Epson awarded EcoVadis Platinum rating

November 9, 2022

Seiko Epson Corporation (Epson) has earned its third successive platinum rating for sustainability from EcoVadis, a leading provider of business sustainability ratings.

The platinum rating ranks Epson in the top 1% of companies in its industry, particularly excelling in the fields of the environment as well as sustainable procurement. The independent evaluation methodology is based on a framework of 21 sustainability criteria mapped to global standards and guided by the international scientific community.

EcoVadis is a recognised business sustainability ratings organisation covering 200 industry categories, 175 countries and regions, and over 90,000 companies of all sizes worldwide. Epson’s latest platinum rating reflects its ongoing commitment and notable improvements towards sustainable growth in the past year.

This platinum certification follows Epson’s ongoing implementation of measurable initiatives to help identify and resolve societal and environmental issues. Epson made strides towards this goal by switching to 100% renewable electricity last year at all major sites in Japan, becoming the first manufacturer to do so, and is now working to do the same at all group sites globally by 2023.

Yasunori Ogawa, Global President at Epson said: “Our company is focused on achieving sustainability through our products, technologies and operations. This third consecutive platinum accreditation is the result of a lot of hard work and highlights the steadfast commitment and actions by the entire Epson team as we seek to achieve a sustainable future.

“The rating shows that in addition to being a leader in our industry for product excellence and innovation, we’re also at the forefront when it comes to making our industry more sustainable.

“In line with our Environmental Vision of becoming carbon negative by 2050, we will continue to challenge ourselves to perform to the highest standards for sustainable practices, both as an organisation and a member of the wider global community.”

Henning Ohlsson, Director of Sustainability EMEAR said: “As a business, we acknowledge that we have a responsibility to make a positive contribution towards society. Being recognised with the platinum accreditation for our performance by EcoVadis for a third year running is an achievement of which we are very proud and a testament to our continued actions.

“We understand that sustainability is increasingly important to all our customers and this latest accreditation reaffirms our commitment to leading the way in improving our society, through better products and business practices.”
