Brian Cupka, Executive Vice President and General Counsel
What can we do about global warming? That’s the question individuals, corporations and organizations are being challenged to ponder today in honor of World Environment Day 2017. Celebrated annually, World Environment Day is the United Nations’ annual push to promote awareness and action for the protection of our planet.
Todd Foote, Vice President, Government Sales and Marketing
Everyone sees articles or news headlines referring to environmental issues. In some cases, they have to do with new standards needed for an industry and, in other cases, concerns about the long-term effects that can impact the environment.
With all these conversations taking place, it makes me proud to work for a company like Konica Minolta that prides itself on creating new value in order to champion environmental protection and contribute solutions for many challenges facing our global society.
Nowhere is our commitment more supported than with the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT), a voluntary standard for product ratings.
Kevin Kern, Senior Vice President, Business Intelligence Services and Product Planning
The Earth gives us everything: food, shelter, water. Life.
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.
