Environmental Management Concept

Expand business contributions by resolving environmental problems

Konica Minolta aims to be “a global company that is vital to society, bringing vision to reality,” and “a robust and innovative company, continually evolving and contributing to the sustainable growth of society and individuals.” This will allow Konica Minolta to realize its management philosophy of “the creation of new value.” Konica Minolta practices sustainability management that integrates efforts to help resolve social issues with corporate growth. With the understanding that sustainability initiatives are themselves management strategies, the company believes that their significance lies in integrating to a higher degree the effort for “supporting people to achieve their own purpose“ and “realizing a sustainable society” through its business activities. Konica Minolta aims to achieve further growth as a global company and to realize a sustainable society. To achieve this vision, it is necessary to identify social challenges as business opportunities and generate innovative solutions, which in turn will drive Konica Minolta’s own sustainable growth.
Konica Minolta's environmental management is based on the concept of growing existing businesses and creating new ones by helping to solve environmental problems such as climate change. The aim is to grow the company and become an enterprise that is vital to the world.

Creation of Shared Value with Stakeholders to Realize “Carbon Minus” Status

When working to overcome environmental challenges on a global scale, there is a limit to what can be achieved by just one company. This is why it is essential to expand the impact of environmental efforts by working with stakeholders such as suppliers, customers, and local communities.
Konica Minolta is working toward Carbon Minus status to reduce the environmental impact of society as a whole by collaborating with stakeholders, including business partners and customers.
For example, the company launched a digital environmental platform as a measure to collaborate with more companies. This platform is an ecosystem for sharing environmental knowledge, information and expertise to help raise environmental management efficiency for Japanese industry as a whole. Konica Minolta and the participating companies share and accumulate their environmental knowledge and expertise in order to co-create new value, thus improving the efficiency of their environmental management. Konica Minolta aims to make dramatic leaps in boosting the effect this ecosystem has in reducing the environmental impact of the broader society.
