Environmental Management of the KYOCERA Document Solutions Group

In 1991, the Kyocera Group established the "Kyocera Environmental Charter," setting forth our basic stance for addressing environmental problems based on the philosophy of "Living Together," and we began activities to protect the environment through a company-wide effort. As a member of the Kyocera Group, the Kyocera Document Solutions Group has established an "Environmental Vision" which puts the ideas of the Charter into concrete terms, and is engaged in environmental management that aims to achieve sustainable growth, while balancing ecology and economy, based on the "Kyocera Document Solutions Group Environment Safety Policy".

Policy about Environmental Activities

In conducting business activities, Kyocera Document Solutions Group will, more actively and continuously, promote comprehensive efforts regarding environmental issues, based on management rationale:

  • We will comply with all laws and regulations, matters which we have agreed to, and our own standards concerning the environment.
  • We will research, develop and expand the products which contribute to the improvement of the global environment and reduce the environmental loads throughout their life cycle.
  • We will reduce greenhouse gas emissions throughout the entire value chain and contribute to the prevention of global warming.
  • We will procure the environmentally-friendly materials, minimize the volume of the input of new resources and waste emissions and make use of sustainable resources.
  • We will promote biodiversity conservation by minimizing the negative impacts on the environment and by protecting and nurturing natural ecosystems.
