HKQAA has developed the "HKQAA Hong Kong Registration - Eco-friendly Series" to encourage organizations to integrate environmental aspects into the design, production, delivery, use and disposal of their products and services, so as to improve environmental performance. The initiative recognizes organizations’ contribution to promoting environmental protection based on the traceable evidence. Konica Minolta's Simitri Toners, including the toners used in bizhub PRESS C1100 and bizhub PRO 1100, are awarded the label of "Eco-friendly product".
