Epson Australia joins the Energy Efficiency Council (EEC) as part of their ongoing commitment to the development of sustainable technology. A great partnership for the organisation given their work in this field has led to the WorkForce Enterprise series of inkjet printers consuming up to 87% less power than a comparable laser printer. The membership places Epson amongst the likes of ANZ, Schneider Electric and Signify.
Energy Efficiency Council CEO Luke Menzel
“Over the past decade, the EEC has been a vehicle for bringing together individuals and organisations with a deep interest in energy efficiency, and for coordinating effort that drives change. Epson’s commitment to sustainability and energy efficiency is clear, and we are delighted to welcome them as one of our most senior and passionate members. We look forward to working with the team to further our shared goal of making sensible, cost effective demand side solutions standard practice across the Australian economy.”
“The decision to partner with the Energy Efficiency Council was an easy one because both organisations share common values when it comes to energy efficiency. Epson is playing an active role in helping Australian businesses reduce their energy consumption by delivering high quality products that require less energy to operate, without compromising on performance or cost.”Epson Australia GM Craig Heckenberg
