CSR maturity

C-
Epson, like several of its fellow manufacturers, publishes a societal responsibility report which is inspired by the GRI conduct guidelines, but does not follow its principles and is not subject to validation by the body. 
It does not offer any performance monitoring indicators or any objectives with figures calculated and defined in terms of timescales.
However, the company is listed in some social responsibility indexes, such as the FTSE4Good, the Japanese Morning Star, the Dow Jones Sustainability Index and it has a "Silver" certification in the SAM ranking, a non-financial rating agency. 

With regard to its production, Epson has however made notable progress, for example the 46% reduction in CO2 emissions throughout the lifecycle of one of its printers (L100) with respect to another model (Stylus T13), simply by taking action in terms of the ink cartridges by setting up a refilling system. Overall, the aim is to achieve a 90% reduction in the global impact of products throughout their lifecycle by 2050.

Epson is a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact for the company's ethics in its business activities and its social impact. From the point of view of its social commitment, the company gets involved at a local level more than internationally, in its support, education and environmental conservation projects.
