Uniting our voices for World Cancer Day

“As individuals, as communities, we can and must come together and break down barriers. Closing the care gap is about fairness, dignity and fundamental rights to allow everyone to lead longer lives in better health.”

Dr Cary Adams, CEO of the Union for International Cancer Control

Today – 4th February – is the World Cancer Day, an initiative for building and advocacy initiatives that unite the cancer community to reduce the global cancer burden, promote greater equity, and integrate cancer control into the world health and development agenda.

This year’s theme is ‘closing the care gap’, and focuses on the lack of accessibility to health services faced by many people around the world.

Half the world’s population lacks access to the full range of essential health services. When it comes to cancer, many people are denied basic care, despite the fact that we live in a time of awe-inspiring advancements in cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment.

As a proud partner of World Cancer Day, we are committed to advancing the fight against cancer.

Working with healthcare providers, our mission is to address unmet medical needs, helping to provide access to earlier cancer detection and diagnosis.

Whether it’s providing solutions to help strengthen cancer care delivered in the community, or pioneering new partnerships to provide better access to remote screening and diagnostic services, we know that the earlier cancer is detected – the better the changes of survival.

We are extremely proud to be a partner of World Cancer Day, and to show our dedication to advancing the fight against cancer.“

Sustainable Solutions at the Heart of ‘Fujifilm House’

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.

FUJIFILM Holdings Named to CDP ‘A List’

We do not know where to start… We cannot describe in words how honored we are that FUJIFILM Holdings was named to CDP ‘A List’ for Leadership in Climate Action and Water Security.

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. 

Teiichi Goto, president and CEO, representative director of FUJIFILM Holdings Corporation

At Fujifilm, social responsibility has a great importance across the organization. As a result, Fujifilm’s corporate social responsibility plan, ‘Sustainable Value Plan 2030,’ was established, addressing climate change and natural resource recycling. We, the Fujifilm group, have set a target of reducing water usage of the entire Fujifilm Group by 30% compared to FY2013 level and working to conserve water resources through efficient water use and wastewater treatment within our manufacturing plants.

6th Anniversary of FUJIFILM Europe Business Service

Who actually counts time? We do! Already six years ago, the FUJIFILM Europe Business Service (FEBS) in Gdańsk was established as the EU Shared Service Center.

Back in 2016 FUJIFILM Europe GmbH outsourced part of its administrative activities to its European Shared Services Center in Gdańsk, Poland. Starting with only 30 employees, the so-called competence center now offers more than 130 dedicated professionals the opportunity for professional development.

FEBS performs operational activities for FUJIFILM Europe which HQ is located in Ratingen, Germany in particular in the area of Finance, Procurement and Human Relations as a European Shared Services Center.

President and Managing Director of FUJIFILM Europe GmbH Toshi Iida said about his last visit to the Gdańsk office:

“On site, I was able to get an impression of the collaborative office environment in which operational processes are carried out for FUJIFILM in Europe. It was interesting to learn directly from the young and dynamic FEBS team about their current and past years’ achievements. I’m really impressed by their NeverStop attitude.”


Of course, the team in Gdańsk had to share an office tour and an insight into their operations with all of us. Enjoy the video, and we guarantee you, it is a masterpiece. 😉
