Efforts by Theme 1. Reduction of CO2 emissions
See the Environmental Management section
Group Companies in Japan
In FY 2017, CO2 emissions at group companies in Japan were 167,016 t- CO2, a decrease of 1.7% from the previous fiscal year. CO2 emissions per unit of production＊ increased by 2.4%. Efforts to reduce electricity consumption through a revision of the air compressor system and a decrease in production volume were factors that decreased emissions. However, the impact of a decline in production efficiency due to the lower production volume and an increase in product changeovers resulted in an increase in emission per unit.
Unit: CO2 emissions per ton of production volume
Group Companies outside Japan
In FY 2017, CO2 emissions from Group companies outside Japan were 324,066 t- CO2, a decrease of 5.0% from the previous fiscal year. We implemented the following as measures to reduce CO2 emissions.
- June 2017: PALMAJU EDIBLE OIL SDN. BHD.(Malaysia) renovated its former facility as a new high-efficiency facility.
- November 2017: Fuji Oil (Zhang Jia Gang) Co., Ltd. (China) converted some boilers from diesel to gas.
- December 2017: PT. FREYABADI INDOTAMA (Indonesia) converted its boilers from diesel to gas.
Third-party Verification of CO2 Emissions
For a more accurate understanding of its CO2 emissions, the Fuji Oil Group received its first verification by a third party in April 2018. Through the verification, we conducted a review of our method for obtaining activity levels and CO2 emission factors. As a result, CO2 emissions by group companies in Japan were 167,584 t- CO2 and CO2 emissions by group companies outside Japan were 303,415 t- CO2. During the current fiscal year we are promoting initiatives to further increase the accuracy of our figures and will reflect these figures in future CO2 reduction activities.
