Clean air in the office: Indoor Air Quality

Konica Minolta is committed to actively improving the working environment of its customers and creating space for them to focus on their core competencies. As a measure of the cleanliness of air within offices and its potential impact on the personal health and comfort of those using the space, Indoor Air Quality is a service to improve the  level of health and well-being overall. The company collaborates with a wide range of reliable and competent project partners to provide dedicated filter devices for different office systems, ensuring high emissions reduction while maintaining airflow in the devices involved. Filter solutions, measured by Blue Angel certifications, reduce copier particle emissions by up to 98%. Thus, customers can improve their indoor air quality, a key factor in the levels of health, comfort and productivity of staff.

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.

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.
