Konica Minolta’s Initiatives for Socially Responsible Logistics
Pursuing socially responsible logistics practices by expanding the scope of CSR activities to logistics partners
In cooperation with DHL Supply Chain Ltd., Konica Minolta is working hard to ensure that partners contracted to provide logistics services are using socially responsible business practices. This initiative is conducted in cooperation with logistics partners to improve issues and strengthen measures in CSR-related issues in areas such as labor (human rights), ethics, safety and health, and environmental preservation. Through this initiative, the Group seeks to solve social issues while working together with logistics partners to increase Konica Minolta’s corporate value by ensuring that customers can purchase its products with peace of mind, knowing that CSR has been taken into account throughout the supply chain.*
