Ricoh Joins EPEAT Imaging Equipment Program To Promote Green Purchasing









MALVERN, Pa., Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Every business wants to be green, but it can be harder than it looks. When you're purchasing office equipment, for example, how do you determine which ones are the greenest?

To simplify and promote green purchasing, Ricoh Americas Corporation today detailed its participation in the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) program, the definitive global registry for greener electronics ( www.epeat.net/). For the past three years, Ricoh has worked with EPEAT and other stakeholders to develop 59 definitive environmental criteria for Imaging Equipment. Today, the EPEAT registry expanded to include devices such as printers, copiers, multi-function products and other equipment.

EPEAT is a comprehensive green purchasing standard based upon environmental design attributes, such as, energy efficiency, recycled and recyclable materials, product longevity, packaging, and environmental programs a manufacturer has in place. EPEAT provides purchasers the capability to easily compare environmental performance and practices of various manufacturers in a standardized format.

"The EPEAT registry will help technology buyers make smart purchases that advance their company's sustainability initiatives, reducing their environmental footprint and resulting costs," said Jay Dizzine, Vice President, Technology Marketing, Ricoh Americas Corporation. "Without EPEAT, it can be time-consuming, difficult and confusing for purchasing professionals to wade through all the specifications that may factor into sustainability or comprehend a manufacturer's environmental program for the entire lifecycle of a product. We have Gold- and Silver-rated products today with many more to come, exemplifying our commitment to global leadership in environmental sustainability and the partnership with our customers."

For more than six years, EPEAT has helped companies, governments and consumers compare and purchase greener PCs and monitors, resulting in significant environmental benefits. Today's expansion into imaging equipment was heralded by congressional leaders, environmental groups, leading manufacturers and institutional purchasers.
