Epson & the Environment

As one of the leading companies in the field of document printing and production, we see it as our duty to take an active part in the responsible management of our global resources. The company’s environment policies tackle today’s challenges for preserving a better tomorrow for our children and ourselves.

Environmental Vision 2050

The first and simplest step is to reduce CO2-emission. It is obvious by now that the earth’s carrying capacity is limited. It is Epson’s declared intention to achieve a 90%-reduction of the CO2-emissions of its products by 2050.

2015 Goals

The goals we are committed to cannot be reached within a day and in order not to get lost in the mightiness of the task, it is important to set intermediate steps that lead the way to a successful fulfilment of our Vision. We publish further details and information on the steps that we have already taken regularly.

Environmental History

The history of projects started with an enforced pollution-control program that successfully ran over four decades. By the end of the 90s, Epson published its achievements in an annual environmental report. Since the beginning of the new millennium, Epson has widened the scope and is active in reforestation-projects, energy control and zero emission programs alike.

Global Environmental Positioning Statement

Our message is simple and thus understood worldwide: “Better Products for a Better Future”. And yet, these six simple words contain the whole world of statements that empower us everyday to do our best for our customers, our business partners and our environment.

Life Cycle Thinking

From the first sketch until its entry into a recycling process: All our products are developed with an ecologically sustainable life cycle in mind. This is the key-strategy for our eco-considerate products and it carries our efforts to decrease our environmental impact beyond our gates into your homes and office.

New Perspective

Our commitment does not end at the gates of Epson’s production facilities. Our endeavours already influence the daily work routines of our customers and business partners.

Products

All our products are designed to comply with an ecologically sustainable lifecycle. Along with an eco-friendly design and providing ecologically relevant data on our products, this also means the elimination of hazardous substance in our complete product range.

Production

The ecological optimisation of our production processes is one of the core areas where our policies take action. We mainly focus on global warming prevention, the elimination of emissions and the control of chemical substances. Furthermore, we dedicate our efforts to issues like an enhanced transportation system, well-engineered water and substance management and environmental risk management.

Product Recycling

The responsible and effective processing of our products after they have ended their service for our customers and business partners is important. So important, that we already include a recycling strategy as early as the planning stages. All our finished products comply with the WEEE directive from 2005. For our expendable items like cartridges we have established a collection system that assures a safe return of empty cartridges to Epson.

Eco Community

We see it as our duty to provide support and carry our strategies into the global community. Together with our customers and business partners we develop and participate in programs that enforce ecological thinking and responsibility in various fields like Eco Corporate Citizenship, Eco Technology, Eco Communication or Eco Education.

Environmental Management

All our efforts for a committed environmental conservation are deeply rooted in our general management philosophy. It stands in line with society’s wish to minimise the ecological impact on our world. It is Epson’s declared mission to serve this wish and protect our future. The implemented Environmental Management System and the Environmental Risk Management help us to achieve these goals.
