Responsible Supply Chain
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 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 superior products and services in a timely manner to customers all over the world.
Konica Minolta also recognizes that it is essential to promote CSR not just within its own operations, but also across its entire supply chain, to win the trust of society as a global company. This is why Konica Minolta promotes CSR activities on a Group-wide basis and requires its business partners to give consideration to labor issues (human rights), ethics, the environment, safety and health in their business operations. 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.
