Potential impact of business activities on biodiversity
The Fuji Oil Group recognizes that the procurement of raw materials and productions processes linked to food anufacturing can have an impact on biodiversity.
There may be a decline in biodiversity in areas where our raw materials are produced (agricultural crops) due to farmland reclamation. In our operating areas, water discharged from production activities may affect biodiversity.
We strive to reduce the negative impacts on biodiversity in consideration with these potential impacts.
Measures to Conserve Biodiversity
Procurement focusing on biodiversity
The Fuji Oil Group, uses agricultural products as key raw materials, For this reason it believes that it should actively promote efforts to conserve biodiversity.
The production of palm oil 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 work to identify and reduce risks through the pursuit of traceability to mill, and engagement with suppliers.
We also participate in an educational support project for smallholders. In this way we work to improve productivity in the abundantly biodiverse Kinabatangan district of Sabah, Malaysia. The goal is preventing deforestation from farmland reclamation and chemical pollution of rivers, thereby contributing to the conservation of biodiversity.
For the Responsible Palm Oil Sourcing Policy and our support activities for small palm oil farmers, refer to the Sustainable Procurement section.
