KYOCERA Document Solutions has earned the ISO 14001:2015 certificate. The new certification demonstrates the organisation’s strong credentials in ensuring that environmental sustainability is central to its strategy.
KYOCERA Document Solutions has long had the environment at the heart of its business, aiming to reduce energy and material. Even through a period of rapid growth and expansion, such attitudes remain a priority and the ISO 14001:2015 certification is just the latest recognition of the company’s environmental sustainability plan.
Takuya Marubayashi, President of KYOCERA Document Solutions Europe said, “ensuring that we operate in an environmentally responsible way is one of the most important goals we face as an organisation, and one that we are committed to prioritising as we improve and innovate to allow for further developments.
“There is no planet B and the ISO 14001:2015 certification is evidence of our fundamental focus on caring for our planet through sustainable actions such as using resources more efficiently whilst reducing waste.”
Controlling the processes across the regions in which the organisation operates, KYOCERA Document Solutions continues treating the environment with respect while proactively working towards ensuring optimal working conditions for all staff and contractors. This is shown in several initiatives, such as the goal to reduce CO2 emissions and the ‘Toner Take Back’ recycling program. This program on average results in over 600,000kg of empty toners being collected across Europe and aims to ensure that KYOCERA products are managed in a sustainable way from product development to end of life.
Looking towards the company’s product portfolio, a core focus remains on digital document management that aims to optimise business workflows. This has been pivotal to the company’s on-going digital transformation development which has allowed automated systems to fuel efficiencies within the company whilst benefitting the environment as a whole.
Having obtained the ISO 14001 certification for the first time in 2007, the latest recognition reflects the organisation’s continued efforts of remaining sustainable as a key priority alongside its growth across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
