A comprehensive environmental vision for a better future
At Epson, we know that planning for the future requires a strong commitment to the environment. That is why our holistic Vision 2050 strives to address all aspects of our environmental impact as a business, and how we can help through the collective willpower of Epson and the global communities we operate in.
Based on our understanding of the Earth's current situation, Epson established the Environmental Vision 2050 to help guide the company's environmental activities over the next four decades.
Recognizing that the Earth's carrying capacity is limited and believing that everyone has a shared responsibility to reduce the negative environmental impact, Epson has set the following four key conditions in order to work towards achieving Environmental Vision 2050:
- Reduction of CO2 emissions by 90% across the entire product life cycle
- Inclusion of all products in the resource reuse and recycling loop
- Elimination of global warming gas emissions other than CO2
- Restoration and preservation of biodiversity as a member of the ecosystem, together with local communities
Although our goals seem ambitious, society - including Epson - must strive to meet these targets to salvage the environmental problems and restore our ecosystem to its prime. To meet these targets, we will work together with customers, suppliers, NGOs, research institutes, governments and anyone else with ideas on how to achieve these goals. By combining technological development with a shared sense of commitment and cooperation - from our worldwide suppliers, customers and various stakeholders - we can make steady progress and achieve the goals of Environmental Vision 2050.
