This report is the result of rigorous research which examined the sustainability metrics of more than 5,500 publicly traded businesses in key areas such as business model and innovation, external social and product issues, employee and workplace issues, and the environment. Overall, Kyocera ranked 46th in the world, with a score of 72.7.
Kyocera ranked third in the world in terms of the sustainability of its business model and innovation, also ranking fourteenth for human capital sustainability. The performance of the organization reflects the philosophy of the company’s founder, Dr. Kazuo Inamori, to “Do the right thing as a human being”.
“As an organisation, we are extremely proud to have formed part of the work of Kyocera Corporation which has seen us earn a place on The Wall Street Journal’s prestigious list of the most sustainable companies in the world,” said Óscar Sánchez, President and Chief Executive Officer at Kyocera Document Solutions America, Inc.
“To finish third for the sustainability of our business model and innovation not only serves to show our desire to ‘do the right thing as a human being’ but it also reflects the strength of Kyocera. We are a global company leading the way in terms of innovation in a variety of fields.”
“This recognition is a testament to the commitment to responsible business practices across the entire corporation. We, at Kyocera Document Solutions, are unwilling to rest on our laurels and we will be looking for new ways to become even more sustainable going forward. We, quite simply, have a duty to do so. For our customers, communities, and future generations.”
This approach is nothing new at Kyocera and can be dated right back to the principles of Dr. Inamori which underpin every product, service and interactions with stakeholders. The company added. Beyond the priority of customer satisfaction, Kyocera said it is determined to ensure that the environmental impact of its business activities is minimal, and customer carbon footprint significantly reduced.
