Striving for Significant Reduction of CO2 Emissions

In January 2009, Konica Minolta Global launched a new program and long-term environmental goal, Eco Vision 2050; a reduction of CO2 emissions of 80% from its worldwide business activities by the year 2050. This initiative to reduce CO2 emissions included collaborating with external stakeholders, such as suppliers, customers and society to attain this goal.

Konica Minolta to Achieve the Carbon Minus Goal in 2030, Ahead of the Original Target Year, 2050

In 2017, Konica Minolta updated its CO2 reduction goal to achieve Carbon Minus status by 2050. The company recently announced it will reach this goal by 2030, 20 years earlier than the original date of 2050 by accelerating the process of reducing CO2 emissions from internal and external sources as part of the Digital Transformation (DX) initiative. DX is a key priority for today’s businesses and Konica Minolta is keeping in step with society’s needs by also helping its customers succeed with their DX initiatives. The company is confident that DX will be effective in drastically reducing CO2 emissions and enable achievement the goal by 2030.
