Fairfield, N.J. – In just the latest testament to Kyocera’s environmental credentials, Kyocera Document Solutions America, Inc. is proud to celebrate that Kyocera Corporation has been named among the “100 Most Sustainably Managed Companies in the World” by The Wall Street Journal.

This report is the result of rigorous research which examined the sustainability metrics of more than 5,500 publicly traded businesses in keys areas such as business model and innovation, external social and product issues, employee and workplace issues, and the environment. Overall, Kyocera ranked 46th in the world, with a score of 72.7.

Kyocera ranked third in the world in terms of the sustainability of its business model and innovation, also ranking fourteenth for human capital sustainability.
