Governments

Cooperation with the China Environmental United Certification Center

Epson has for many years endeavored to work with local governments to protect the environments in which it operates.

In 2010, Epson (China) Co., Ltd. (ECC) launched the Epson Carbon Trading Model Forest Project in cooperation with the Beijing Carbon Sink Forest Office, a Beijing city government agency that promotes the planting of trees to absorb carbon dioxide (CO2). ECC contributes to the Beijing Fund of the China Green Carbon Sink Fund via this project and, with the Carbon Sink Forest Office, helps to maintain a 37,000-square meters area in Beijing's Bai Wang Shan Forest Park, measure and monitor CO2 absorption, and educate local citizens about CO2 reduction. Through this project ECC seeks to raise awareness of environmental protection among its employees and help fulfill its corporate social responsibility.

In April 2013, in conjunction with this project, some 150 people, including both employees and members of their families, participated in a variety of events held jointly with the Carbon Sink Forest Office, including tree planting, pruning, watering, trash pickups, and family nature classes. The head of the Carbon Sink Forest Office lauded ECC, saying, "Epson, which emphasizes environmental protection and actively participates in the carbon sink project, serves as a model for other companies and is demonstrating social leadership in the reduction of CO2."


Epson will continue to emphasize communication with local governments in communities where we operate so that we may contribute to these communities.

Dialogue with Local Residents

Dialogue on environmental initiatives
at Head Office

Seiko Epson and Epson Group companies in Japan organize events to exchange ideas with the local residents of the communities in which we operate. We strive to build a positive relationship of trust with the community by cultivating a deeper understanding of our environmental initiatives and risk management system. In fiscal 2013, we held such events at 8 business sites in Japan.
