With the growing concern for the environment, more and more printers these days are making their own move to commit themselves—and their company—to protect our natural resources. The most recent among them is the Sustainability Report released by Epson for this year. The report contains accounts of how the company is addressing its responsibility to the environment.
One of them is the introduction of the SmallInOne inkjet series launched in 2011 as a response to the growing need for environment-friendly printers. According to Epson, this printer is much smaller than its competitors. Another is the increasing use of the company’s Micro Piezo printhead technology. This technology allows materials to be created in “high quality output, reliability and high cost performance”. Epson also expanded its 3LCD projector lineup, launched a head-mounted display, and used its impressive technology to provide wearable and low power products and services to the healthcare and sports industry.
According to Minoru Usui, President of Epson, “relentlessly pursuing innovation in compact, energy-saving, high-precision technologies, Epson can create fresh customer value that matches the world’s desire for smaller, more powerful products that have lower power requirements and lower environmental impacts”.
