The OEM has been listed as one of the 2019 Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World by Corporate Knights.
The ranking was revealed by the Canadian media company in conjunction with the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF) to be held from January 22 to 25 in Davos, Switzerland. This is the second time that Konica Minolta has been included on the prestigious Global 100 list, and the first time since its debut appearance in 2011.
The 2019 Global 100 were selected from among 7,536 major companies around the globe based on an evaluation of environmental, social, and governance indicators, as well as the ability to promote diversity and innovation. Eight Japanese companies were named as corporations that excel in sustainability.
Konica Minolta has set the goal of becoming a global company that is “vital to society, by continuing to create new values that bring innovations to the world in cooperation with stakeholders around the world.”
To achieve this goal, and in light of the changing social landscape and business environment, Konica Minolta has identified the following six material issues to be addressed with priority, and integrates corporate social responsibility into its management focusing on these issues: Environment; social innovation; customer satisfaction and product safety; responsible supply chain; human capital; and diversity.
By promoting global initiatives in line with these material issues on a group-wide basis, Konica Minolta states that it hopes to contribute to the evolution of the business community and society at large, and to the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
