Fujifilm goes carbon neutral at major recycling site in China

Fujifilm says its eco-manufacturing site in Suzhou, China - which recycles multifunction printers - has become carbon neutral following the installation of hundreds of solar panels and a switch to renewable electricity.

“Fujifilm Eco-Manufacturing (Suzhou) which recycles used multifunction printers of FUJIFILM Business Innovation Corp., installed some 8,000 square meters of solar photovoltaic panels on site, enough to cover 90% of all electricity it uses,” said Teiichi Goto, Fujifilm’s president and CEO. 

“The company purchases electricity accompanied with renewable energy certificates to cover the rest of the electricity consumption to switch entirely to renewable electricity.”

In its climate action targets, Fujifilm is aiming to achieve net-zero carbon dioxide emissions from manufacturing by 2041 and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 50% across its entire product lifecycle from procurement of raw materials to manufacturing, transportation, use and disposal by March 2031, compared to FY2019.

In order to achieve these targets, Fujifilm launched a new Fujifilm Group environmental strategy, Green Value Climate Strategy. Fujifilm manufacturing sites in the Netherlands and Belgium already use renewable electricity for 100% of their electricity consumption.

“Fujifilm further accelerates its initiatives toward carbon neutral at manufacturing sites,” the company said. “The initiatives include the move to use renewable-derived electricity for all of electricity consumption at large scale biopharmaceutical manufacturing facilities in Denmark, which is currently expanding its production capability, and in North Carolina, USA, due to go operational in Spring 2025.

“The Fujifilm Group will continue to actively work on addressing climate-related issues to contribute to the realization of decarbonized society.”
