FUJIFILM Holdings Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) has been selected for the first time for inclusion on the “Water A-List,” the highest level of recognition awarded to companies by the renowned international non-profit CDP in its survey of water resource management. 73 companies from around the world, including 12 Japanese companies, were included on the list. An increasing number of institutional investors use the results of the survey for their decisions on ESG (environmental, social, governance) investment.
- Developed two unique indices such as “Future Water Stress(*3)” and “Business Impact Based on Water Input Volumes” for evaluating water risk. Using these indices, the company created the evaluation matrix “Water Risk Map”, and utilized it for the stronger management of water risk.
- Introduced the Water Footprint Method into the product development process in order to evaluate the volume of water usage for not only Fujifilm’s business but for the businesses of the company’s suppliers throughout the entire product life-cycle including raw materials procurement to further strengthening risk management. The company has also created business opportunities by actively disclosing information on water risk to customers with a high degree of interest in the issues.
- Supplied materials including highly functional filtration materials used for processing water in order to contribute to the resolution of international water resource issues.
