    We are a carbon neutral company.

    There is no planet B. That's why KYOCERA Group UK is taking climate action today.

    At the heart of Kyocera founder Dr. Kazuo Inamori's philosophy is the motto, "Respect the Divine and Love People". Guided by this philosophy, we are taking action to offset our UK operation's carbon by working with partners to reforest our paper use and by funding carbon-reducing projects around the world. By carbon offsetting Scope 1+2 and certain Scope 3 GHG-emissions 2021/2022, we are proud to be carbon neutral.

    Kyocera & myclimate

    We are offsetting our CO2 footprint through three of myclimate's climate protection projects.

    • Kenya

      Reducing the amount of firewood used for cooking in Siaya County with locally manufactured stoves.

    • Nepal

      Switching wood fires with biogas for cooking, preserving forests and improving people's health.

    • Madagascar

      Supporting the manufacture and distribution of efficient cookers and climate-friendly solar cookers.

    What are we offsetting?

    Our calculation of KYOCERA Group UK's operational carbon emissions includes:

    • Direct (scope 1) emissions - gas central heating and fuel for company-owned vehicles
    • Electricity-related (scope 2) emissions - a calculation of the emissions generated by our electricity consumption, based on the UK energy grid's mix of energy sources
    • Certain indirect (scope 3) emissions - employees' work-related travel in their own vehicles which is expensed to our business

    Reforestation with PrintReleaf

    We are reforesting all of the paper used by our UK operations in partnership with PrintReleaf. As these trees grow, they'll provide new habitats for wildlife and absorb carbon from the atmosphere. Visit our PrintReleaf page to find out how many trees we have planted so far on behalf of ourselves and our customers.

    As well as reforesting our own paper use, we're reforesting the paper used by customers who purchase our TASKalfa Pro 15000c inkjet production printer. Energy-efficient with water-based inks, the TASKalfa Pro 15000c is a cost-effective, sustainable choice for printing service providers and businesses that require a high-volume, high-capability machine.

    Putting the environment at the heart of innovation

    Kyocera's products are designed with sustainability in mind.

    • Sustainable print technology

      Up to 30% of the plastics used in Kyocera products are recycled, and over 99% is recyclable. Download our whitepaper to learn more.

    • Toner take-back service

      We offer a return service for all used, genuine Kyocera toner cassettes, to ensure their disposal in the most sustainable way possible.

    • Recycling your Kyocera device

      We want to reduce the amount of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) that ends up in landfill.

    It's a marathon, not a sprint

    Achieving carbon-neutral status is an important milestone for KYOCERA Group UK, but this isn't our final destination. We recognise that we need to reduce our emissions as well as offsetting them. What's more, atmospheric carbon and climate change is just part of the challenge facing us - we all need to reduce our consumption, recycle more and prevent plastic from getting into the environment.

    We've already taken some important steps forward. We've adopted fully recyclable packaging for our products, implemented ISO 14001 and introduced a hybrid working policy for our office staff, cutting down on commuting.

    Start your journey towards a more sustainable future.

    Work with Kyocera & we can help you implement a sustainable print strategy - including reforesting your paper use & even offsetting the carbon used to produce your Kyocera devices & consumables.
