Epson’s unwavering commitment to achieving the highest standards in international corporate social responsibility (CSR) has paid off once again after independent assessors EcoVadis conferred to the company for the third year in succession a Gold rating for its CSP practices.
This recognition also acknowledges the company’s outstanding practices in Sustainable Procurement and its achievements in Labor and Human Rights for its actions to help preserve the environment. Epson is now within the top 2% in its industry for sustainability.
“Corporate Social Responsibility is at the heart of everything we do at Epson and this achievement in CSR is as important and valuable to our business as financial success,” said Epson Global President Minoru Usui.
“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 sustain our environment. As a business, we have aligned all our activities to the Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs) of the United Nations and we are committed, above all else, to creating a better and more sustainable future.”
