Konica Minolta Recognized by CDP for Leadership on Climate A List for Two Consecutive Years

Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A. Inc. (Konica Minolta) has announced that it has been awarded a global leadership position on the Climate A List by CDP for the fourth time, including most recently in 2016 and 2017.

The Climate A List comprises of companies that have been recognized as global leaders for their actions and strategies in response to climate change. Of the more than 6,200 companies around the world that were surveyed by CDP, 112 companies, including 13 Japanese companies, were selected for the Climate A List this year.

Konica Minolta considers that its inclusion on the Climate A List for the second consecutive year reflects continued high recognition of its response to climate change and disclosure of information on the process.

Last year, Konica Minolta expanded the scope of its Eco Vision 2050, a long-term environmental vision launched in 2009, by adding the "Carbon Minus" concept as a more ambitious goal. While Konica Minolta has been working to achieve an 80-percent reduction of CO2 emissions throughout the product life cycle by 2050 from the level of fiscal 2005, the company has also taken on a new commitment to involving its stakeholders, including suppliers, customers and communities in its environmental efforts to reduce CO2 emissions by more than the amount of CO2 emissions from its corporate activities. Currently, Konica Minolta is steadily implementing environmental measures worldwide, including sharing a variety of environmental technologies and know-how it has developed over the years with its suppliers and customers and working jointly to reduce CO2 throughout society.

Last fiscal year, Konica Minolta, by backcasting from Eco Vision 2050, set an interim goal of achieving a 60-percent reduction of CO2 emissions throughout the product life cycle by 2030 from fiscal 2005. This goal was recognized as a science-based target by an international initiative, the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
