Minimizing environmental impacts through product assessment and design has been a longstanding commitment for Kodak Alaris’ Document Imaging business.
An example of our dedication is our recent membership with the Green Electronics Council after it expanded its EPEAT (Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool) Registry system to include imaging equipment. Kodak Alaris quickly seized the opportunity to register 13 of its document scanners because aligning products with a consensus global rating system such as EPEAT is important. It helps our customers recognize environmental performance and satisfy sustainable public procurement policies.
The EPEAT system rates products on a lifecycle basis, addressing the elimination of toxic substances, the use of recycled and recyclable materials, their design for recycling, product longevity, energy efficiency, corporate performance and packaging, among other criteria.
Businesses we work with, such as service providers and government agencies, require innovative products that meet specific environmental standards and deliver a positive impact for their organization and customers. The EPEAT Registry demonstrates Kodak Alaris’ commitment to the design of environmentally friendly, sustainable products that are more durable, efficient, and long-lasting.
Happy Earth Day!
