Konica Minolta's Approach

Background and Issues

Today’s increasingly urgent environmental challenges require society to use energy and resources more efficiently. There is a limit to the degree of environmental impact reduction that can be achieved solely by one company. Leading global companies should increase their positive contribution to global environmental preservation by expanding the focus of their activities to suppliers of parts and materials, throughout the entire supply chain.

Vision

Konica Minolta will work to make its production processes even more efficient while promoting the development and improvement of production technology, and to reduce both costs and environmental impact. The Group will also share its environmental technologies and expertise with business partners, and will work with them to reduce their environmental impacts. Konica Minolta intends to make significant contributions to protecting the environment throughout its supply chain.
