Epson and the Environment

Transport/Value Chain

Epson is reducing CO2 emissions by increasing the efficiency of product, part, and waste transportation. We are making products smaller (which increases shipping efficiency), rethinking our logistics centers, innovating the loading and packing processes (to boost loading efficiency), and reconsidering shipment departure and arrival frequencies and number of trips.

After a fire at a supplier's facility in 2017, the need to minimize the resulting delays in part shipments forced us to increase our reliance on air transport, which rose 15% year-over-year.
