Konica Minolta scoops second prestigious Green Hero award

Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) Ltd, a market leading Managed Print Solutions provider, has won the prestigious Green Hero Award for a second time in recognition of its innovative ‘MPS Green Audit Process’, helping to reduce its customers’ environmental impact.

The Award was presented to Claire Ham, Konica Minolta’s Quality & Environment Manager by Trevor Baylis O.B.E., inventor of the wind-up radio.

The Green Audit Process is an integral element of the full end to end Managed Print Service offered by Konica Minolta. It enables the calculation of the amount of energy, paper and consumables used in the printing process, and works out the Co2 emissions generated. With award winning environmental credentials, Konica Minolta is then able to develop a plan to empower businesses to reduce their environmental impact, whilst streamlining their business and document workflows.

The Green Hero Awards are organised by The Green Organisation, an independent environmental group who have been promoting the positive effects of environmental activities since 1994. The aim of the Green Hero Awards is to recognise, reward and promote environmental best-practice on an international level.

Neil Dingley, Managing Director, Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) Ltd commented “We are delighted to have won this prestigious international award in recognition of our pioneering MPS Green Audit Process, as part of our full MPS offering. For many businesses, reducing their carbon footprint is also a key priority and our end to end MPS portfolio addresses this need”. 

Along with winning the Green Hero Award, Konica Minolta has the honour of having this process published in The Green Book containing all of the project submissions from the green apple and green hero award winners.
