Epson and the Environment

New Perspective

Changing office printing with inkjet technology

Printers with the innovative new high-capacity replaceable ink pack system require minimal replacement of consumables and minimal energy, saving work while reducing environmental impacts.

high-capacity ink pack model

Reducing environmental impacts with the high-capacity replaceable ink pack system

Print up to 75,000 pages*1 without replacing the ink. Reduced CO2 emissions by using fewer resources, and easier management of consumables.

Low CO2 emissions

*1 Quoted yields are extrapolated based on Epson original methodology from the print simulation of test patterns provided in ISO/IEC 24712. Quoted yields are not based on ISO/IEC24711. Quoted yields may vary depending on the images that you are printing, the paper type that you are using, the frequency of your prints and environmental conditions such as temperature.

*2 Figures calculated under Epson's test conditions. Compared with the Epson LP-M5300FZ Japan model, a color laser MFP with equivalent functions. We use a life cycle assessment to calculate the total global warming impacts of consumables across the product life cycle (material, material processing, distribution, disposal) as CO2 emissions. CO2 emissions will vary depending on customer printer use.

Supporting energy-efficient offices with inkjet print

Inkjet printers that do not use heat to print consume far less electricity than their equivalent laser printers.

Low electricity consumption

*3 Typical electricity consumption (TEC) is based on the ENERGY STAR® program's TEC test method criteria. Measured when making 288 prints per day. The TEC value of the WorkForce Pro WF-R8590 series is 0.7 kWh. Electricity consumption will vary depending on customer printer use.

Note: Figures of CO2 emissions and electricity consumption of high-capacity ink pack model and laser printer are based on measurements taken in Japan.

Eco Mode : a standard feature on Epson's inkjet office printers

Eco Mode allows you to save even more energy and paper.


Touch panel


Eco Mode control panel


  • Saves energy by moving to a low-power mode in a shorter period of time
  • Saves energy by reducing the brightness of the LCD touch panel
  • Saves up to 50% of paper with automatic double-sided printing


WorkForce Pro
WF-R8590 series

  • High-capacity ink packs allow you to print up to 75,000 pages*1 without replacing ink. Reduce CO2 emissions by up to 95% compared to their equivalent laser printers, which consume a large number of toner cartridges and photoconductor units.*2
  • Inkjet printers that do not use heat to print consume far less energy than laser printers. Typical weekly electricity consumption of 0.6 kWh.*3
  • Eco Mode allows you to save even more energy and paper.
