• Epson recognised for sustainable office technology

        • Epson has been awarded a Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab PaceSetter award for sustainability as part of the testing lab’s recognition of manufacturers advancing environmental initiatives.

          Epson has focused on reducing the lifecycle impact of its products – from manufacture to end of life disposal - as well as creating solutions that help end customers reduce their own environmental impact. Examples of this include Epson’s business inkjet printers that reduce energy consumption and waste volumes and its PaperLab in-office paper recycling solution. 

          Daniel Quelch, CSR and sustainability manager at Epson said, “Epson aspires to be an indispensable company, trusted throughout the world for its commitment to openness, customer satisfaction and sustainability. This award is testament to these efforts and we are extremely proud to have been recognised in this way.”

          George Mikolay, Associate Director of Copiers/Production at Keypoint Intelligence - Buyers Lab added, “increasingly, companies understand the importance of choosing suppliers and business partners that prioritise sustainability efforts. only are these partners making real efforts to reduce their own environmental footprint, but they’re also inspiring and enabling clients to operate in more eco-friendly ways. Our PaceSetter award winners have demonstrated their commitment to preserving the planet through thoughtful operational and technological improvements.”

          Beyond product, Epson has operational targets in place to challenge its own performance and improvement. In 2018, the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) approved Epson’s global greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction targets. And within European operations, targets have been set to increase the creation and use of renewable energy, reduce CO2 emissions and eliminate single use plastics. The company actively supports the efforts of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and has identified 14 of these goals that its initiatives can support that achievement of.
