Konica Minolta’s Green Supplier Activities
Konica Minolta has been promoting the Green Supplier Activities to provide suppliers with know-how for reducing environmental impact while reducing costs. In the activities, Konica Minolta’s environmental experts visit production facilities operated by suppliers, make improvement proposals including the cost reduction effect and need for investment, and promote activities to reduce the environmental impact in cooperation with suppliers.
Previously, Konica Minolta’s employees visited suppliers’ plants to conduct energy conservation diagnoses and helped suppliers implement measures. Konica Minolta has developed a system to automate the process of providing know-how by using digital solutions so that suppliers can conduct energy conservation diagnoses and implement measures by themselves. Since FY2020, the activities have been further upgraded as the DX-Green Supplier Activities. Konica Minolta will work with many more suppliers to rapidly expand the efforts to reduce CO2 emissions and costs throughout the supply chain.
