For our planet’s future: tackling global environmental problems through our “Eco Vision 2050” plan.

  1. Reduce CO2 emissions throughout the product life cycle by 80% by 2050, compared to 2005 levels.
  2. Promote recycling and effective use of the Earth’s limited resources.
  3. Work to promote restoration and preservation of biodiversity.

In January 2009 Konica Minolta formulated Eco Vision 2050 as its long-term environmental vision. This vision guides Konica Minolta in the right direction to achieve its future objectives and fulfill its responsibility as a global corporation by contributing to a sustainable earth and society. Konica Minolta created the Medium-Term Environmental Plan 2015 as a milestone marker toward the goals outlined in its Eco Vision 2050.

Konica Minolta Environmental Mark

The Konica Minolta Environmental Mark expresses its commitment to promoting initiatives that reduce environmental impact in every phase of the business. The mark is used as a certification mark of products offering high environmental performance (Green Products Certification System) and environmentally considerate factories (Green Factory Certification System). Additionally, it will be used as a symbol of Green Marketing activities.   The three arches symbolize Green Products, Green Factories and Green Marketing — the core of our environmental activities. The arches rest on a green leaf — which represents the environment — forming a round Earth to convey this key message: “Konica Minolta is striving to fulfill its role on the planet as a bridge to a more sustainable society.”
