Fujifilm Rewarded Certificate of Environmental Accomplishment

As part of Fujifilm's ongoing commitment to sustainability, we participate in the Shred-it shredding and recycling program. In 2012 our employees efforts resulted in a reduction of paper usage which saved 80.70 trees from destruction. At Fujifilm Canada we believe continued efforts by all our employees will result in incremental improvements in our sustainability efforts.

Fujifilm Honored with Twenty I3A Safety Excellence Awards

"These I3A awards represent a validation of our hard work, efforts and deliberate planning to protect all our Fujifilm employees as well as our facilities.

Keeping everyone in a safe, yet productive environment is critical to building sustainable business."

Fujifilm's facilities throughout North America were recognized with a total of twenty awards by the International Imaging Industry Association (I3A) for demonstrating the highest levels of safety performance and leadership. The not-for-profit I3A represents nearly all leading and emerging imaging companies, and is the largest imaging industry group worldwide. Fujifilm won seventeen (17) Safety Excellence Awards; plus three of the four “Best in Class” Awards for the safety performance at its Mississauga, Ontario; Portland, Oregon; and Valhalla, New York facilities.

The "Best in Class" awards recognize the companies with the safest workplaces, as determined by injury and illness case rates for the year, in four different areas: manufacturing, warehousing, R&D/administrative, and photo finishing. The company in each category that meets all the I3A Safety Excellence Awards Program criteria and has the lowest OSHA Recordable Incidence (ORI) with the most hours worked during the calendar year is recognized as being best in its class among I3A member companies. This year, Fujifilm’s Warehouse in Ontario, Canada, Photo Services facility in Portland, Oregon, and R&D/Administrative facility in Valhalla, New York were acknowledged with three of the four “Best in Class” awards.

Fujifilm Takes Home GOLD at Environmental Printing Awards 2010

Fujifilm continues to build upon its commitment to environmental sustainability with two GOLD awards at the annual PrintAction Environmental Printing Awards. Fujifilm won in the Most Environmentally Progressive Hardware technology category for our LH-PJ plate with FLH-Z processor & EcoPro effluent treatment system. Our second GOLD was in the Most Environmentally Progressive Process with our Waste Landfill methane diversion project used to power our plate manufacturing process.

Most Environmentally Friendly Progressive Hardware GOLD
From production to press room the LH-PJ plate with FLH-Z processor & EcoPro effluent treatment technology makes an impressive environmental statement.

The Fujifilm FLH-Z processor is designed to dramatically reduce plate development chemistry consumption to lowest levels of the plate developer and manages (without human intervention) chemistry replenishment to maintain consistent development results.

The built in conductivity enhancement technology also automatically adjusts conductivity levels that allows for 2 months or 2,000 square meters of plates to be developed between chemistry changes. In contrast to users required to make changes at 1000 sq meters or at 1 month or less using competitive equipment.

The chemistry that is used fully dissolves the plate coating resulting in a no sludge build up in the processor. In combination with automatic chemistry replenishment significantly reduce human labour intervention on the processor. The waste effluent is then automatically neutralized using the Fujifilm EcoPro system and waste effluent is added to the sewer system, again reducing employee handled to zero.

The EcoPro also allow for waste effluent from the FLH-Z processor is treated on site there is no onsite requirement to bottle, store or handle waste effluent, nor are their increase transportation costs to haul away effluent for treatment by a third party.
