B2Run – We’re running for a good cause

Sometimes getting out o the office, doing something out of your comfort zone and just enjoying the time and activity together as one FAMILY is what we need.

That is exactly what we did at Fujifilm in Germany yesterday. Our colleagues from our European HQ Ratingen, from subsidiary in Willich and FUJIFILM Wako Chemicals Europe GmbH came together to participate in the B2Run Dusseldorf, Germany. Not only did we do something good for the team spirit and our bodies by taking part in the 6 km race, but also we did all that for a good cause.

Even though walking and running are environmentally friendly activities, the organization of such events still consumes fuel, electricity and heat. In order to make B2Run as Co2 neutral as possible, B2Run is planting one tree for each team that registered for the race. Additionally, for each participant €5 will be donated to DKMS gemeinnützige GmbH, and B2Run will also support a water power project in Uganda, Africa, to reduce the environmental impact of conventional energy sourcing. The project is the Bujagali hydropower plant on the Victoria Nile at Dumbbell Island, north of Jinja, Urganda. Among other things, it serves to improve the reliability and cost of electricity supply for Ugandan households.

An experience we have not been part of for the very first time. Back in 2019 we have also been participating in the B2Run. We can already say that this will not be the last time Fujifilm participates in this team building event.
