Konica Minolta Achieves Green Milestone

Konica Minolta announced it has recycled one million cartridges through its partnerships with Cartridges 4 Planet Ark and Close the Loop, saving over 600 tons of waste from landfill.

Dr David Cooke, Managing Director at Konica Minolta Australia, claims, “Konica Minolta works hard to be a sustainable company by measuring, minimizing and managing our carbon emissions. Diverting landfill and reducing greenhouse emissions from used toner cartridges is just one of the ways our organization is making a positive and meaningful contribution to the environment and our community.”

Cartridges 4 Planet Ark and Close the Loop recycle all Konica Minolta toner bottles to create innovative, green products like eWood park benches and raised garden beds. Dr Cooke promotes the partnerships as vitally important to its continuing commitment to deal with business waste.

Konica Minolta Australia noted it backs a global eco vision to reduce CO2 emissions by 80% by 2050, adding that 92% of all machines are recycled at the end of their lifetime via Australia’s Sims Recycling e-Waste program.
