• Kyocera DS UK celebrates 28 years of Environmental Charter

        • This year marks another landmark for Kyocera Document Solutions UK as the company joins Kyocera Corporation in celebrating 28 years of its landmark Environmental Charter. The organisation continues to use the policy as a benchmark and integral factor as it moves forward into 2020.

          Created in October 1991, the Environmental Charter has acted as an underlying foundation for all of Kyocera’s business activities, helping to ensure that the business ‘contributes to the advancement of society and humankind’ as dictated by the philosophy of founder Dr. Kazuo Inamori.

          Pioneered in conjunction with Inamori’s original conception of the company, the influence of the Charter can still be felt in Kyocera’s products nearly three decades after its inception. Earlier this year, the company announced a target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30 per cent by 2030, as endorsed by the Science-Based Targets initiative.

          As 2019 draws to a close, the coming year will also see the fruition and sustained ambition of Kyocera’s Target 2020, an initiative that sees the company committed to responsible environmental management with a focus on the following three aims:

          • Contribution to the realisation of a low-carbon society
          • Contribution to the realisation of a recycling-based society
          • Contribution to the realisation of a society that coexists with nature

          Since 2011, Kyocera has been a member of UN Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative. The company’s active membership has encouraged the development of several energy-saving initiatives, such as the use of green curtains at corporate sites across the globe. Since its implementation at a number of Kyocera facilities in 2007, this eco-friendly cooling strategy has neutralised over 100,000kg of CO2.

          Rod Tonna-Barthet, CEO at Kyocera Document Solutions UK said, “ever since the introduction of our environmental charter, Kyocera has been a frontrunner in ensuring that technology and nature live in harmony. As an organisation, our goal is to continue this ethos by developing innovative technologies that ensure a more efficient business environment and a more sustainable future for ourselves, our children and generations to come.

          “This outlook has been at the centre of our focus when planning for the next year, where we have continued to use our respected charter as a benchmark. Just as it was when we launched Kyocera’s multi-award winning ECOSYS technology in 1992, our goal for 2020 is to make sure we continue to make eco-friendly products, without any compromise on quality or cost savings.”
