“Ensuring that we operate in an environmentally responsible way is one of the most important goals we face as an organisation, and one that we are committed to prioritising as we improve and innovate to allow for further developments,” says Takuya Marubayashi, president of Kyocera Document Solutions Europe, a core company of Kyocera Corporation based in Osaka, Japan.

There is no planet B and the ISO 14001:2015 certification is evidence of our fundamental focus on caring for our planet through sustainable actions

“There is no planet B and the ISO 14001:2015 certification is evidence of our fundamental focus on caring for our planet through sustainable actions such as using resources more efficiently whilst reducing waste.”

The Netherlands-based firm has several initiatives in place to be more environmentally friendly, including the ‘Toner Take Back’ recycling program which has on average seen over 600,000 kg of empty toners collected and recycled across Europe.

Having obtained the ISO 14001 certification for the first time in 2007, the latest certification outlines that Kyocera has met the standards for an environmental management system that uses resources efficiently and reduces waste. The certification also gives companies a competitive advantage and further trust from stakeholders.

Kyocera has pledged to continue to demonstrate environmentally friendly practices in all of its business endeavours leading up to the 27th anniversary of Kyocera’s Environmental Charter in October. The firm specialises in document imaging and management as well as printers and wide format devices.
