Expansion of Environmentally Friendly Products

Environmentally Friendly Products

The Fujikura Group conducts lifecycle assessments of its products to increase their environmental performance. Specifically, we assess the eco-friendliness of our products throughout their lifecycle during the planning, development and design stages.

Our target is to register at least 60 environmentally friendly products every year.

Green Products

 Total registrations of environmentally friendly products

Green Mind Products

The Green Product Management Committee screens the lifecycle assessment check sheets submitted by the business divisions and registers products that meet the predefined criteria as Green Mind Products.

The lifecycle assessment check sheet was established in 2011 and has been updated regularly ever since. The Green Product Management Committee is chaired by a representative from R&D divisions and comprised of members selected from each company.

In fiscal 2018, 61 products were registered as Green Mind Products. The number of products registered during the period up to fiscal 2018 totals 597.

Green Products

Under our Green Product certification system, which we have established to foster the development of more environmentally friendly products, we certify products that are even more conscious of the environment than Green Mind Products as Green Products. We label Green Products with the Green Project mark and approve the use of this mark according to the rules for ISO 14021 Type II environmental labeling.

In fiscal 2018, there were no violations of information or labeling of products and services nor regarding marketing or communication.
