With KYOCERA celebrating the 27th anniversary of its Environmental Charter, KYOCERA Document Solutions UK continues to use the Charter as an essential part of everyday life within the company. Based on the concept of “coexistence”, the landmark policy leads the way in the organisation’s efforts to “do the right thing as a human being”.
The Environmental Charter was created in October 1991 and has been a fundamental pillar in the company. Despite growth across the globe, sustainability and environmental protection is at the heart of KYOCERA’s existence. It adheres to the company philosophy, as created by founder, Dr. Kazuo Inamori, which outlines the desire that KYOCERA “contributes to the advancement of society and humankind”.
The success of this approach is proven by KYOCERA Document Solutions’ recent attainment of the ISO 14001:2015 certification, which demonstrates an environmental approach in all of the organisation’s operations.
Promoting environmental responsibility among customers is also an aim of its ongoing initiatives, as KYOCERA strongly believes that a sustainable approach does not end at the moment of consumption.
“At KYOCERA, ensuring that all of our activities are sustainable and environmentally friendly is a real commitment, as well as an essential business practice,” explains Takuya Marubayashi, president of KYOCERA Document Solutions Europe.
“Sustainability is not just a mere buzz word for KYOCERA, it is a way of living. All of our employees embrace that approach and, from our experience, so do our partners, dealers and customers. It is part of what sets us apart as an organisation and as a family”.
By 2020, the KYOCERA Corporation aims to utilise its solar power generation systems to generate a carbon benefit which is three times greater than the carbon footprint for global operations. Since 2013, this figure has already reached the ability to break even.
