Air pollution affects both the external environment and the internal working environment. We're committed to avoiding and reducing greenhouse gas emissions to help improve air quality, reduce pollution and create more sustainable workplaces.
We aim to cut pollution and reduce particle emissions as far as possible during:
Indoor air quality (IAQ) is an important factor linked to better health and wellbeing. There's growing awareness of:
As part of our commitment to improving our customers’ individual work environments, Konica Minolta has developed effective solutions to help our customers optimise IAQ and create a workplace that's better for everyone's health, comfort and productivity.
Although laser printers may be only one of many sources of odours and emissions in the office environment, we aim to minimise their impact. We've developed dedicated, high-performance filter devices (or air cleaning units) for our office systems that simultaneously:
Our air cleaning units last the device lifetime and never need replacing. There are three options:

Our air cleaning units achieve up to 98% reduction of ultra-fine particle (UFP) emissions, measured according to Blue Angel standard DE-UZ 219.
Our office systems carry the Blue Angel ecolabel, a voluntary certificate that confirms a product meets additional environmental criteria relating to energy efficiency and low emissions, as defined by the German Federal Environment Agency (Umweltbundesamt).
The air we breathe is closely linked to our health and wellbeing –
and the air at our place of work is likely to affect our comfort and productivity. Konica Minolta is committed to improving people’s working environments in whichever way possible, for instance by offering sustainable and effective solutions that help our customers improve the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) of their working space by reducing emissions.
In our efforts to cut pollution from logistics and transport, we favour shorter distances and transport options that help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Where possible, we're trying to shift transport across Europe from air and road to rail and water. Already:
Consolidating European distribution at Emmerich allows us to optimise our logistics facilities and ensure efficient distribution from the factory to the customers. We're also reducing the number of containers we use through improved loading.
