Fujikura Group Global Environment Charter

We created the Fujikura Global Environment Charter in 1992 and revised it in April 2013. Specifically, we added a provision on the conservation of biodiversity to the Charter based on the recognition that we need to make our business activities compatible with the protection of the global environment.

Fujikura Group Global Environment Charter

Established: April 1992
Revised: April 2013

Foreword

With the rapid developments in science and technology, human civilization is making dramatic leaps forward, and we have become able to enjoy affluent lives.
On the other hand, however, we have seen progress in environmental destruction on a global scale, such as global warming, destruction of the ozone layer, acid rain, depletion of rainforests, desertification and marine pollution, and we have reached the stage where the existence on the earth not only of mankind but of life itself is in serious peril. Increasingly complex and diversified social systems are deeply involved with these global environmental problems, and corporate activities are undeniably one of the major factors behind these problems.
At Fujikura Group we are strongly aware that our operations are closely related to the global environment, and are making the utmost effort to protect the global environment.

Basic Philosophy

Fujikura Group is expanding its basic policy of "establishing affluent and cheerful lifestyles through the efforts of all employees of the Fujikura Group" on a global scale, and is committed to company-wide activities to protect the earth as one of management's top priorities.

Action Guidelines

In all areas of corporate activities, each individual must act giving priority to conserving the global environment.

In fiscal 2012, we established the Fujikura Group’s guidelines on biodiversity conservation as a new initiative in our environmental activities, and also revised the Fujikura Group Environment Charter for the first time in 13 years to add a provision on biodiversity.

Moreover we held a stakeholder dialogue meeting on the environment, inviting a customer, a professor and an expert to participate; they kindly have feedback and recommendations in their respective capacities. We also conducted surveys on living creatures at the Sakura Plant and other sites as part of our localized environmental activities and held a seminar on biotopes in the Fujikura-Kiba Millennium Woods. We at the Fujikura Group are thus working to conserve biodiversity while steadily conducting environmental management activities, including the management and treatment of wasted water and gases.

System to Promote Environmental Activities

System to Promote Environmental Activities

The overall environmental conservation activities of the Fujikura Group are managed by the Environmental-Site Working Group under the Group CSR Committee. The Environmental-Site Working Group is responsible for the discussion and resolution of issues related to the Group's environmental management. Specific activities of the body include setting annual and medium-term goals, formulating plans according to the set goals and monitoring the progress of the implemented plans. For addressing priority themes, special teams which support the planning of measures and ensuring implementation of the measures across the Group, etc., are organized under the Working Group as necessary.

Fujikura Group ECO-PASS environmental information collection system

Fujikura is committed to identifying its energy use and waste generation amounts as well as the use of chemical substances in its business operations, in order to clarify related problems and make improvements to reduce its environmental impact. To this end, we have been collecting and managing environmental data from each factory and office in the Fujikura Group.

Last fiscal year we launched the Fujikura Group ECO-PASS system to increase the efficiency of environmental data collection.
In order to encourage the sharing and analysis of the collected information across the Group to further reduce our environmental impact, we have "visualized" the information, including data about our environmental impact and the results of our environmental activities.
