FY2017 Efforts

Zero Emissions

The Fujikura group defines our zero emission activities as "a final amount of zero waste products emitted in the production process." Specifically, our zero emission plan is reducing the waste material produced while increasing the yield by weight (efficiency of materials in relation to manufactured goods) at production centers (reduce), reuse any possible materials (reuse), and find businesses that can use waste materials effectively (recycle).

Results of FY2017 Activities

Personal Cup/Bottle Promotion

With the slogan, "Becoming a people-friendly and environment-friendly business group," the Fujikura group promotes energy and material-saving activities at each company, workplace, and for each person. One of those efforts is the "Personal Cup/Bottle Promotion." It aims to stop people thoughtlessly buying plastic bottles or using paper cups. The campaign is promoted via the intranet CSR site of each workplace, and by encouraging individuals to register for the "Recommended! Personal Cup/Bottle" section. The campaign section is now in its 7th year thanks to this coordinated effort.
