Home Environmental Pursuit - True to Our Planet

We’re passionate about sustainability and the role we play in the health of our global environment. Our commitment started almost 80 years ago and gets stronger every day.

Our longstanding commitment to the environment stems from a deep desire to preserve our natural resources.  We can only flourish as a company if our products and solutions go beyond their designed function and keep the environment in mind.

 
 

Our philosophy of developing efficient, compact and precise technologies—or “Sho-Sho-Sei” as it’s known in Japan—has been infused into every Epson product since the beginning. Designing for low energy consumption, minimized waste, small footprints, high reliability and minimal moving parts results in outstanding solutions for our customers. And also supports our Environmental Vision 2050.

Increase Productivity & Save Energy with Heat-Free Printing Technology. Our broad portfolio of inkjet printers use Epson’s most advanced heat-free technology that increases productivity and helps reduce environmental impact.

 

EcoTank Cartridge-Free Printers

With over 60 million sold worldwide1, our EcoTank cartridge-free printers with larger, refillable ink tanks have already helped reduce millions of pounds of plastic from landfills2.

3LCD Projectors

Leading the global market, Epson projectors offer innovative features like ECO mode, which can lower power consumption as much as 29%. Plus,  models with long-lasting laser light sources reduce the need for maintenance.

We manage our business with a closed resource loop and circular economy in mind. From the materials we use to manufacturing and distribution, we’re constantly looking to lengthen product life cycles through repair, refurbishment, recycling and reuse.

Repair

  • User replaceable parts for many products
  • Extended Service Plans offered in addition to warranty
  • Expansive Local Service Center network

Refurbish

  • 100K+ products refurbished in the U.S. annually
  • Quality-certified by Epson
  • Service and support direct from Epson

Recycle

  • Reducing environmental burden by recycling end-of-life hardware
  • Our Product Stewardship Program lets customers return used Epson products for recycling

Reuse

  • Investments in Dry Fiber Technology facilitate paper recycling with little water to create paper, packing, face masks and more
  • Our PaperLab product is the world’s first dry process office papermaking system5

Building on our momentum, in March 2021 we revised our Environmental Vision 2050, stating the ambitious goals we’re working towards. In addition to developing environmental solutions closing the resource loop and promoting decarbonization, we continue to increase our commitment to specific goals and actions supporting global efforts to achieve sustainability.

Epson, a United Nations Global Compact signatory since 2004, is committed to over 150 initiatives aligned with all 17 of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals for the environment, our communities and society at large. Almost 80,000 Epson employees worldwide stand together in support of sustainability and the health of our global environment.
