Epson considers any action designed to realise Epson’s Management Philosophy to be a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activity.

In addition to ensuring compliance, observing corporate ethics, and fulfilling responsibilities at a level that exceeds what society requires, Epson will fully demonstrate their unique creativity in CSR by creating value through the products they develop and manufacture. In recent times Epson developed a materiality matrix that identifies key CSR themes, such as environmental issues, respect for human rights, human resources development, and governance. Epson use this matrix to guide and strengthen their CSR activities and to help make the world a better place.

To help ensure that Epson’s activities are effective, the company specified action items and targets (KPI) for each key CSR theme. Epson periodically revise the key CSR themes and action items based on feedback from stakeholders and will systematically drive continuous improvements.
