Epson and the environment

We all have a role to play in building a better future. For Epson, being a sustainable company means being mindful of every aspect of our organisation – from the smallest lightbulb to the largest factory. It fuels our innovation, drives our growth, motivates our workforce and, ultimately, to contribute to society. It is also an essential part of how we work with our partners across the supply chain.

Providing customer value in the form of reduced environmental impacts

Epson was a pioneer in the abolition of CFCs, announcing its CFC-free policies in 1988. Only four years after tackling the issue, CFCs were eliminated from all domestic manufacturing processes in October 1992. By May 1993 they had been eliminated on a global basis. Epson also achieved the complete abolition of chlorinated solvents known to be harmful to human health in early 1999. In the same year, the activity aiming at the complete abolish of lead solder, which is also said to be contaminating the environment, was started.

Epson strives to achieve co-existence between its business and safeguarding of the environment. We challenge ourself to develop environmentally conscious products. We also continue to fulfil our social responsibility to use resources in the most effective way to protect the environment.
