The Epson booth at Eco-Products 2014

Epson has had a booth at Eco-Products, Japan's preeminent environmental fair, every year since 1999, the first year of the fair. In 2014, at the 16th Eco-Products, our booth featured historic products made with our compact, energy-saving, high-precision technologies that have been the DNA of our manufacturing innovation since our founding. Guided tours around the booth also pointed out lifestyle and business comforts and environmental solutions that Epson's core technologies have created.

Forum to Promote the Attractiveness of the Shinshu Mountain Environment (Japan)

Floor discussion

Building networks of conservation-minded groups, institutions, businesses, and individuals is a great way to conserve biodiversity. Networks are effective because they provide a means for people to share information.
Nagano Prefecture, where Epson's Head Office and many other facilities are located, hosted the Forum to Promote the Attractiveness of the Shinshu (Shinshu is the traditional name for Nagano) Mountain Environment in February 2015. Because Epson helped draft the prefecture's 2012 Nagano Prefecture Strategy for Biodiversity, the company joined the floor discussion entitled "Preserving Shinshu's Rich Natural Environment" at the forum. During the discussion, we pointed out that we understand that business activities hurt the ecosystem when resources are extracted as materials for products. Therefore, we noted that to conserve biodiversity, we need to run our business in a way that consumes fewer virgin resources. The forum concluded with a declaration to establish the Shinshu Biodiversity Network. Shinshu University, nature conservation groups, Nagano Prefecture, and others have been promoting this effort as one of the key projects of the Nagano Prefecture Strategy for Biodiversity. The forum is expected to help strengthen networks for biodiversity conservation and advance the preservation of rare plant and animal species and ecosystems in the prefecture.

Community Dialog (Japan)

Seiko Epson and Epson Group companies in Japan organize events to exchange ideas with the local residents of the communities in which we operate for the purpose of cultivating a deeper understanding of our environmental initiatives and risk management system.

Epson's Global Environmental Communication Guidelines, established in 2008, provides rules for environment-related communications.
