongolia, China and Can Gio, Vietnam, and development of watershed protection forests in Kyushu, Japan.
- Reducing the environmental impact of local water waste treatment by sharing a large-scale wastewater treatment facility located at FUJIFILM Manufacturing Europe B.V. in the Netherlands with neighboring companies.
The Fujifilm Group remains committed to addressing water risks in the future and actively promoting information disclosure through CDP and other organizations, contributing to the establishment of a sustainable society.
