Konica Minolta to help three charities by offering 600 working days

Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) Ltd has announced three charity partnerships as part of its Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) framework.

This year, Konica Minolta asked its 600 UK employees what charities they wanted to support, before putting the final selection to an all-company vote. The charities that Konica Minolta will help throughout the next 12 months are Candlelighters, Dynamic, and Trust Links.

Candlelighters supports families facing children's cancer in Yorkshire. The Dynamic centre for children and young people with disabilities provides help and support to children (ages 8-25) and families with disabilities in and around Wrexham. Trust Links is a local independent charity aiming to improve mental health, well-being, and the environment in Essex.

Gillian Anderson, Environment, Social & Governance Partner at Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) said, “it was essential for us to listen to the voice of our employees, to understand what matters to them in their communities, and through doing so identify how, as a collective, we can have the biggest impact.

“When we partner with a charity, we look for an organisation that we can support in the local community, that our employees care about, and where we feel we can make a meaningful difference.”

Throughout the next 12 months, Konica Minolta’s 600 employees working throughout the UK will embark on a programme of volunteering and fundraising for the three charities.

Gillian added, “every employee can spend one working day per year volunteering for good causes, which means we are dedicating 600 days to local community projects and initiatives. However, many employees go above and beyond when it comes to raising money and dedicating more of their time.” 

To aid the efforts of employees Konica Minolta has developed a Social Impact App that can be installed on their mobile devices to help them keep track of their volunteering and fundraising activities and share them with colleagues.
