Kyocera and the Environment


Kyocera’s Objective is to Manufacture Superior Products with a Low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and Minimize the Impact on the Environment.

ECOSYS printers incorporate a patented long life drum which is separate from the toner container, eliminating drum replacement when toner is depleted – and reducing landfill waste. ECOSYS printers provide a printing solution that incorporates long life consumables and one of the lowest costs per print. The operating costs of traditional cartridge-based printers can easily exceed many times the original purchase price during the life of the product.

By eliminating the need to continually replace cartridges, ECOSYS printers do their part in helping reduce environmental waste – an added benefit for companies looking to enhance their environmental initiatives.


ECOSYS Printers

Printers that have earned the ENERGY STAR label can significantly decrease the device’s power use. ENERGY STAR qualified printers automatically enter a low-power “sleep” mode after a period of inactivity. Spending a large portion of time in low-power mode not only saves energy but helps printers run more efficiently and last longer. Since office equipment is generally kept on 24 hours per day, power management features are important for saving energy and energy-related costs.

Multifunctional Products (MFPs)

Monochrome and Color Multifunctional Products (MFPs) combine printing, scanning, copying and faxing into one space-saving unit. When powered down, MFPs that have earned an ENERGY STAR rating can considerably reduce energy costs associated with use. Low-power mode saves energy while helping MFPs run more efficiently and last longer. Since most MFPs are left on for long periods of time, power management features are critical for energy conservation.

Kyocera’s Commitment to the Environment is the Basis of our Voluntary Partnership with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Ensuring Our Products Meet the High Standards of the ENERGY STAR® Program.

As the government-backed, trusted symbol for energy efficiency, the ENERGY STAR label identifies high efficiency and designates superior energy performance in business products. For more information on the ENERGY STAR program, please visit

Kyocera manufactures energy compliant printers, monochrome and color multifunctional products (MFPs), as well as wide format devices. Many of these products employ our patented ECOSYS Technology, a printing solution that incorporates long-life consumables with an industry-leading low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
