Epson has launched a campaign called #MakeTheSwitch to encourage people around the world to turn to energy-saving activities.
The global digital campaign will focus on raising awareness about the importance of energy conservation and how big an impact individual efforts can make as a collective movement.
Epson will feature a series of energy-saving activities such as using LED bulbs, taking public transportation, and making heat-free meals at home.
The #MakeTheSwitch campaign is part of the company’s broader commitment to sustainability. With Epson’s Environmental Vision 2050, the technology giant has set goals of becoming a carbon-negative and underground resource-free organization by 2050, which means eliminating the use of non-renewable resources such as oil and metals in its operations.
Epson is working to achieve these goals through a variety of initiatives, including developing more energy-efficient products, reducing waste, and improving energy efficiency in its manufacturing facilities.
According to the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions, 31% of greenhouse gas emissions come from electricity and heat. One of the many ways energy can be conserved is by using energy-saving appliances at home and at work. For printing needs, switching to Epson’s energy-efficient inkjet printers with heat-free technology lowers power consumption, allowing users to reduce their environmental impact.
“There are several ways we can reduce our energy consumption and save the environment,” said Masako Kusama, President and Director of Epson Philippines. “For Epson, we aim to realize a sustainable future by driving technological advances based on our philosophy of efficient, compact, and precise innovation.”
