The recommendation will be to pinpoint the sustainable goals at first. One of my recommendations would be by 2030, the company, Konica Minolta, will reduce the carbon footprint by at least y 5%. That is why it is helpful to ensure universalising access to sustainable energy. Various projects are formulated that will address the limitations to progress and distribute the projects among the team.

The latest features of cloud printing and network solutions have to be achieved very soon. The manufacturing of digital planetariums and the implementation of different technologies must be done in an environment-friendly way to avoid all sorts of hazards. As devices and hardware are installed and utilized for image sensing and AI processing, the performance must be executed cautiously and mindfully.

Achieving sustainable goals is important to run the industrial performances (Fonseca, Domingues & Dima, 2020). The clients can be asked to reuse the bags provided by the company. A cooler or a water fountain can be used in place of a vending machine to distribute in-office plastic bottles. As the first step to success can be through a small change, every endeavour must be conducted warily. A reward system can be implemented to increase the practices of sustainable development and responsible conduct must be rewarded all the time to encourage the exercise.

In pursuit of sustainable development, the strong economic foundation of the company must b built. Prosperity comes through the inclusive and advanced work process and dynamic future. The model must be based on democratic vision and youth employment. Increasing the action to put more crucial elements in the CSR policies is the most effective factor (Monteiro, da Silva & Neto, 2019). The issue of forced labour, workplace harassment must be stopped and on the other hand, women’s economic empowerment is mandatory among the well-educated and decent workforce.

The pillar of Economic sustainability is formed by the efficient participation of the workforce who will maintain the perfect capital generation. The efficient utilization of resources is only possible when every employee is treated as a tangible asset. In order to increase the sustainable growth of industries, it is required more practices (Leal Filho et al., 2019). The humanitarian perspective must be applied to improve the standard of stable economic growth. It must be kept in mind that giving up economic prosperity is not just an option, sustainable development holds more value than financial development.

The quality and quantity of development matter equally and for this concern, the practice must be stronger through the support and assistance of laws. The principle identifies the economic and social development of Konica Minolta that safeguards the environment and emboldens equality.
