Responsible Supply Chain

Konica Minolta's Approach

Background and Issues

The Konica Minolta Group recognizes that, around the world, many people are forced to work without respect to their rights or in deplorable conditions, and that children and foreigners (migrants) are particularly vulnerable. The Group also understands that companies must fulfill their social responsibilities, including making improvements in the areas of labor issues (human rights), ethics, the environment, and health and safety, not only related to their own products, but also along the entire supply chain involved in delivering these products to customers.

Supply chain: The series of activities involved in delivering a product or service to a customer, ranging from procurement and production to distribution and sales.


Konica Minolta aims to contribute to building a sustainable society that takes social issues such as human rights into consideration. To achieve this goal, we are working together with our clients along the entire supply chain to help solve these social issues. Through such initiatives, the business value of both Konica Minolta and our clients is improved, and by providing products that our customers can feel comfortable purchasing, we can ‘create shared value’.
