＜Initiatives toward a recycling-oriented society＞
We are always reviewing what we can do as a corporate citizen in order to create recycling-oriented society while
striving for minimizing consumption of natural resources and promoting "Zero Waste Emission" activities. In addition, we
will accelerate initiatives for the recovery and recycling of end-of-life products and packaging materials.
＜Long-Term Environmental Target Eco Vision 2050＞
・Promote recycling and effective use of Earth's limited resources
＜Vision for 2030＞
・Promote the effective use of resources at Konica Minolta, while also helping corporate clients and suppliers to achieve
Konica Minolta's approach
By facilitating connected workplaces, on-demand production, and imaging IoT, Konica Minolta will promote work-style and
manufacturing-process reforms that help make even more effective use of customer and society resources.
In the field of commercial printing, the company is providing support for the transition to on-demand printing, thereby
transforming the business model of mass production and disposal. The widespread use of Konica Minolta products for
small-batch, decentralized printing can accelerate innovation in the printing supply chain while helping to conserve
resources and reduce waste.
Leveraging DX technologies, Konica Minolta will also promote collaboration with even more corporate clients and business
partners, taking on the challenge of broad-scale environmental impact reduction. It will promote the creation of
circular models linked to business models. Examples of this include the digitization of the Green Supplier Activities
that provide business partners with Konica Minolta environmental expertise, and the utilization of recycled materials to
help reduce society's waste as a whole.
