Innovation to protect our planet

Kyocera is committed to a more sustainable future.

Less waste, long-life, low cost

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).

See the light

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 practice what we preach

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.

Environmental Conformance:
 

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:

  • Thinking and acting ‘green’

    Thinking and acting ‘green’

    We have ambitious goals for sustainable growth and demands to satisfy ecology and economy by the year 2020 and policies to reduce our impact on the environment. We focus on three areas: green products, green factories and green communication. We are reducing our greenhouse gas emissions, working on sustainable recycling of resources and doing more to help us coexist harmoniously with nature.
