Epson commits Ksh 83B for environmental sustainability


Epson has set aside Ksh 83 billion to help in decarbonisation, resource recycling and an accelerated programme to develop environmental technologies over the next decade.

“Depletion of natural resources and other environmental problems have become increasingly evident. Organisations are more aware of the challenges than ever and understand more deeply that pursuing sustainability is essential to environmental protection, economic growth, and social stability,”  said Mukesh Bector Epson Regional Head, East and West Africa.

The Japanese printing and information technology firm says with technology being a determinant in demand for raw materials and energy, it recognises that sustainability is the key catalyst for innovation and its the reason its offering an alternative to cartridges and way of printing which does not use heat in the process.

“Although this optimism in Kenya is encouraging, with one of the highest optimism levels in the world according to our Climate Barometer Survey, there are still a number of gaps in terms of what people are willing to do now and what people are hoping to do in the future. It is not enough to hope for change, every person must make change happen by introducing small switches in their everyday lives, if we are to reach net zero targets at a global and national level,” added Mukesh.

Epson is present at COP27 to further prove its ongoing commitment to providing individuals and businesses with technological options that contribute to combating the climate disaster.
