Epson and the Environment
Epson is mitigating environmental impacts and maintaining legal and regulatory compliance by focusing on water and resources from a risk management point of view. Basic to this is making sure we soil and consume no more water than necessary, and recycling and reusing what we do use.
We work actively to increase the recycling rate of factory wastewater and comply with stricter water quality regulations. Moreover, we are implementing energy-efficient water treatment facilities. Thus, we seek to reduce the overall impact of production processes.
In the 2016 fiscal year we had a goal of reducing water use by 55% compared to fiscal 2006. We fell just slightly short of this goal due to an increase in the number of electronic devices that are manufactured in processes that use a large volume of pure water.
