Kyocera is committed to a more sustainable future.
Our ECOSYS printers create less waste and have the lowest cost per print against comparable devices. We were the first to develop a cartridge-free system for laser printers and we focus our innovative thinking on reducing environmental impact (Ecology), minimising running costs (Economy), and ensure effortless integration with information networks (Systems).
Kyocera views solar as crucial for the future of our society. We are innovating to reduce our planet’s dependence on conventional energy sources, with ideas such as floating solar power plants to solar ventilation in the Toyota Prius.
We purify water used in our factories so that it’s cleaner when we’ve finished with it than the water in the public water supply. We work hard to make our factories and offices ‘green’, with rooftop solar power systems and ‘green curtains’ planted to grow over windows and outer walls, helping reduce our energy consumption. We also contribute to biodiversity conservation.
We’re part of the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative.
In manufacturing, various factors can lead to loss. However, this loss can be reduced to at or near zero through total awareness of all parties involved. Through our comprehensive approach to "visibility," KYOCERA Document Solutions publicly shares all problem spots and issues with every employee. This approach utilizes the awareness of each individual to minimize loss. All employees develop careful eyes for strictly checking each individual part, helping to achieve loss reduction. Multiple measures are taken to ensure product quality, including issuing acknowledgments even if a single potentially fatal defect is reported during the month. These are just some of the ways we evaluate our stance toward comprehensive product quality throughout the company.
KYOCERA Document Solutions has achieved ISO 14001:2004, the international standard for environmental management systems. This highlights KYOCERA's commitment to a sustainable environmental management strategy. ISO 14001:2004 environmental management standards exist to help organizations:
KYOCERA strives to certify all of its manufacturing plants and non-manufacturing facilities throughout the world to the ISO 14001:2004 standard. KYOCERA is committed to:
ISO 14001:2004 certification emphasises the importance of environmental responsibility, customer focus, a process approach and improved supply chain management from an environmental perspective.

Electric power consumption in stand-by and the default time it takes to enter this mode has an important Impact on the overall power consumption of the devices. In line with the “EC 801/2013” (Lot 26) regulations, the overview informs about the default timeouts the Devices take to enter into network standby (sleep) mode as well as the power consumption when connected to the stated interfaces.
Please find below the latest list of all Lot26 complying devices:
Scanning, sharing, and printing documents has arguably never been so important to how businesses operate. Our ECOSYS range is therefore designed to strike the perfect balance between performance and longevity, so that you can cover your business needs while minimising your environmental impact.
