Kyocera Intensifies its Commitment to Climate Protection with Climate-Neutral Toner.
In addition to climate-neutral toner, which Kyocera Document Solutions has been offering since 2013, the document specialist has also been compensating for the CO2 emissions of the hardware for half a year. At the end of the fiscal year, the manufacturer has now drawn a positive balance.
Thanks to the revised Print Green program, savings of more than 250,000 tonnes of CO 2 can be reported, which are offset by investments in international climate protection projects in Kenya, Madagascar and Nepal, according to Meerbusch. “Kyocera has stood for resource-saving and environmentally friendly document processes for many years,” says Stephen Schienbein, Sales Director at Kyocera. “The successes we have achieved with our Print Green program so far show that we are on the right track here.”
Now Kyocera is going one step further and has also had the CO 2 footprint for the company headquarters in Meerbusch calculated according to the international standard of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol and made it carbon neutral for 2020. This not only compensates for the emissions caused – thanks to detailed analysis, the largest CO2 emitters were also identified and potential savings were identified. “The conservation of natural resources and the topic of sustainability are firmly anchored in our company philosophy, we have always acted according to the approach of avoiding diminishing before compensating,” recalls Schienbein.
In addition to the strategic expansion of its own climate protection commitment, Kyocera is working on various initiatives with other companies, NGOs and ministries in order to anchor and promote climate protection more strongly in the German economy, including in “Economy Makes Climate Protection” and in the Alliance for Development and climate.
