Konica Minolta boss stresses on environmental care

Shoei Yamana, President and CEO of Konica Minolta, has underlined three points to merge real and digital worlds to drive industries and society forward that would also take care of the environment.

In his keynote speech at CeBIT 2016, one of the world's largest IT trade shows, in Hannover, Germany, recently, he said he is focused how lightning-speed development in digitalization of devices and ICT technology encourages creative corporate management and promotes future growth.

Yamana also highlighted the need to use digital transformation to actively promote diversity and responsible innovation. The third point, he said, was to use digital development to achieve a cleaner environment and a better quality of life for all.

“We need to drive the manufacturing industry forward by merging real and digital worlds and creating intelligent, inclusive multi-vendor software and platforms,” he said.

Yamana's thrust on the company's green initiative is of particular interest to the textile industry as Konica Minolta also makes testile printers.

“Socially responsible digital transformation must also consider the environment. Konica Minolta's green factories, green products and green marketing are designed to cut CO2 emissions in half over the medium term. It is vital that we don't limit the value of these activities to its own company alone,” he said.

Yamana said the company needs to share its in-house expertise for reducing environmental burdens with partner firms and customers worldwide.

“We believe the most important thing of all is to share its thoughts on the global environment with all of its stakeholders, and establish an effective ecosystem that enables us all to create value and grow as a business, while, at the same time, helping solve environmental issues,: he said.

The global textile industry, once tagged as a high polluter, is now on a major drive to clean up the environment. (SH)
