Konica Minolta : Listed among Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World for the Fifth Time and the Fourth Consecutive Year

01/19/2022 | 09:06pm EDT

Tokyo (January 20, 2022) - Konica Minolta, Inc. (Konica Minolta) has been listed among the "2022 Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World" (2022 Global 100). Konica Minolta's inclusion on this prestigious list will mark the fifth time and the fourth year in a row, following 2011, 2019, 2020 and 2021.

The Global 100 is announced annually by the Canada-based Corporate Knights at the meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF), known as Davos Meeting. This year, however, as the Davos Conference was postponed to summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the outcome of Global 100 was announced ahead.

The 2022 Global 100 corporations that excel in sustainability were selected based on a rigorous assessment of 6,914 companies with more than US$1 billion in revenues around the globe based on an evaluation of environmental, social and governance indicators as well as the ability to promote diversity and innovation and the percentage of sales of eco-friendly products. Three Japanese companies are on this global list of corporations that excel in sustainability.

Konica Minolta is advancing a digital transformation (DX) based on FORXAI, its own imaging-IoT platform, and by providing solutions that satisfy the customers' hopes and desires to "see", each business seeks to achieve the material issues as it works to help solve future social issues.

For example, the company's gas monitoring solution makes gas leaks visible at plants using non-contact, remote-monitoring technology, thereby preventing accidents and helping to ensure the safety and security in the society. Furthermore, Konica Minolta offers the SenrigaN nondestructive inspection solution as a simple judgment method for detecting ruptures of steel materials inside concrete structures such as PC bridges. In yet another field, Konica Minolta provides online diagnosis services for medical institutions for supporting healthy, high-quality living.

The company has also been addressing the urgent crisis of global climate change. By not only reducing its own environmental impact, but also by providing the suppliers and customers with the environmental technologies and know-how it has acquired, Konica Minolta is advancing its Carbon Minus initiative to achieve carbon emission reduction in excess of its own emissions by 2030. In 2020 Konica Minolta launched the Environmental Digital Platform as an ecosystem to reduce environmental impact with 16 companies. Now the number of participating corporations has grown to 58 across industry sectors. Konica Minolta aims to raise efficiency by bringing together the wisdom of companies in different industries and using this information, while accelerating the resolution of environmental issues through an affiliation between companies, promoting co-creation and the development of innovations, and helping to resolve environmental issues on a global scale.

Konica Minolta is integrating the strengths developed in its businesses over the decades with the latest digital technologies to provide high value-added products and services, thereby helping to achieve the SDGs.
