Reduction of CO2 emissions

Basic approach

Since the Paris Agreement came into effect, the importance of tackling climate change has been increasingly recognized around the world. Being a food manufacturer, the Fuji Oil Group emits CO2 as a results of its production processes,plant operations and energy use, and. As a member of society, we are committed to contributing to achieving the Paris Agreement. To this end, we will promote more aggressive efforts to mitigate climate change and prevent global warming. In the Environmental Vision 2030, we set CO2 reduction targets in line with Science Based Targets (SBT) approach. We aim to acquire the SBT certification in the future. We will further reduce CO2 emissions through further energy-saving activities on the production sites, and by promoting the introduction of energy-efficient equipment and the use of renewable energy.

Objective

24% reduction in total CO2 emissions by 2030 (Base year: 2016)

*Data not included from Industrial Food Service (one plant in Australia) and Blommer Chocolate Company (three plants in the U.S., one plant in Canada, and one plant in China), which became our group companies in July 2018 and January 2019, respectively.

In FY 2018, CO2 emissions at Group companies in Japan were 161,557 t-CO2, down 3.6% from the previous fiscal year. CO2 emissions at Group companies outside Japan were 277,097 t-CO2, down 8.7% from the previous fiscal year. Major contributing factors for these results are as follows:

  • Closure of Fuji Oil (Japan)'s Sakai Plant, and divestment of the Ishikawa Plant
  • Replacement of some freezers at Fuji Oil (Japan) with energy-efficient models
  • Replacement of some oil & fat production equipment at Fuji Oil (Japan) with energy-efficient models
  • Termination of production activities at Jirin Fuji Protein Co., Ltd. (China) in August 2018, following the transfer of equity
  • Improving the thermal efficiency of air conditioners, strengthening the heat insulation of fryers, and consolidating the steam piping at Shandong Long Teng Fuji Foodstuffs Co. Ltd. (China)
  • Integration of air compressors at Fuji Oil (Zhang Jia Gang) Co., Ltd. (China)
  • Installation of a solar hot water system at Fuji Oil (Zhaoqing) Co., Ltd., which commenced operation in July 2018
