Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe announced that since the introduction of its ‘Enabling Carbon Neutrality’ programme five years ago, the company and its customers from across sixteen European countries have together already offset more than 30,000 tons of CO2 emissions.
This equates to travelling more than 93 million kilometres in an average passenger car – the equivalent to approximately 2,300 trips around the world (along the equator).
Olaf Lorenz, Senior General Manager, Digital Transformation Division, Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe commented: “We are delighted with this result. We take our responsibility to reduce our impact on the environment very seriously and it shows that our efforts are paying off. However, offsetting unavoidable CO2 emissions is only the last step. That is why we are focusing primarily on avoiding and reducing energy consumption and substituting CO2-emitting power sources with green energy.”
Konica Minolta’s efforts on this front address ‘Climate Action’, one of the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Konica Minolta also has a specific focus on five other SDGs: ‘Responsible Production and Consumption’, ‘Quality Education’, ‘Gender Equality’, ‘Decent Work and Economic Growth’, and ‘Partnerships for the Goals’. The SDGs were developed by the United Nations to have a worldwide holistic strategy to overcome the key global challenges on an environmental and social level.
