April 22, 2015 marks Earth Day’s 45th anniversary.
In today’s eco-conscious world, it’s hard to imagine that before 1970, there were few to any laws or regulations to protect the environment.
On the first Earth Day, more than 20 million Americans demonstrated in cities across the country to demand a cleaner planet. In December 1970 Congress authorized the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to address environmental issues.
Today, environmental sustainability and climate change are part of a global conversation. With global warming occurring at a startling rate, citizens from all aspects of society are taking steps to ensure a habitable planet for future generations.
As a company that aims to create new value for society, Konica Minolta is thinking about the environment and the future of our planet.
