    The true measure of success

    Kyocera Document Solutions Inc. recently announced that its packaging for dual sided, duplex automatic document feeder received the WorldStar Award 2021 in the Electronics category, organised by the World Packaging Organization (WPO).

    The competition evaluates the environmental compatibility, economic efficiency, originality, etc. of packaging materials, and awards the "WorldStar" stamp of approval for outstanding products.

    Based on an awareness of the 17 goals of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), specifically goal number 12 - the responsible consumption and production, Kyocera’s award relates to the exclusive use of cardboard for its cushioning material. Instead of using plastic, cardboard is used in order to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and thereby eliminate the discharge of hazardous substances. Furthermore, the complex shape of the feeder requires the cushioning material to be designed as an efficient shock absorber as it adopts a unique folding structure for the cardboard, and is relatively small in size.

    This is the 10th time in which Kyocera has received this prestigious award and it comes hot on the heels of Kyocera winning the coveted European Digital Press Association (EDP) award in December last year for the revolutionary TASKalfa Pro 15000c. The EDP Awards are Europe's only technology assessment in the industry and it is an open competition for all products announced and launched to market within a year.

    Winning awards does not define success. Kyocera believe that success is defined by the impact we make on the world. By following the global philosophy set out by our founder, Kazuo Inamori, to “Do what is right as a human being” we can ensure that our successes have a measured impact on the world. By continuing to lead by example and striving to make a positive difference we can achieve the sweetest success of all.
