Fujifilm recognised for climate action
Fujifilm has won a place on the CDP Climate Change A List, the highest level of acknowledgement for companies making efforts to combat climate change.
CDP, a global non-profit that has been voted the number one climate research provider by investors and whose annual environmental disclosure and scoring process is recognised as the gold standard of corporate environmental transparency, named 179 high-performing companies out of more than 8000 scored.
According to Fujifilm, it is promoting actions on climate change based on its strong belief that environmental conservation is at the core of its corporate activities. Its corporate social responsibility plan, Sustainable Value Plan 2030 (SVP2030), contains a number of actions to reduce CO2 emissions across the entire product life cycle, with the numerical target of “reducing CO2 emission across the entire lifecycle of Fujifilm products by 30 per cent by fiscal year ending March 2031 (FY2031/3) compared to the FY2014/3 level”.
In the fiscal year ending March 2019 (FY2019/3), Fujifilm had already cut CO2 emissions by 22 per cent over the FY2014/3 level, the company says; it also last January set a target for 50 per cent of overall purchased electricity to be derived from renewable sources by FY2031/3, and for zero carbon emissions in energies used by 2051/3 by purchasing 100 per cent of electricity from renewables.
The SVP2030 also aims to “contribute to reduction in CO2 emissions in our society by 50 million tons by FY2031/3”.
