How technology contributes to a harmless environment
Harmless for food contact
Thanks to the environmentally-friendly product properties of the Simitri toner, the German TÜV Reinland recognised it as 100% harmless for food contact. This food safety certification creates opportunities for use, such as food packaging or food label printing.
Corporate Engagement to foster employee diversity and gender equality
Employee diversity as source for innovation and success
One of Konica Minoltas strengths as a global company is employees of different national origins, beliefs, cultures, languages, genders, ages and expertise work together in regions all over the world. It is this diversity that leads to innovative thinking and original ideas, thus generating new value that helps provide solutions for customers and society. This kind of value creation embodies its value “Inclusive and Collaborative”. Konica Minolta strives to live up to this value, respecting diversity and promoting inclusion and belonging to create value that leads to progress for customers, society, and individuals. The company fosters cross-border exchange with its “Mobility programme”.
In 2015 Konica Minolta in the UK set up its Women’s Network. The network provides a trusted environment that celebrates difference, delivers value and changes perceptions. Working with partners the network has delivered events, networking, community support, mentoring and personal development focused on empowering women and driving inclusion in the Technology Industry.
Support young woman and girls in the IT business
Konica Minolta collaborates with an NGO to run a capacity-building project supporting women building careers in the IT industry. The project aims to attract, select and support women and girls in the IT business, with the goal of helping them access the job market, learn the basics, find a job, or found a start-up. Initially launched in the Czech Republic in August 2015, the project was expanded to Germany in 2016, and has also been set up in Poland and Austria in 2017/2018.
