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.
Our new toner ‘fuses’ on the page and prints at a lower temperature, reducing printer power consumption by up to half.
Our long-life components save resources, such as amorphous silicon drums with a lifetime up to 4,800,000 prints, double conventional drums.
We designed the first printers to use a toner-only system, avoiding the need to replace plastic cartridges, reducing environmental impact.
We’ve celebrated 25 years of innovation since the launch of the first ECOSYS laser printer, setting the standard for eco-friendly printing.
By providing energy efficient cooking stoves to families in Kenya, over 120,000 tonnes of CO2 has been offset since 2013.
Our commitment to ecology has resulted in almost every product we offer being designed as a green product. Our CSR Report tells you more.
We launched a free-of-charge direct collection scheme of toner cassettes for thermal recycling for Kyocera clients across Europe.
A new packaging material made of moulded pulp to protect our printer paper feeders during shipment has won a Technical Packaging Award.
