    Konica Minolta gets environment tick
    August
    2007 /Konica Minolta has won an Environmental Choice accreditation in
    recognition of the company’s efforts to decrease the impact its
    products have on the planet.Environmental Choice New Zealand is a
    government initiated labelling programme designed to help consumers
    find products that minimize adverse environmental impacts generated by
    the production, distribution, use and disposal of products.Konica
    Minolta general manager Warwick Beban says, “The process of gaining
    accreditation brought our team closer together because we were all
    working for a common goal that affects all of us as New Zealanders.”The
    Environmental Choice ‘ecolabel’ is based on stringent criteria relating
    to legislative compliance, design, materials, emissions, noise,
    packaging, recycling, energy, duplex copying, availability of spare
    parts and consumables, paper and consumer information.”We’re proud of
    our achievement and want our customers to feel assured they have a
    responsible partner in Konica Minolta,” says Mr Beban.One area that
    also gained Konica Minolta points is in its multi-function
    printer-copier refurbishment. Each month the company refurbishes over
    300 multi-functional devices and resells them back to the market,
    creating significant cost savings for customers.Devices not suitable
    for the New Zealand market are also exported to continue their working
    lives in South-East Asia and the Middle East.Konica Minolta is also
    rolling out include machine end-of-life disposal to ensure plastic,
    metal and glass parts are fully recycled, environmentally sound battery
    disposal, packaging recycling and toner cartridge recycling.
