Oldenburg on 9 December 2020. CEWE presented its Supplier Sustainability Award for the first time. The award is intended as an incentive, to raise awareness, to learn from each other and to pursue joint projects. A total of 300 suppliers were interviewed and examined by CEWE.

CEWE’s long standing partner Fujifilm Europe B.V. received the CEWE Supplier Sustainability Award in the “large enterprises” category.

“Sustainability is one of CEWE’s core values and it is rooted deeply in our DNA. We strive to reduce CO2 wherever possible and to improve our environmental balance. However, concerning the materials we use, we also have to rely on our suppliers. We are dedicated to long-term relationships with our business partners, and we expect them to also show a high level of commitment to the issue of sustainability.” CEWE’s Purchasing Department has developed the Supplier Sustainability Award, in order to acknowledge those companies that stand out even now, and that go far beyond the expected standards. The winners were chosen by a committee of six experts.

Business partners Fujifilm and CEWE are honoured for their outstanding commitment to sustainability.
The committee was especially impressed with the joint product development project of Fujifilm and CEWE for creating FSC® (C136191) certified photographic paper. The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) defines standards for sustainable forest management. FSC certification had long been a standard feature of the classic paper used by CEWE. The two companies have now succeeded to close this gap for another core product, while also setting a new industry standard. “We share the same values with CEWE and are very happy to be able to promote sustainable photo products by CEWE with our Fujifilm products.” Says Toshi Iida, President of Fujifilm Europe about winning the Award.
