    giving-tuesday-11-29Everyone has the power to make the world a better place.

    This concept is the cornerstone of the growing social movement #GivingTuesday, which takes place today, November 29. #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and partnership. The idea is simple: in the midst of consumer-driven events like Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday encourages people to come together and celebrate acts of generosity and kindness, no matter how large or how small.

    As a movement, #GivingTuesday doesn’t actually accept donations. It aims to connect donors with non-profits and spread the general spirit of giving. There are so many reasons to give, especially around the holidays. Our world is facing serious challenges, including poverty and food shortages. There are people in need in almost every community.

    Giving doesn’t need to cost money and can fit into your busy schedule.

If everyone contributed one act of kindness this #GivingTuesday, imagine how many people would have a better day! (more…)

    EcoVision 2050: Our Planet Needs Us

    , Senior Vice President, Business Intelligence Services and Product Planning

    And what do we give it in return? Year after year, we pollute our land and our oceans. We decimate our forests. We emit greenhouse gases.

    But the future isn’t so dire. With just a little effort from each of us, we can help our planet.

    We can recycle. We can reduce our carbon footprint. We can develop green technology. At Konica Minolta, preserving our planet is part of our business. It is also part of our philosophy: Creating new value for our customers and our society. To create this value, we have a long-term environmental action plan. Called Eco Vision 2050, it guides us to achieve our corporate citizenship goals and fulfill our responsibility as a global corporation.
