Konica Minolta offsets 30,000 tonnes of CO2

Konica Minolta kas announced that its Enabling Carbon Neutrality programme has now offset more than 30,000 tons of CO2 emissions across sixteen European countries.

Olaf Lorenz, senior general manager, Digital Transformation Division, Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe commented: “We are delighted with this result. We take our responsibility to reduce our impact on the environment very seriously and it shows that our efforts are paying off. However, offsetting unavoidable CO2 emissions is only the last step. That is why we are focusing primarily on avoiding and reducing energy consumption and substituting CO2-emitting power sources with green energy.”

Konica Minolta has and is running a number of initiatives to reduce climate impact, these include carbon neutrality, sourcing renewable energy (it is a member of RE100) and reducing energy consumption with plans to reduce CO2 emissions by 80 per cent up to 2050 (compared with the 2005 level).

In reducing energy use COVID has been an unwelcome but nudge, highlighting major areas in which business travel emissions can be saved in favour of virtual events and meetings.
