Creating new value for people and society
Konica Minolta is committed to meeting the needs of global customers and helping people fulfill their dreams. We do so by using imaging technologies, which have been continuously refined over nearly 150 years in the camera and photography business. As we see other companies face the challenges of digital transformation, we integrate our core technologies with cutting-edge AI and IoT to keep creating new value for people and society.
Inspiring global innovation through co-creation
To meet diverse needs, in Japan we focus on the development of our four core technologies (imaging, materials, optics, and nano-fabrication) in coordination with IoT. We are also working on AI solutions and digital services for offices and the digital industry in Europe and the United States, to increase global collaboration and leverage our strengths in these regions.
We will continue to address various issues faced by customers and offer value to society by combining Konica Minolta’s technology development capabilities with the technical know-how of our partners and respective business channels.
Contributing to a Sustainable Society
Many social issues have emerged, including demographic changes, higher social security costs, climate change, and resource depletion. Konica Minolta has identified five material issues that must be addressed urgently toward 2030. By focusing on these, we aim to contribute to society through technology development, while meeting the visualization needs of customers.
