• Epson achieves EcoVadis Gold for CSR

        • Epson has been awarded a Gold rating for CSR by independent assessors EcoVadis for the third year in a row.

          The top rating, which reflects Epson’s commitment to achieving the highest possible international CSR standards, also acknowledges Epson as being ‘Outstanding’ in Sustainable Procurement and highlights its excellent achievement in Labour & Human Rights and for its actions to preserve the environment. 

          The overall results show a 5 per cent increase on the previous year with a significant score increase in Labour & Human Rights, placing Epson in the top 2 per cent for CSR in its industry.

          Minoru Usui, Global President of Epson said, “Corporate Social Responsibility is at the heart of everything we do at Epson and this excellent achievement in CSR is as important and valuable to our business as financial success.

          “Epson’s aim is to be an indispensable company, which means we must create unique, long term value by producing excellent products that exceed our customers’ expectations, address societal needs and, importantly, sustain our environment. As a business, we have aligned all our activities to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations and we are committed, above all else, to creating a better and more sustainable future.”

          EcoVadis assesses companies’ policies and actions as well as their published reporting related to the environment, labour & human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement. 

          Henning Ohlsson, CSR Director, Epson Europe added, “we have made great strides in 2019, especially in the area of labour and human rights, and we are pleased to see our achievement recognised with an increased overall score by EcoVadis. But there is always more to be done and we will continue to examine every aspect of our business and deliver even further improvements in our sustainability performance.

          “EcoVadis Gold is an important and valuable measure of success for our business. Our customers in both the public and private sector are increasingly demanding comprehensive, verifiable audits that demonstrate a real commitment to sustainability with adherence to the very highest labour, human rights and social standards.”
