The Fujifilm Group’s approach to sustainability aims to promote the sustainable development of the society through sincere and fair business practices that reflect our Corporate Philosophy and Vision. At FUJIFILM Business Innovation Hong Kong, recognizing our role and responsibilities at the forefront of sustainability, we have incorporated in our management strategy with the fundamental sustainability values and actively address sustainability issues that are important to our stakeholders, including customers, employees, suppliers and transaction partners, future generations, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and local communities. We also ensure the accuracy and quality of our qualitative and quantitative sustainability data by using our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) management tool.
This report was prepared in response to the requirements for the disclosure of our business development plans and latest goals and initiatives. This is our 13th annual sustainability report that follows the Japanese financial year closing on 31 March.

FUJIFILM Holdings Corporation developed the long-term SVP2030 with the same target year as the Paris Agreement and the UN SDGs.
As a company operating overseas, FUJIFILM Business Innovation Hong Kong makes appropriate non-financial information disclosures as requested by our stakeholders, creates value for them and shares our business performance. Although we are not a listed company in Hong Kong and are not obligated to disclose our ESG data, we believe that sustainability disclosure is a valuable means of stakeholder engagement. We will continue to integrate sustainability into our business and comply with international and local requirements under the GRI standards through active disclosure. Please visit our company website for more publications and historical data on our sustainability performance.
In response to Fujifilm’s SDGs-aligned SVP2030, FUJIFILM Business Innovation Hong Kong undertakes a new materiality assessment when if possible to identify pertinent issues and evaluate their relevance to our business and stakeholders in accordance with the GRI standards and Accountability’s AA1000 standards.
Since publishing the first local Sustainability Report in 2010, we have been defining the material aspects according to the feedback collected from our annual Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) survey and international and Japanese standards and guidelines, including but not limited to the 10 Principles of the UN Global Compact, GRI and UN SDGs.
We have also invited our stakeholders to provide feedback on our performance in the ESG areas and share their views and sustainability challenges they experienced. We are pleased to learn that our leadership in ESG disclosures has been highly recognized by both our external and internal stakeholders. About 92% of our external stakeholders and 62% of the responding employees thought that our performance and the transparency of our ESG disclosures were “Good” or “Excellent”.
The feedback was then turned into a materiality matrix to reflect the importance of material issues raised by various stakeholders.
Issues in the “High-High” area of the Materiality Matrix Diagram are identified as material matters and will be discussed in the following sections.
