Epson’s PrecisionCore Inkjet Wins DataMaster Lab’s GREEN Award 2022

Epson has won this year’s DataMaster Lab GREEN Award in recognition of the environmental benefits afforded by its Heat-free PrecisionCore inkjet printers and MFPs and the sustainability measures employed as part of their development, production and distribution. DataMaster is an independent laboratory with expertise in professional document imaging solutions.

DataMaster acknowledges that one of the primary environmental impacts of printing is energy use and has recognised the reduction that can be achieved by Epson’s Heat-free PrecisionCore inkjets. Compared to laser printers, this averages up to 83% less power consumed, which can amount to a very significant saving across a fleet.

That said, this award is not just about electrical consumption. Edward Bilson, Technical Director of DataMaster Lab, said, "We take into account accreditations for manufacturing facilities, levels of noxious emissions – and the nature and lifetime of a machine’s consumables. When you consider the carbon footprint of a consumable item’s manufacture, transportation, distribution and its final resting place in a landfill site, you realise that all consumables need to be designed with the environment in mind and have the longest lifetime possible. The winners of DataMaster Lab’s GREEN Award have the least impact on our precious environment."

Since 2018 Epson has invested considerably into developing their PrecisionCore printhead. Last year, the company committed to investing 100 billion Yen to develop sustainable technologies, decarbonisation, and resource recycling. They also committed to becoming underground resource free by 2050.
