SDGs

We have established an internal SDGs Promotion Committee
to establish and work on achieving priority goals.

Fujiya Hotel was established in Hakone Miyanoshita as Japan’s first full-scale resort hotel in 1878.
To ensure the hotel continues over the next 100 years, we conducted major earthquake resistance improvement works lasting approximately two years from 2018.
In addition, we are implementing the following environmental initiatives geared to achieving the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) proposed by the United Nations.

Electricity and
Energy Saving

  • By introducing LED lighting and air conditioner controls, turning employee computers to energy saving mode, and taking other measures, we are striving to reduce energy usage, meet reduction quotas and achieve goals.
  • In 2020, we switched to a low emission boiler, thereby greatly reducing the environmental impact.
  • To ensure that hotel guests driving electric vehicles can stay our hotel without fear of range anxiety, we have installed electric vehicle charging stands based on the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry’s Next-generation Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Establishment Promotion program”.
    Porsche Destination Charging Station: 2 units (8kW ordinary charging)
    Panasonic charger: 1 unit capable of charging 2 vehicles
