Corporate Citizenship

Approach

Epson is committed to harmonious coexistence with society through programs rooted in local communities throughout the world based on its commitment to being "an indispensable company, trusted throughout the world," as stated in its Management Philosophy.

Recognizing that companies are expected to be even more socially involved, each and every employee will continue to contribute to Epson's standing as a good corporate citizen and facilitate mutually beneficial relationships. Epson's contributions go beyond financial support. Epson emphasizes contributions involving the technologies and knowledge that underpin its business as a way to give something back to society. Going forward, Epson will continue to engage in corporate citizenship activities, including contributions involving manpower.
