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".
