Engaging our expertise
and resources to develop sustainable practices

s a global contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO), we are engaging our global workforce to develop sustainable environmental practices. We endeavor to be true partners with our suppliers, customers and community to combat climate change. We are committed to leveraging our global footprint and expertise to accelerate necessary changes to align with our Science Based Target Initiative (SBTi) goal of 1.5 C in alignment with the Paris agreement. We recognize our current interim targets are a starting point. We are committed to constantly seeking ways to do even more, and our intent is to seek ways to meet the needs of the present without compromising future generations.

Focus Areas

We set our targets in alignment with Fujifilm’s Sustainable Value Plan 2030 (SVP2030) into three focus areas – Zero impacts from operations, Decarbonize the supply chain, and Be valued partners for customers. Sponsorship and support from our leadership team and a governance structure supports the teams’ efforts and ensures success.

Zero Impact From Operations

We will pursue zero environmental impacts in our operations globally* (Scope 1 & 2). To achieve this, we have set these goals:

  • Net zero GHG emissions from operations by FY2040*.
  • Convert to renewable electricity by FY2040 (adjusted for growth).
  • 30% more efficient potable water usage (relative to volume produced).
  • Reduce the amount of waste generated by 30% by FY2030 (relative to production volumes).

Achieving zero environmental impacts from operations may be challenging, but we will continually strive to achieve this status through focusing on continuous improvement, regular monitoring and adoption of sustainable initiatives to reduce our environmental footprint.

Decarbonize The Supply Chain

We will reduce GHG emissions across our supply chain (Scope 3).

  • Reduce supplier CO2 footprint via ongoing data-driven dialogue.
  • Reduce GHG emissions across our supply chain by 50% by 2030* (Compared to baseline, Scope 3, Relative reduction target, adjustable to accommodate growth).

Decarbonizing the supply chain is an ongoing process, requiring collaboration across industries, commitment from stakeholders and a holistic approach to sustainability. We will actively pursue decarbonization not only to contribute to our environmental goals, but also to help our partners achieve theirs.

Be Valued Partner For Customers

We will partner with our customers to reduce environmental impacts and improve transparency.

  • Contribute to a reduction in GHG emissions in society through advocacy and partnerships.
  • Engage customers in data-driven dialogue to align targets.
  • Reduce customer and product environmental footprints.

Through collaborative, mutually beneficial relationships with local and global partners we will amplify the impact of our sustainability initiatives and address ongoing challenges through communication and transparency.
