Epson and National Geographic Partnership to help in the Fight against Climate Change

  • News

Epson Australia has become the first Epson office in the world to start promoting the protection of the world’s permafrost in partnership with National Geographic via their newly launched ‘Turn Down the Heat’ campaign.

This partnership will look to raise awareness of how we can reduce our impact on global warming – anything from our homes to offices. The new campaign is spearheaded by National Geographic Explorer, Dr Katey Walter Anthony, who oversees arctic observatories in Alaska and Russia. You can see some of her pioneering research featured in some of the collaboration with Epson at www.epson.com.au/heat-free-technology.

“The Arctic is literally melting before our eyes. We estimate that up to 10% of the projected global warming this century could come from thawing permafrost, and that affects the entire Earth. What happens in the Arctic does not stay in the Arctic. Our choices really do matter in work and in life. And when businesses and people make smart decisions about what technology we use, that will also make a positive difference for our environment.”

“Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do at Epson, and we are committed to not only lowering our own environmental footprint but helping customers to do so too. We hope to make a difference in overcoming global environmental issues with our customers and business partners through our technologies.”

Yasunori Ogawa, Epson global president.
