Epson Renews Commitment To The Future Of Sustainable Businesses In SEA

Epson Southeast Asia officially celebrated its move to a new regional headquarters at Alexandra TechnoPark, Singapore, via a hybrid launch event. The new SEA headquarters features two new Solution Centres that enable partners and customers from all over the region, including Malaysia, to discover products and solutions that are good for both business and the environment. These include Epson’s sustainable innovations in printing, visual imaging and robotics, as well as Epson PaperLab, the world’s first dry process office paper making system.


“The move to our new regional headquarters represents three things: first, it shows Epson’s continued confidence in Singapore as a regional business hub. Second, our commitment to transforming the way businesses work across Southeast Asia through products and solutions that offer both productivity and sustainability. Third, this move brings sustainable choices closer to our customers in the region,” said Mr. Siew Jin Kiat, Regional Managing Director of Epson Singapore (SEA Headquarters).


“Sustainability is imperative in today’s business economy and by choosing Epson, they are also choosing better for the environment, so they win two ways–on higher productivity and lower environmental impact. We have made it simpler for our customers to lower their carbon footprint.” 


“As we move forward on this journey to a low-carbon society, we look to inspire, educate and motivate businesses across Southeast Asia to operate more sustainably by working closely with our other local Epson offices across the region,” he added.


Daisuke Hori, Managing Director of Epson Malaysia, echoed a similar sentiment: “This new focus on driving greater business sustainability across the region is timely and we look forward to being an advocate among Malaysian businesses to adopt greater sustainability.” 


Earlier this year, Epson Malaysia held a virtual forum themed “Building Business Resilience through Sustainable Technology” to drive conversations surrounding environmental-friendly business practices and its impact in the recovering economy. The forum also includes a Memorandum of Understanding signing between Epson Malaysia and leading environmental NGO EcoKnights on the partnership for Be Cool campaign which includes RM20,000 donation for trees planting initiative. 


A highlight of the event was the introduction of Epson’s revolutionary PaperLab, a key milestone on Epson’s journey to promote a circular economy. PaperLab is an office-based papermaking system that uses Epson’s unique Dry Fiber Technology, which means it does not use water during the process, unlike traditional paper recycling methods. PaperLab can enable businesses to reduce environmental impact by recycling used paper.


It can also upcycle and give added value to the new paper by customising the output in terms of thickness, size and colour. Lastly, since the process involves 3 stages: defibrating, binding and forming, it can securely destroy confidential documents.
