Kyocera Group has established long-term environmental targets to address climate change issues, including a 46% reduction in CO2 emissions in FY2030 compared to FY2019. Furthermore, Kyocera Group companies are working to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.

This initiative reflects our commitment to simultaneously promote economic development and environmental conservation through the introduction of renewable energy. It is also in line with our goal of bringing environmentally friendly MFPs and printers to the market that save energy and require fewer parts to replace.

In the future, we will continue to introduce solar power generation systems at our other locations and regions, and acquire environmental value certificates, aiming to achieve 100% renewable energy at all Kyocera Document Solutions Group locations by 2030. To achieve the Kyocera Group Long-Term Environmental Targets, each and every employee recognizes the importance of climate change countermeasures, and the entire Kyocera Group will work together to contribute to the progress and development of people and society by setting Living Together with Society, the World and Nature as the axis of all corporate activities and continuing to support the sustainable development of our customers' businesses and society.
