Climate action in cities is essential to achieving ambitious net zero emissions goals, but success will depend on the capabilities and skills of the workforce, who must equip themselves to remain relevant. Kyocera has been paying attention to the necessity even before sustainability attracted global attention, and working for more than 30 years to develop environmentally friendly products with long-life designs that minimise the need for parts replacement.
