LONG BEACH, Calif.—Epson receives a gold rating for corporate social responsibility (CSR) from EcoVadis, an independent global firm that provides sustainability ratings across a wide variety of industries in more than 100 countries. This is the third consecutive year Epson has earned the gold rating.
The top rank, which reflects Epson’s commitment to achieving international corporate social responsibility standards, also acknowledges the company as being “outstanding” in sustainable procurement, as well as highlighting its achievement in labor and human rights and its actions to preserve the environment, the company says.
“Corporate social responsibility is at the heart of everything we do at Epson and this excellent achievement in CSR is as important and valuable to our business as financial success,” says Minoru Usui, global president of Epson.
