Konica Minolta global has once again been listed on the prestigious 2021 Global 100 list of corporations that excel in sustainability. The company was selected from among 8,080 major global companies based upon an evaluation of environmental, social and governance indicators, the percentage of sales of eco-friendly products, as well as the ability of the business to promote diversity and innovation.
  
“Konica Minolta believes that pursuing a sustainable society also leads to enhanced sustainability for companies. Based on this belief, we continue to enhance our commitment to innovation and this assists us to foster value creation for the business. We aim to balance corporate growth alongside the creation of a sustainable society, simultaneously building on the growth of businesses,” says Marc Pillay, CEO of Konica Minolta South Africa.
Konica Minolta continues to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), while facilitating the evolution of the business community and human society. Within South Africa specifically, for example, the company has already planted in excess of 50,000 trees at schools, clinics, museums, community centres and RDP suburbs over the course of the past eleven years.
 
"Beyond improving the air quality of their surrounding areas, these trees also release oxygen and help to mitigate global warming by sequestering carbon dioxide, amongst a host of other environmental and societal benefits,” adds Pillay.
 
In addition, Konica Minolta also offers different sustainability services to its customers to help them achieve their environmental goals such as the company’s South African toner recycling project.
