Konica Minolta Publishes CSR Report 2014

Corporate Citizenship Includes Global Initiatives and Green Activities

RAMSEY, NJ--(Marketwired - September 08, 2014) - Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta) today announces that parent company Konica Minolta, Inc. has published the CSR Report 2014, an annual report providing stakeholders with details on the company's global corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives.

Having launched its medium-term business plan, "TRANSFORM 2016," at the start of fiscal 2014, Konica Minolta is transforming business by focusing on customer-centric ideas that create value through an enhanced offering of products, solutions and services that contribute to overcoming problems faced by customers and society.

The Report also introduces the Medium-Term Environmental Plan 2016, an action plan based on Konica Minolta's long-term Eco Vision 2050 that sets specific goals for fiscal year 2016. This plan has three important themes: Green Products (planning and development); Green Factories (procurement and production) and Green Marketing (distribution, sales and service, and collection and recycling). These themes are collectively named "Three Green Activities," and each theme has established goals for fiscal year 2016 in terms of environmental and corporate value.

In addition, Konica Minolta has driven initiatives to pursue cost cutting and reduction of carbon emissions at local suppliers by working with them to improve the production process. In fiscal year 2013, these efforts resulted in a total of nearly 1,800 tons of CO2 reduction.

"Corporate citizenship initiatives are a central part of our management philosophy -- The Creation of New Value -- and we are constantly striving to realize this vision by delivering new value that helps customers and the broader society overcome the challenges they face," says Kevin Kern, senior vice president, Marketing, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. "Konica Minolta looks to reduce our environmental impact as part of being committed to our customers and the world in which they live."
