Epson Company Partners With 800 Institutions to Promote Education in Schools

Epson Company has allocated Sh83 billion to be spent over the next decade on innovation and technology to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) 2030.

Mr Mukesh Bector, Regional Head of Epson for East and West Africa, stated that Epson, a Japanese printing and information technology company, will concentrate on decarburization, resource cycling, and an expedited initiative to create environmental solutions.

Bector stated that the company had implemented procedures that would allow it to cooperate with societies and communities to achieve the UN goals while utilizing manufacturing techniques linked with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

He stated that the depletion of natural resources and other environmental issues have become more apparent, a fact that has made organizations more mindful of the challenges of pursuing sustainability, which is crucial for environmental protection, economic growth, and social stability.

“Epson recognizes that sustainability is the key catalyst for innovation and this is why the company is changing the way people print by offering an alternative to cartridges and a way of printing which does not use heat in the process,” said Bector.

He said that the company has worked with at least 800 institutions that have paid for printers and educational materials to help schools that don’t have access to technology improve and offer a good education.

“The funding we have set aside will also be utilized to further streamline manufacturing processes and educate our partners and improve research processes,” said Bector.

He said that the education pillar is now the most crucial part of Epson’s Sustainable Development Goals because technology has made education more interactive in remote places.

He said that the company is very proud of how it helps teachers and students by putting interactive projectors in remote areas.

“We work a lot with education institutions to provide live content and a live feed in a virtual classroom with our solutions,” he added.

The Regional Head was addressing a media workshop to create awareness of how Epson has embraced sustainability in its production process to achieve a competitive advantage that was hosted at a Nairobi hotel on Tuesday.

He announced that the 75-year-old company had sold at least 70 million eco-tank devices since their introduction a decade ago.

Kenya is the first country in Africa to get the brand, and before selling its products, the company always ensures it has a solid, reliable service infrastructure.

“The popularity of this machine is due to its running on low cost and is very low user intervention,” he said.

Bector stated that the company had varied its inventions over the years and today has more than 30 compliant models. He also claimed that the company would continue introducing valuable new goods.

He says we focus on client products, small enterprises, education, printing, and robotics.

As the company works toward renewable energy, innovation, technology, and solutions are some of the most important things it focuses on to become one of the best print, visual, and innovative technology producers.

Epson claims that switching from laser printing to inkjet printing reduces energy consumption by up to 83 percent.

At the same time, its cartridge-free printers reduce plastic waste, as one set of ink bottles is equivalent to 79 ink cartridges, saving approximately 1.6 million metric tons of plastic-based consumables through the sale of more than 70 million EcoTank printers worldwide.

The business produces printers, ink, projectors, and cartridges.

Epson Tech Sales Generalist, Local for East Africa, Charles Muhuko, and Epson Marketing Services Specialist for East and West Africa, Catherine Kihara, were also present.
