Environmental Initiatives

Basic Concept

In order to reduce our environmental load, and to fulfill our corporate social responsibility, the Fujibo Group has established an environmental policy and management strategy to resolve issues through our business. Our Group recognizes that global environment issues are of the top priority, and strive to achieve our corporate philosophy "contribute to the creation of a more prosperous and sustainable future for people, society and the global environment." Specifically, we are promoting efforts to reduce the environmental load at each of our business sites, including preservation of air and water environment, preservation of biodiversity, resource saving and reduction of waste, and proper management of chemical substances.

Environmental Policy

Recognizing the finite nature of resources and energy, the Group will strive for waste control, reuse, recycle, and make effective use of waste.

5. Establishment of an environmental management system

6. Dissemination and disclosure of environmental policies

We will widely disclose this environmental policy as well as inform all employees of the Group.

Priority Themes of Environmental Activities

The Fujibo Group incorporates the following items in its management strategy as priority themes of environmental conservation and focuses on achieving each initiative.

1. Reduction of greenhouse gas emissions

The Group emits only energy-related CO₂ and non-energy related CO₂ and does not emit gases such as methane or dinitrogen monoxide. We will continue to actively promote the shift to renewable energy to further reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

2. Efforts to reduce the environmental loads of water resources

At each of our business sites, we implement environmentally-friendly drainage treatment using the activated sludge process and in compliance with laws including the Water Pollution Control Act and the Sewage Act. We also are actively working on the efficient use of water resources.

3. Promotion of the reduction of industrial waste

We are promoting detoxification by incineration of industrial waste such as waste liquid (organic pollutant) generated in the production process. We process unstable chemical substances internally to enhance safety, and reuse some of them as energy resources as fuel for incineration equipment.

4. Reduction of the environmental loads of chemical substances

The Group properly manages the amount of PRTR substances (chemical substances that are subject to the PRTR) handled, released, and transferred. We are also working on activities together with our customers to reduce our environmental loads.

5. Efforts for resource recycling and energy saving in operation

With the understanding of the finite nature of resources and energy, we are working on energy-saving activities and also promoting the reduction, reuse and recycling of waste.

Overview of the Environmental Loads of Business Activities

The Fujibo Group monitors the amounts of energy and chemical substances used in the business activities, as well as the emissions of CO₂ and waste, to get an overall picture of the environmental activities each fiscal year to assess the achievement of our targets.
