Sustainability at the Forefront
Sustainability continues to be a major part of Epson’s DNA and the core of its business, with the belief that efforts to advance sustainability can have a greater impact by collaborating with the communities and organizations that share the same core values.
One of Epson’s long-term partnerships is with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), developing projects focused on marine conservation, climate change education, and sustainable production systems of low-income communities.
Epson has also prioritized transforming its operations to make way for more sustainable policies. One of its latest manifestations was transitioning the Epson plant in the Philippines to run on 100% renewable energy. Moreover, with problems like resource depletion and global warming, Epson recognizes the demand for products and services that use resources efficiently. Epson is also taking initiatives to reduce product size and weight, use recycled materials, and extend service lives.
Ushering in the new era of printing in the B2B space
Many young working adults are keenly aware of the climate crisis and are looking for sustainable solutions within their workplaces. Epson, a technology leader, has responded to this need by unveiling their new Workforce Enterprise AM Series of heat-free business inkjet printers. This new product line completes Epson’s offering to help businesses of all sizes realize an environmentally conscious office. By using Heat-Free technology, the new series combines innovation and sustainability to offer more productive ink usage, reduce overall cost, and offer a smaller footprint that comes with enabled solutions, thus setting the standard for more sustainable printing solutions.
The Workforce Enterprise AM Series of Linehead Inkjet printers will be available in the Philippine market in Q1 of 2023, with a three-product lineup consisting of the AM-C4000, C5000, and C6000. Epson’s promise to customers for even more productive, efficient, and sustainable printing solutions will lead them to end the sale and distribution of laser printer hardware in their lineup by the end of 2023 in the Southeast Asia region.
Epson’s Southeast Asia Regional Managing Director Siew Jin Kiat led the ceremonial unlocking of the Philippine headquarters and concluded that “a new era of printing has indeed arrived, and we are proud to finally have come to this moment and become the leader of sustainable printing solutions in the market.” With the launch of their new Philippine headquarters and the latest line of enterprise inkjet printers, Epson sincerely looks forward to unlocking the future.
The paperless future is becoming common, but the demand for paper will still exist. Therefore, it is crucial for Epson to align its products with sustainable initiatives to reduce environmental impact. By doing so, Epson can become the leader in sustainable printing solutions in the market.
