KYOCERA Global Donates Solar Power Generating Systems to Schools in Africa

We’re pleased to hear that Kyocera Global has recently donated solar power technology to schools in Tanzania and Uganda. An ongoing project since 2009, Kyocera Global has been providing solar power generating systems to schools in Africa which now totals 28 schools in five years. Kyocera has donated to schools that have no access to electricity with the project able to provide electricity for much needed storage batteries, lamps, TV sets, radios and general lighting. With additional installations at seven schools in the last fiscal year, donations have already been made to a total of 28 schools, with seven more to follow by March 2014.

Tanzania Solar Donation

Kyocera believes in the great possibilities of the young generation in Africa and hopes that its donations in Tanzania and Uganda will help further the education of students who carry the future of the countries on their shoulders. To directly convey these hopes, donation ceremonies were held in which a company representative interacted with the teachers and students.

Kyocera started research into solar energy in 1975 when then-president Dr Kazuo Inamori first recognized the long-term potential for solar technology to contribute to global energy demand. Shortly after, in the early 1980’s, the company began providing solar power systems to regions without electricity in Pakistan, China and Nepal. Kyocera remains strongly committed to its business philosophy of utilizing solar energy for the protection of the environment and the improvement of people’s lives.

Are Aussies doing the right thing with E-waste?

An ongoing problem we share in the Australian community is our strong dependence on using landfill for our waste management. Recent years have seen a change in trends with more and more Australians becoming conscious of their own recycling habits.

In 2001, 19 million tonnes of waste were disposed of to landfill, and by 2007 this figure had grown to 21.3 million tonnes. Contributing to this statistic includes municipal waste, commercial and industrial waste and construction and demolition waste.

As Individuals we contribute to the growth in waste going to landfill figures incredibly. Between 1996-97 and 2006-07, the volume of waste produced per person in Australia grew from 1,200 kg per person to 2,100 kg per person per year. So how can an individual make a difference? Why not check out some hints and tips from Clean Up Australia on how you could shed an elephant or two by living greener at home and work.

However it’s not just individuals who can make a difference, businesses also need to be aware of projects and programmes that can help reduce the amount of waste going to landfill.

Long term leadership has its rewards

Kyocera Corporation, the global parent company of Kyocera Document Solutions, was originally founded by Dr Kazuo Inamori in April 1959 as a small suburban workshop where 28 young colleagues pursued big dreams. Over his 35 years as president, Dr Inamori turned a small business, Kyoto Ceramic Co Ltd into the global brand we know today, Kyocera Corporation.

Kyoto Ceramics first product was a U-shaped ceramic insulator (known as a Kelcima) for use within early television picture tubes. In 2012, Kyocera is a highly diversified global enterprise. The long lasting ceramic technology has continually developed and can today be found in a variety of products such as drill components, ceramic knives, computer chips, solar panels and printers/copiers.

It is the business philosophy of Dr Inamori that has driven the growth of Kyocera. The Kyocera Philosophy, founded by Inamori, relates to life and management. Its central principle is to “Do what is right as a human being,” a concept included in all decision making. By showing the importance of fairness and diligent effort, it serves as a paradigm for conduct.

The book, Amoeba Management: The Dynamic Management System for Rapid Market Response focuses on Inamori’s business philosophy and the unique leadership system he developed over decades, both as an entrepreneurial founder of high-tech companies and in guiding numerous other multinational, multi-billion dollar enterprises.

Inamori is widely regarded as Japan’s most respected living business leader. Simple, precise micro-divisional accounting systems distribute management responsibility into small, self-supporting units called amoebas, which can help organisations achieve a high degree of flexibility to accommodate ever-changing markets. All amoeba members are encouraged to focus their creativity on accomplishing common goals. The Amoeba Management System has been adopted successfully by more than 400 companies around the world.

“We pursue boundless dreams by accepting the challenges that others prefer to avoid. We believe that a strong will can make dreams come true, and that limitless effort can overcome any obstacle.” – Dr Kazuo Inamori

These beliefs from Kyocera’s history remain the driving force behind Kyocera’s growth. The aim is to become a creative company that grows continuously throughout the future. Kyocera Group employees around the world have adopted this pioneering spirit and personify Kyocera’s path to growth.
