Canon offers products that are registered in accordance with EPEAT for Imaging Equipment.
This sustainability tool provides third-party verification of the environmental attributes of imaging equipment. EPEAT considers - among other things - absence of toxic substances, use of recycled and recyclable materials, design for recycling, product longevity, energy efficiency, corporate performance and packaging.
With EPEAT, customers are able to easily identify and select environmentally preferable products.
To be added to the EPEAT registry, an imaging device must meet at least 33 required environmental performance criteria. Products may achieve higher ratings by meeting some or all of 26 additional optional criteria. The rating criteria were developed during a four-year stakeholder consensus process that involved hundreds of representatives from the environmental, research, governmental and manufacturing sectors.

According to EPEAT, since 2006, purchasers choosing EPEAT-registered electronics over products that don’t meet EPEAT’s registration criteria, will help avoid more than 528,000 metric tons of hazardous waste, eliminate enough mercury to fill 4.6 million fever thermometers, and reduce solid waste by the equivalent of 248,000 U.S. households' annual waste.*
* The environmental benefits of purchasing EPEAT-registered products were calculated using the Electronics Environmental Benefits Calculator, developed under a grant by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, based on sales data provided by participating manufacturers.
EPEAT is not owned, controlled or operated by the U.S. EPA. None of EPEAT, the Green Electronics Council or the U.S. EPA endorses or approves Canon's products.
