Reduction of Waste (zero emissions)
Epson's zero emissions program began with an effort to recycle 100% of business waste. In 2003 all Group companies in Japan and overseas production sites met their material recycling targets. We have been shifting towards resource conservation initiatives, which seek to reduce the resource inputs into production processes.
In the FY2018 we employed control metrics benchmarked against previous year emissions, and we met our Group reduction target.
