Epson Europe president plans out new green vision

Epson has revealed its vision for a sustainability-focused future. The company looks to become carbon negative by 2050, and is planning to join eco-collective, RE100.

The global collection of large and influential businesses is committed to obtaining 100% renewable energy, with Epson aiming to reach 100% renewable electricity by 2023.

The new vision comes after the printing company appointed its new president Yoshiro Nagafusa, as well as announcing ‘Epson 25 Renewed’, a corporate vision to push the firm towards its goal of sustainability, while also helping to enrich local communities.

Epson’s revised ‘Environmental Vision 2050’ looks to work on a program of decarbonisation and technological innovation that will make the company carbon negative, and underground resource free over the next fifty years.  

I am particularly proud to take on this leadership role for Epson Europe as we enter a new phase for the company

Nagafusa, who was appointed president of Epson Europe on April 1st, says: “At Epson, we aspire to operate and develop technologies in ways that can help to support society with the evolving issues it faces, and there are few more important matters than climate change.

“I am particularly proud to take on this leadership role for Epson Europe as we enter a new phase for the company”.
Nagafusa adds: “I look forward to leading our European operations as we work to reduce the impact Epson products, services, and supply chains have on the environment”.
