Epson Response to the Ukraine Crisis
- TOKYO, Japan, March 9, 2022 -
Epson and its Group companies are deeply concerned by the conflict in Ukraine and the humanitarian crisis in the region.
To support humanitarian relief for those affected by the crisis, we are donating US$1 million through the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and the Red Cross. In addition, Epson Group companies are arranging to match all funds raised through staff donations to the Red Cross.
As part of its policy of pursuing the trust-based management that underpins its Management Philosophy, Epson is committed to respecting human rights. As such, we have made the decision to suspend exports of our products to Russia and Belarus.
The Epson Group strongly urges an immediate end to the conflict.
