Epson and the Environment
Global Warming Prevention
Epson's initiatives to mitigate global warming revolve around reducing CO2 emissions by conserving energy, and reducing global emissions of greenhouse gases other than CO2.
In the 2016 fiscal year we had a goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions per unit of sales by 20% compared to fiscal 2006. We fell short of this goal because, in addition to a decline in revenue resulting from the appreciation of the yen, our emissions of greenhouse gases other than CO2 increased due to expanded demand for electronic devices. However, our fiscal 2016 emissions were still about 38% lower than the level recorded in fiscal 2006.
