About Konica Minolta

Giving Shape to Ideas

Responsible Supply
Chain

Basic Concept

Konica Minolta is committed to fulfilling its social responsibility not only in terms of its own products but also throughout the supply chain,* based on relationships of trust with suppliers.

Konica Minolta creates innovative products and services that contribute to society and pursues customer satisfaction under its management philosophy of “The Creation of New Value.”

Konica Minolta views the suppliers that provide and produce raw materials and parts, carry out distribution, and offer services as essential partners in its business activities. The Group strives to build strong partnerships with these business partners, based on fair and transparent transactions, with a commitment to the shared goal of providing innovative products and services in a timely manner to customers all over the world.

As a global company striving to get a trust from worldwide society, Konica Minolta pursues its CSR procurement with consideration for labor issues (human rights), ethics, the environment, safety and health throughout the supply chain, including at its suppliers.

Additionally, the Group is taking steps to address conflict mineral issues, seeking to prevent violations of human rights in conflict areas from which mineral resources used in products are sourced.
