Efforts by Theme 6. Biodiversity

Potential impact of business activities on biodiversity

The Fuji Oil Group recognizes that due to the nature of being a food manufacturer, its raw material procurement and production activities can have an impact on biodiversity. Specifically, there is a possibility that reduced biodiversity due to the raw materials (agricultural crops) in its production areas, water discharged as a result of its production activities or other factors may impair biodiversity in its operating areas. We recognize these effects and are making efforts to reduce negative impacts on biodiversity.

Measures to Conserve Biodiversity

Procurement focusing on biodiversity

The Fuji Oil Group, which uses agricultural produce as key raw materials, believes that it should actively promote efforts to conserve biodiversity. As for palm oil, whose production causes biodiversity loss due to farmland reclamation, we declare our commitment to the goal of sourcing deforestation-free palm oil with our Responsible Palm Oil Sourcing Policy. We also participate in an educational support project for smallholders, through which we work to improve productivity in the abundantly biodiverse Kinabatangan district of Sabah, Malaysia, with the goal of preventing deforestation for farmland reclamation and chemical pollution of rivers, thereby contributing to the conservation of biodiversity.

Continuous implementation of Hannan-no-Mori Project

The Hannan Business Operations Complex has implemented the Hannan-no-Mori Project to restore satoyama forest in the Kaminogo area of Izumisano City (Osaka Prefecture), under the Adopt-a-Forest system. In this project, Fuji Oil Group employees continued to participate in forest development activities such as forest maintenance in FY 2017. In addition, since March 2018 we have been participating in the creation of a park in the Izumisano hillside green belt in Osaka Prefecture. At the site, local volunteers, Osaka Prefecture and the company work together to engage in forest development, bamboo forest management and other work and conduct activities to cultivate park greenery.

*Adopt-a-Forest system: A system aimed at supporting participation by the general public in forest development through mediation by Osaka Prefectural Government between companies and forest owners.
