Efforts by Theme 5. Reduction of packaging materials
Measures to reduce the environmental impact of packaging materials
The container and packaging of a product plays the important role of protecting the product’s quality so that it reaches the customer in safe and secure condition. However, it is also a fact that most packaging become waste after use by customers.
Fuji Oil Co., Ltd. promotes the “3Rs” (reduce, reuse, recycle) for containers and packages as its basic approach. Among these three measures, we are strengthening measures to “reduce.” For cardboard, we are promoting lighter and thinner packaging corresponding to the appropriate strength for the weight of the contents and temperature range of use, and reducing labels and mounts by switching from pasting on labels to a direct printing method using an inkjet printer. Other measures we are promoting include switching from small containers to large-capacity containers that can be reused. We will continue to proactively work to reduce environmental impact in the production and transportation process by reducing packaging materials.
