At the Konica Minolta Group, we view CSR initiatives as synonymous with good management, and work as a Group to promote programs for realizing sustainable growth for society. It is critical that we demonstrate a commitment to doing what we must to remain an essential participant in world society and worthy of its support. From this standpoint, we are determined to fulfill our corporate social responsibility with respect to our various stakeholders, whether customers, business partners, shareholders and investors or others. Global environmental problems, meanwhile, are the most pressing concern that the Konica Minolta Group must address today. As a company in the manufacturing sector, devising ways to leverage our own diverse technologies to contribute to the environment is an important challenge. Furthermore, we recognize that our clearest social responsibility is to help realize a sustainable world and society through technological innovation. To this end, we strive to create products and services that assist in global environmental preservation.
