September 4, 2017
Tokyo (September 4, 2017) - Konica Minolta, Inc. (Konica Minolta) has earned a Gold Level Recognition Medal in the EcoVadis 2017 sustainability ratings issued by EcoVadis of France. This is the second consecutive year that Konica Minolta has received the survey’s highest level of recognition.
EcoVadis researches and assesses suppliers operating in 150 procurement categories in 110 countries around the world. The categories include the environment, labor practices, fair business practices, and sustainable procurement.
Konica Minolta’s high rating in this year’s survey places the company in the top 1% of suppliers evaluated by EcoVadis.
Konica Minolta believes this outstanding rating reflects its corporate philosophy (see below), which drives all of its day-to-day business practices.
Today’s evolving society requires companies to take on the role of delivering both social value, by providing solutions to challenges faced by our customers and our world, and economic value, which results in corporate growth, while achieving sustainable growth alongside society. This process is also well-aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
To achieve this value, Konica Minolta has identified a number of material issues it must address on a priority basis: the environment, social innovation, customer satisfaction and product safety, responsible supply chain, human capital, and diversity. By addressing these issues, the company will provide solutions to social issues set forth in SDGs, and contribute to solving global environmental issues and improving quality of life.
