Waste reduction

Basic approach

As a manufacturing company, the Fuji Oil Group believes that it should strive to reduce waste generation. Such efforts will lead to efficient use of the materials and energy resources necessary for business activities, in turn lead to lower CO2 emissions, water usage, etc., thus contributing to environmental conservation. We also recognize the importance of working to reduce food waste as a food manufacturing company. In such efforts, we are promoting the extension of best-before dates and food waste recycling.

Target Result Evaluation
Maintain 99.8% or higher until 2030 99.33% Not achieved

In FY 2018, the amount of waste discharged by Group companies in Japan was 19,742 tons, up 6.5% from the previous fiscal year. Waste discharge per unit of production increased by 4.9% from the previous fiscal year. These results are due to the disposal of products damaged by the Northern Osaka Prefecture Earthquake and heat-insulating materials for tanks fallen off during Typhoon No. 21. In FY 2018, the amount of waste discharged at Group companies outside Japan was 23,222 tons, down 15.6% from the previous fiscal year, and the amount of waste discharge per unit of production fell by 16.3% from the previous fiscal year.

Food recycling initiatives

Group companies in Japan are working to reuse food waste pursuant to the Food Recycling Act.
The amount of food waste generated was approximately 32,332 tons in FY 2018, down approximately 605 tons from the previous fiscal year.
The recycling rate decreased by 2 points from the previous year to 97.5%. This is due mainly to the disposal of products damaged in warehouses during the Northern Osaka Earthquake.
For the food Industry, the Act sets a target of 85% reuse or higher of recyclable food resources. The Fuji Oil Group achieved a 97.3% or more since it first set a target in FY 2007 and will continue to maintain it. We will continue our efforts to maintain this level in the future.
