EPSON has achieved platinum status from the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) for reaching industry-leading levels of corporate social responsibility. The RBA is the world’s largest industry coalition dedicated to corporate social responsibility in global supply chains, committed to supporting the rights and wellbeing of workers and communities worldwide. The coalition recognises factories and sites across the world that achieve the highest standards of corporate social responsibility in their production processes, and focuses on fair working conditions, human rights and sustainability.
Employed almost 8,500 people as of March 2021, Epson remains one of the leading manufacturing plants and producers of a wide range of products including large-format printers, home inkjet printers, SIDM printers, projectors and robots. The RBA recognises that the primary value of an onsite compliance audit is not in the identification of issues at a factory, but in the correction of those issues. RBA recognises factories that demonstrate their commitment to corporate responsibility through verified closure of the issues identified in a VAP audit.
