Konica Minolta Takes Lead in Environmentally Conscious Printing

Konica Minolta VP Joins Two Sides North America Sustainability Committee

RAMSEY, NJ--(Marketwired - August 13, 2014) - Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta), has joined Two Sides North America, a rapidly growing non-profit organization that promotes the responsible production, use and sustainability of print and paper. Konica Minolta's Vice President of Strategic Business Development, Kay Du Fernandez will also serve on Two Sides' Sustainability Committee.

Two Sides aims to dispel common misconceptions about paper, including the belief that using paper is always bad. In fact, paper comes from trees which are a renewable resource if they are grown in responsibly managed forests. The continuing demand for sustainably sourced paper gives North American landowners and families a financial incentive to continue managing their lands responsibly and keep them forested rather than selling them for development or other non-forest uses.

"It's an honor to have a sustainability leader such as Konica Minolta join our organization," says Phil Riebel, President, Two Sides North America. "Their global sustainability recognitions are numerous and their engagement in Two Sides will further strengthen our reputation, our credibility, and our reach."

"Konica Minolta views environmental awareness as an integral part of our management philosophy. Our leaders and employees strive to uphold the highest standards of responsible citizenship," says Kay Du Fernandez, Vice President, Strategic Business Development, Konica Minolta Business Solutions, Inc. "We are excited to join Two Sides in its mission to promote the responsible production and use of print and paper, and dispel common environmental misconceptions about paper to ensure the future of this important industry."

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
