Global Sustainability is a Priority

Konica Minolta’s global, long-term sustainability strategy, Eco Vision 2050, sets goals for the company to reduce CO2 emissions throughout the product life cycle. Currently it is ahead of schedule and on track to reach carbon minus status by 2030 instead of 2050, as originally planned. The initiative promotes recycling, effective use of Earth’s limited resources and the restoration and preservation of biodiversity. The company helps corporate clients and suppliers to achieve effective use of resources as well by constructing efficient supply chains for client companies using on-demand production, and reducing workflow and supply chain loss for corporate clients.

We are proud to be listed among the 2023 Global 100 Most Sustainable corporations in the world.
