Social Responsibility

At Epson Portland Inc., we take a comprehensive approach to corporate social responsibility (CSR) through effective use of energy and resources, employee engagement, and corporate giving campaigns.


Environmental Management

Our Environmental Management System (EMS) has been third-party certified since 1998. We are ISO 14001:2015 certified.


Since February of 2003, we have been a patron-level participant in Portland General Electric’s Clean WindSM power program, currently purchasing 62% of our power from wind-generation facilities.

Employee Engagement

Our employees are critical to the success of our environmental responsibility initiatives. Several reuse and recycling solutions were innovative suggestions from our team, and employee volunteers donate more than 100 hours each year through a variety of programs.


We manufacture with zero waste to landfill since March of 2000. Any waste that cannot be reused or recycled is sent to a local waste-to-energy facility where it is incinerated to create electricity.

Better Products for a Better Future

At Epson, we know that planning for the future requires a strong commitment to the environment. That is why we strive to create innovative products that are reliable, recyclable, and energy efficient.


Learn about how we are running a sustainable company and operating within compliance of local, state, and federal regulations in the Epson Portland Inc. Annual Sustainability Report.

Corporate Giving

Epson Portland’s Giving program is designed to reinforce our commitment to good corporate citizenship by responding to the needs of our community. Priority consideration is given to organizations that are located and active in Washington County, Oregon, and Cowlitz County, Washington. Our primary areas of focus are education, community livability, and environmental preservation.
