Reduction of water usage

Basic approach

In the Fuji Oil Group, water is used as a raw material for some products, and to generate the steam used in the production process. Water is also used to grow agricultural crops which are used as raw materials for our products. As a member of society, we promote activities to reduce water usage. This, to use limited water resources in a sustainable manner.

In FY 2018, the total amount of water use at Group companies in Japan was 2,555,000 m3, down 5.8% from the previous fiscal year. This corresponds to a decrease of 7.3% in the water use per unit of production The total amount of water discharge at Group companies in Japan was 1,926,000 m3, down 2.2% from the previous fiscal year. The total amount of water use at Group companies outside Japan in FY 2018 was 2,163,000 m3, down 9.6% from the previous fiscal year. The amount of water use per unit of production in the year declined by 10.4%. Meanwhile, the total amount of water discharge was 1,037,000 m3, down 7.1% from the previous fiscal year. This was mainly due to the termination of production activities at Jilin Fuji Protein Co., Ltd. (China) in August 2018 following equity transfer.
