Kyocera Document Solutions Europe Receives Prestigious WorldStar Global Packaging Award

3rd April 2024

We are thrilled to announce the remarkable achievement of Kyocera Document Solutions Europe at the esteemed 2023 WorldStar Global Packaging Awards. Recognised for its groundbreaking shipping solution for ink supply units, Kyocera has reaffirmed its commitment to innovation and sustainability in the global packaging industry.

Organised by The World Packaging Organisation (WPO), the WorldStar Global Packaging Awards stands as the pinnacle of recognition in the packaging sector, celebrating excellence and ingenuity worldwide. Kyocera is honoured to be distinguished among the leading organisations in this prestigious competition.

How environmentally friendly is the new packaging?

For over two decades, Kyocera has been dedicated to developing multifunctional printers (MFPs) and printers with long-life parts and low-waste credentials, prioritising sustainability in its operations. This commitment extends to its packaging practices, where Kyocera predominantly utilises recycled paper materials such as pulp moulds and corrugated boards, minimising the use of plastics.

The challenge of creating environmentally friendly packaging often lies in optimising space efficiency. When tasked with packaging its high-capacity ink supply unit, which includes various components of different shapes and materials, Kyocera embarked on a journey of research and development to find a solution.

How does the new packaging work?

Through meticulous innovation, Kyocera devised a groundbreaking packaging method where bundled items are seamlessly integrated into the cushioning material used for the machines themselves. This ingenious approach not only maintains the compactness of the packaging but also eliminates the need for additional packing boxes, significantly reducing waste. As a result, shipping efficiency has been enhanced by 50%, with a remarkable 30% decrease in packaging materials.

“This WorldStar recognition is a tremendous honour for Kyocera Document Solutions Europe, reflecting our unwavering commitment to sustainability,” remarked Takuya Marubayashi, President at Kyocera Document Solutions Europe. “Our award-winning packaging exemplifies our core philosophy of doing the right thing as human beings. It's a testament to our dedication to making a positive impact on the environment while delivering exceptional value to our customers.”
