CSR Indicators regarding Engagement with Global Environment

Overview of our Environmental Impact

Fuji Xerox and its affiliates have been making efforts to grasp material flow for reducing environment burden.

The scope includes Fuji Xerox consolidated. (The scope of chemical substances includes only Japan)

  • Note 1 Parts replaced during maintenance and some of the consumable supplies are not included in the resources input data.
  • Note 2 Energy input for operating copying machines and printers. Total power consumption (estimate) has been calculated by assuming that machines produced in fiscal 2013 will be in operation for five years.

Details
  Notes on fiscal 2017 performance Goals/challenges
Note 1 We helped customers reduce CO2 emissions at their offices by a total of 3,792kt-CO2, up about 65kt-CO2 year on year. This increase is attributable to increased sales of the solutions and services that highly contribute to emission reduction. We aim to help customers achieve business growth while also reducing their CO2 emissions through providing solutions and services that support their business reforms and through the provision of extremely eco-friendly products with energy-saving technology.
Note 2 We continuously worked to save electricity, replace existing equipment with more energy-efficient equipment, and increase the efficiency of production processes to achieve the power saving target (a reduction of at least 15% from the fiscal 2010 level), which we have been pursuing since the occurrence of the Great East Japan Earthquake. Target for fiscal 2018: 156kt-CO2 or lower (at development and production sites in Japan and overseas) and 72kt-CO2 or lower (at offices in Japan and overseas)
Also in fiscal 2018, we will continue to introduce energy-saving equipment to development sites and review production processes, while conducting examinations for the development of energy-saving technologies and the introduction of these technologies to the production processes from a mid-and-long term perspective.
Note 3 We reduced CO2 emissions from our production and transportation activities through operational improvements. As a result the life-cycle CO2 emissions dropped from 1,356 kt-CO2 to 1,197 kt-CO2 year on year. Target for 2018: 1,380kt-CO2
The CO2 emissions are anticipated to increase due to the expansion of business. In order to reduce the total life-cycle emissions despite this increase, we will continuously foster work style reforms across the board and increase our operational efficiency.
Note 4 The number of products and components in which reused parts were used decreased, while the number of consumables were used expanded, leading to a decrease in the total amount. The amount of new resource inputs in manufacturing process by reusing parts tends to decrease due to the downsizing of products (which in turn reduces the amount of materials used in the same quantity of products). We will work to reduce the use of resources based on the 3R (reduce, reuse, recycle).
Note 5 The resource recycling rate for recovered end-of-life products reached 99.5%, which is a benchmark for "zero landfill" in Fui Xerox. Target for 2018: 99.5% or higher
While continuing to reach the resource recycling rate of 99.5% as the benchmark for "zero landfil", we will make further efforts to reduce our environmental impact.
Note 6 Fuji Xerox has focused on reducing water use at the manufacturing process since fiscal 2009, which accounts for the greatest portion of our water consumption. We will continue to work for the achievement of the target (2.59 million tons or lower).
Note 7 The amount of products, components and consumables in which reused parts were used expanded, leading to a year-on-year increase.  It has been 20 years since we began environmental accounting for the integrated recycling system and we need to consider whether we should continue to use the same indicator or introduce a new environmental indicator.

On June 4, 2015, the following four hazardous substances were additionally included in the restriction target: Di (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP); butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP); dibutyl phthalate (DBP); and diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP).
  • Note 4 REACH: Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals. This EU environmental regulation for chemicals was implemented in June 2007.

Method of Calculation
  1. The period covered is April 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018.
  2. The report applies to Fuji Xerox only.
  3. The environmental accounting is based on the Ministry of the Environment's 'Environmental Accounting Guidelines 2005.'
  4. The investment figures cover all depreciable environment related facilities acquired during the period.
  5. Regarding depreciation
    • The depreciation of environmental conservation facilities acquired in or before 2002 was calculated using the same accounting method as theretofore, whereas a three-year straight-line method of depreciation was used for facilities acquired in or after 2003.
    • The depreciation for wastewater treatment equipment and other pollution-prevention facilities covers all such assets that are in operation.
    • The deprecation for facilities related to global environment conservation and resource recycling covers all operating facilities acquired in or after 1995.
  6. For compound costs, the portion related to the environment is calculated by subtraction or proportional division.
  7. Only those economic effects that can be measured are included. (Expected effects based on estimates are not included.)

Environmental Accounting for the Integrated Recycling System

The environmental accounting balance of fiscal 2017 achieved a surplus following the previous year and further improved. This improvement resulted from the substantial expansion of reused consumables as well as from a substantial reduction in the cost of reuse and recycling activities. We will continue making efforts to minimize the use of new resources, striving to achieve zero waste.
