Wall Street Journal Names KYOCERA Among World’s 100 Most Sustainably Managed Companies


The Wall Street Journal has named Kyocera in its 2020 list of the “100 Most Sustainably Managed Companies in the World.”

To create this ranking, analysts assessed the sustainability metrics of more than 5,500 publicly traded businesses. Their main areas of examination included:

  • Business model and innovation.
  • External social and product issues. 
  • Employee and workplace issues.
  • Efforts to preserve the environment and manage environmental risk. 

Kyocera’s sustainability initiatives reflect the philosophy of our founder, Dr Kazuo Inamori, who won distinction as “Japan’s Most Effective Manager” in two surveys by Nikkei Business magazine before retiring in 1997 as Chairman Emeritus of both Kyocera and KDDI.

For three years starting in 2010, Dr Inamori acted as an unpaid volunteer to lead the successful turnaround of Japan Airlines — resulting in his being named “Japan’s Most Effective Corporate President” at age 80 in another survey of corporate executives by the Sanno Institute of Management. Kyocera’s founder received the Honorary Knighthood in 2019 from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom.

Kyocera Document Solutions Europe B.V., are renowned specialists in IT solutions and software alongside their respected range of printers and multi-functional products, and are honoured to have played a part in this prestigious recognition.  

The honour of recognition for innovation and dedication to environmental preservation is evident in the company’s commitment to “do the right thing as a human being” as a core strength of Kyocera. Ongoing recognition from industry analysts such as BLI are further proof that Kyocera is serious about ensuring a dedicated premium service and product offering to its customers so that they can do business better now and well into the future in this accelerated digital economy.
