Konica Minolta continues its focus on creating momentum and transforming key social issues for the betterment of society, despite the uncertainties created by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Konica Minolta partners with the 17 goals of the United Nations for Sustainable Development to support people, the planet and prosperity around the world with a plan for measurable action on a global basis. The current agenda targets 2030 to reach these goals, which are integrated and balance the three dimensions of sustainable development: economic, social and environmental.
“At Konica Minolta, we remain focused on how we can continue momentum and transform key social issues in the U.S. and around the world – all while we help our customers with digital transformations to create value for people and more sustainable business processes,” said Allison Kern, CSR & internal communications manager. “As a global company of more than 40,000 employees, we’re committed to a single purpose: to benefit our customers and our society at large.”
The company also offers opportunities for its employees to give back through volunteer efforts and giving initiatives that focus on environmental sustainability along with health and wellness. Along those same lines, Konica Minolta is working to support its global customers and business partners with the goal of creating value for society. Earlier this month, President and CEO Shoei Yamana shared two key focus areas as Konica Minolta looks toward 2025.
The first is on meeting the needs of customers in diverse industries with optimal solutions to transform workstyles and improve service quality through state-of-the-art technologies. This now includes digital transformation support to local governments in Japan.
The second focus is facilitating business growth in the areas of measurement, inspection and diagnosis. Konica Minolta is leveraging its imaging technology to “make the invisible visible,” offering valuable solutions customized to the value chain of each industry.
To that end, in April 2021 Konica Minolta launched the CARE Program, Japan’s first platform to detect – by genetic testing – the risk of diseases before they develop, in cooperation with Seirei Social Welfare Community. The CARE Program will provide healthy and unaffected people with personalized cancer-risk information based on genetic analysis and support early detection of diseases to provide preventive treatments
