Kyocera complies with new “Blue Angel” guidelines
21 September 2007
The protection of the environment through the development of sustainable technologies and the use of resource-saving materials is a long-standing tradition at Kyocera. The fact that the laser printers FS-2000D, FS-3900D, FS-4000DN and FS-6950DN comply with all the new guidelines for the achievement of Germany’s “Blue Angel” eco label reconfirms this philosophy.
The Kyocera laser printers FS-2000D, FS-3900D, FS-4000DN and FS-6950DN also comply with the new requirements and may continue to bear the “Blue Angel” mark. The basis for the high level environmental sustainability of Kyocera´s printer and copier systems is the Ecosys technology, due to which the sole consumable is the toner; waste is thereby reduced to a minimum. At the same time, this worldwide patented technology cuts operating costs. The award of the “Blue Angel” has a long-standing tradition at Kyocera. As early as 1997, the FS-1700 was the first printer in the world to be awarded the “Blue Angel” eco label. Since then, the UBA has regularly awarded the eco label to Kyocera´s further generations of printers.
The “Blue Angel” should serve as an aid for consumers to enable them to opt for particularly environmentally-friendly products. For ten years now, we have never failed to comply with these guidelines. Our customers can therefore be sure that Kyocera will offer them resource-saving solutions for ecological printers and copiers,” explains Detlef Herb, Environmental Officer at Kyocera Mita Deutschland.
