On a stunning Autumnal day at one of Sydney’s most iconic harbourside locations, I was (happily) schooled in the impact heat is having on the environment. It was also a lesson in the amount of power required to perform a task that we take for granted every single day.

EPSON has partnered with National Geographic on a campaign to draw awareness to the need to conserve heat in something as mundane as printing and the positive environmental effects it can have. Who knew printers could do so much damage?!

“When businesses and people make smart decisions about what technology we use, that will also make a positive difference for our environment.”

– Katey Walter Anthony

With almost 80,000 employees and annual revenues of almost $11B and 70% of that revenue coming from printing solutions, EPSON is extremely well placed to drive consumer and business awareness on the need to TURN DOWN THE HEAT when printing.

Burning fossil fuels to create electricity produces vast amounts of CO2. Right now as a company and individuals, we need to act to save energy and start using renewable energy sources. Making a sustainable choice is now essential, not optional.
