As measures to prevent global warming, Fuji Xerox implements fuel conversion and introduces alternative energies. We also manage water resources in order to prevent resource depletion.
In addition to steadily implementing energy-saving activities, in order to further promote reductions in the amount of CO2 emissions, we at Fuji Xerox are actively involved in converting the energy source used mainly at our production sites, from oil (fuel oil, kerosene) to liquid natural gases (LNG) that have smaller amounts of CO2 emissions.
Upon progressing with efforts for fuel conversion, we significantly increased the percentage of LNG that make up the entire total of energy sources to 71% in 2005, as compared to 3% in 2001. Based on this, we were able to reduce the overall amount of CO2 emissions from 12.4kt-CO2 to 9.9kt-CO2.
In addition to energy-saving activities and fuel conversion, we are also making efforts at our production plants to introduce alternative energy that uses natural energy in order to reduce the amount of CO2 emissions.
Water is one of the valuable natural resources, and at Fuji Xerox, we are engaged in recycling and reducing the amount of water usage. In the future, to aim for achieving the goal for 2009, which is a target that is consistent throughout the company, we will make efforts to recycle and reduce the water usage.
