Environmental

1. Promoting the concept of RealGreen – Real Energy efficiency: The FujiFilm group is working on various activities which contribute sustainably to the environment. The company has developed a Sustainable Value Plan 2016 which focuses on four priority fields in which the company can take action and help the environment by solving the social issues involved.

Thus by integrating social issues and business, new ventures could be opened like the Silver Amplification technology used for detection of influenza virus at an early stage, which aligns with the goal of resolving public health issues.

2. Undertaking initiatives for improved living: The focus of the company to solve social issues such as Extension of healthy life expectancy, Secure and robust infrastructure, Environment and address the consumer needs in these initiatives,is becoming a pillar of growth for the organization. The company needs to develop an environment of open innovation by synergizing its own core technologies and advanced technology outside the company, thus not limiting itself and proposing comprehensive solutions. Few key areas on which the company can focus are extension of healthy life expectancy, food, and agriculture and secure infrastructure.

3. Natural disasters impacting manufacturing operations: With relevance to the firm's manufacturing activities, natural or man-made disasters can affect its operating efficiency and given that the home country, Japan has a documented proof of natural disasters, it is imperative for the company to safeguard itself against such measures.

Due to the damages, the production was halted for two weeks but the impact on the supply was minimum.
