Kyocera has recycled more than 590,000 cartridges as part of the ‘Cartridges 4 Planet Ark’ program. This achievement is part of an organisational commitment to hold sustainability as a core value, not an add-on. We ask Kyocera’s Sales and Marketing Director Mark Vella about the achievements he’s most proud of and his top workplace recycling tips.

Why did Kyocera become involved?

Kyocera has an inherent passion for our environment and a strong sense of responsibility to maintain its many elements. It is this passion that drives the technology developments in our products and conservation initiatives as a result of our services. Our partnership with Planet Ark enables our channel partners and our customers to continue that chain of responsibility through the entire product lifecycle.

What interests you personally about sustainability?

It’s about contributing meaningfully within my community and providing a positive impact to a clean environment and prosperous economy.

Which of Kyocera’s environmental achievements are you most proud of?

Kyocera’s greatest achievement is its ability to maintain sustainability as a core value, not an add-on. It is the very basis of our printer technology (Ecosys). These products are designed to generate less waste and create the least impact to the environment.
