27 April 2010
Kyocera Mita UK is honoured to have been named Green IT Magazine’s Company of the Year in the magazine’s inaugural awards ceremony which was held on Earth Day in the spectacular surroundings of ZSL London Zoo. The accolade is a fitting highlight of a year in which Kyocera has grown its UK business significantly, despite the challenging economic climate.
Green IT magazine Editor Brian Wall praised Kyocera Mita’s achievement, saying: “This is a company that made a commitment many years ago to the guiding principles that lie behind green – at a time when green was far from fashionable - and gave those principles their own momentum and credibility. Kyocera Mita being recognised as Green IT Magazine’s ‘Company of the Year’ is a well deserved and just reflection of that deep commitment.”
Receiving the award, Kyocera Mita’s UK Managing Director Jun Okumura commented: “I am delighted that Kyocera Mita has been honoured for its environmental approach to business. This award is recognition of all the hard work that the UK team has done since the launch of the first ECOSYS printer in 1992. We strongly believe that environmental responsibility and commercial success can and should go hand in hand, and this is a view which is gaining steady support from the business community. Green IT Magazine’s endorsement of our approach is welcome validation of the fact that attitudes towards environmental responsibility in business are changing, and that we are heading in the right direction.”
Kyocera Mita Corporation is founded on a philosophy of living together with society, living together with the world, and living together with nature. This approach translates into laser printers and MFPs and managed document services that have a lower environmental impact than the conventionally-conceived alternative. The entire lifecycle of the product is scrutinised to continually reduce the negative impact of the device on the environment.
