Canon U.S.A. Pioneers EPEAT® Imaging Equipment Product Registration With Selected Digital Multifunction Devices

As part of its near 30-year commitment to the Kyosei philosophy of living and working together for the common good, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced that it is among the first manufacturers with qualifying products in the new imaging equipment category of EPEAT ®, the global registry for greener electronics. Governments, businesses and individuals worldwide use EPEAT to assist them in choosing devices that can help reduce their environmental impact. Additionally, all eight models in Canon’s imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5200 and imageRUNNER ADVANCE 4000 Series of multifunction devices have received an EPEAT Gold rating, the highest level of registration.

“Canon’s commitment to Kyosei is more than a philosophy; it is ingrained in everything we do. Similarly, Canon handles research and development with two simultaneous objectives in mind: maximizing each product’s performance while minimizing its environmental impact,” said Seymour Liebman, executive vice president, chief administrative officer and general counsel, Canon U.S.A. “We are extremely proud to be among the first companies in the digital imaging category to secure EPEAT registration and look forward to expanding on our great heritage of developing products that can help our customers achieve their own environmental goals.”

To be added to the EPEAT registry, an imaging device must meet at least 33 required environmental performance criteria. Products may achieve higher ratings by meeting some or all of 26 additional optional criteria. Gold qualification signifies that a product meets all required criteria and at least 75 percent of optional criteria. The rating criteria were developed during a four-year stakeholder consensus process that involved hundreds of representatives from the environmental, research, governmental and manufacturing sectors.

EPEAT rates products on a lifecycle basis, and considers, among other things, their absence of toxic substances, their use of recycled and recyclable materials, and their design for recycling, product longevity, energy efficiency, corporate performance and packaging.
