Generation Green is Canon's new environmental initiative. This program encompasses imageCLASS Laser Printers, PIXMA Inkjet Printers, and Scanners. Generation Green is designed to provide business partners, customers and consumers a way to learn about the environmentally-friendly approach Canon takes in designing many of its current and future products. The imageCLASS MF4570dn has the following Generation Green characteristics:
Auto-Duplexing - Using automatic 2-sided printing and copying can save you up to 50% of your paper supply.
4 in 1, 2 in 1 Printing - This option allows users to place multiple pages on 1 page, saving up to 75% of your paper supply.
PC Faxing - Send documents directly from your PC to a fax machine to reduce paper and print usage.
Energy Saving Mode - When the imageCLASS MF4570dn enters Energy Saving Mode, it has a low power consumption of 3 watts
of energy in Energy Saving Mode.
On-Demand SURF Technology - On-Demand (Surface Rapid Fixing) technology uses a linear ceramic heater that heats
instantly for fast warm up speeds and Quick First Prints. This results in up to a 75% reduction in energy consumption compared
to conventional roller-fixing systems.
Toner Saving Mode - When the imageCLASS MF4570dn is switched into the toner saving mode, it allows for up to a 20% more
economical toner usage.
Toner Cartridge Recycling Program - Canon was the first in the printing industry to create a toner cartridge
recycling program. Canon toner cartridges are 100% recovered with zero landfill waste.
Hardware Recycling Program - Canon is committed to the world community and the belief that we are building a better
world for future generations. We want to work with our customers to ensure appropriate recycling of certain imageCLASS products
to help improve the environment and our local communities.
Refurbishing Program - The Canon refurbishing facility manages waste stream processes for Canon products, so Canon
has full control over recovery and salvage for imageCLASS products, not third-party vendors.
ENERGY STAR® - Qualified products are 25% more efficient than conventional models. By using less energy these
products reduce greenhouse gas emissions and save energy as well as money. The imageCLASS MF4570dn automatically enters low-power mode
when not in use.
RoHS Compliant - This is a directive from the European Union that restricts the use of hazardous materials found in
electronic products. This product restricts the use of cadmium, mercury, lead, hexavalent chromium, Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBB),
and Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDE).
ISO 14001 - We currently hold the largest Consolidated Certification to the ISO 14001 Standard for our Environmental
Management Systems in the world with over 700 Canon companies certified to the Standard.
Energy Star qualified products and practices help you save money and reduce greenhouse emissions by meeting strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy.

One minor flaw...
We have 5 Canon MPCs in our office... a mix of 4370 and 4570 versions. They function perfectly as advertised. We use the 4370 ADF almost exclusively and heavily. There is a plastic protective cover over the 4370 ADF scan glass (a less than 1" wide glass pane to the left of the full size flat pane). That ADF plastic protector gradually picks up ink, toner, pencil lead, etc., from the documents being scanned in. The output starts to have streaks, turns grayish, and eventually the ADF is unusable...as that plastic protector cannot be cleaned. I'm in the process of ordering replacement protectors in quantity. We've had these units for about 2 years. I have not experienced heavy toner consumption but AFAIK all cartridges included with new printers are only about 1/2 filled compared to the replacement carts. Newbies might not be aware of this.

Can't switch to Energy Saver if toner is nearly out.

Uses toner like you can't believe. Stay away from this one for sure.

Excellent all-in-one for the price
I purchased this printer/scanner/fax for my small business in May 2012. Setup was quick and easy - wifi took a little work but once set up was easy to connect to all computers in the household. Printing is fast, quality is great - have never had a problem with jams. For the price, I would definitely recommend.
