Epson has been awarded a Gold rating for overall sustainability by independent platform EcoVadis for the second year in succession. The top rating, which reflects Epson’s commitment to achieving the highest possible international CSR standards, also acknowledges Epson as being outstanding in both the environment and sustainable procurement categories.

The rating also highlights Epson’s excellent achievement in labour, human rights and ethics. EcoVadis, an independent, trusted, and collaborative platform, uses a unique CSR assessment methodology that measures over 50,000 organisations across 190 industry sectors in 150 countries. The process to achieve the ranking included reviewing and assessing Epson in terms of its people, processes, and platforms, which resulted in outstanding recognition of its policies, actions and results in both the environment and sustainable procurement, placing Epson in the top 3 per cent of companies for overall sustainability, Epson said.

Sustainability is deeply ingrained in Epson’s management philosophy; it is an integral driver of Epson’s innovation and is a key factor in how we work with our partners across the supply chain. The company is also committed to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This commitment to sustainability is reflected in Epson’s product range including inkjet printers, which reduce waste and energy consumption, projectors, and robotics systems, which are all grounded in the proprietary “sho sei” or efficient, compact, and precision technologies that Epson has refined over the years.
