A global vision for the future

Reducing environmental impact and restoring biodiversity and balance

Better products for a better future

At Epson, we know that planning for the future requires a strong commitment to the environment. That is why we strive to create innovative products that are reliable, recyclable and energy efficient.

Better products that use fewer resources help ensure a better future for us all.

Based on our understanding of the Earth's current situation, Epson established the Environmental Vision 2050 to help guide the company's environmental activities over the next four decades.

Recognizing that the Earth's carrying capacity is limited and believing that everyone must share responsibility for reducing environmental impacts equally, Epson is aiming to reduce CO2 emissions by 90% across the lifecycle of all products and services by the year 2050.

As a member of the ecosystem Epson will also continue to work towards restoring and protecting biodiversity together with local communities.

Epson has set the following four key conditions in order to work towards achieving Environmental Vision 2050:

1. Reduction of CO2 emissions by 90% across the entire product life cycle
2. Inclusion of all products in the resource reuse and recycling loop
3. Reduction of direct CO2 emissions by 90%, and elimination of global warming gas emissions other than CO2
4. Restoration and preservation of biodiversity as a member of the ecosystem, together with local communities.

Even though we realise that our targets are quite ambitious, society - including Epson - must meet these targets to survive current environmental problems. To meet the targets we will work together with customers, suppliers, NGOs, research institutes, governments and anyone else with ideas on how to achieve these goals.

By combining technological development with a shared sense of commitment and cooperation - from our worldwide suppliers, customers and various other stakeholders - we can make steady progress and achieve the goals of Environmental Vision 2050.
