Restoring and Preserving Biodiversity

Targets and Results for Fiscal 2012

Assessing ecosystem impact using WET testing

Konica Minolta has been implementing various initiatives, mainly at its production sites, to restore and preserve biodiversity. The Group has made meeting the standards of its Guidelines for Biodiversity Preservation a requirement for attaining Level 2 certification under the Green Factory Certification System, which specifically requires consideration of water resources, consideration of wastewater, and proper management of greenery at factories. As part of these initiatives, the Group is conducting ecosystem impact assessment tests based on bioassays to verify the impact of wastewater on the surrounding ecosystems.
