Konica Minolta Takes Lead in Environmentally Conscious Printing 
Konica Minolta VP Joins Two Sides North America Sustainability
Committee 
RAMSEY, NJ  -- (Marketwired) -- 08/13/14 --  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."
