Canon España, S. A. is a sponsor and founding member of Ecofimática.
ONE OF THE BEST-KNOWN BRANDS IN THE WORLD. Since 1937 we have manufactured products that let people do amazing things in life and business.
Over the years, the brand has built a reputation for quality, reliability and innovation and we have been rewarded with a strong relationship with our customers.

Dysteca has been the exclusive importer of the DEVELOP brand to the Canary Islands since 1987. The brand has always stood out for its respect for the environmental conditions of its products, and through membership of Ecofimática, which implements a complete waste management system, the company aims to take part in working to conserve of our planet.
Sustainability is the compass that sets our course. We’re fully aware that the word ‘sustainability’ isn’t a loose term that companies should bandy about. It’s far more than that. It’s a key aspect of the future and sustainable growth of our planet. It’s a commitment, a responsibility that we should all recognise and in recent years it has taken shape under the United Nations Foundation 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
Epson has been working to achieve the 17 SDG for several years. Because we don’t know how to work any other way. Sustainability is part of our make-up and we integrate it into everything we do.
But our environmental commitment goes much further. We also take the behaviour of our collaborators into account. We work closely with all our stakeholders, including Ecofimática. We want to help companies and organisations meet the environmental goals and save money at the same time.
During 2020, we reduced green house gas emissions per employee by 8.56%, recycled 23,700 tonnes of materials such as batteries, paper, wood, plastic and waste electrical equipment, and succeeded in entirely powering buildings belonging to Epsom by renewable energy, among other initiatives.
But our passion for sustainability goes far beyond that. We have seen that it will become a key ingredient to companies’ success. For this reason, in 2021 we have decided to work together and harder than ever to make the best decisions and create a more sustainable future for people and the planet.
Paperlab is a clear example of how we are going to achieve it: the first safe destruction and recycling system for paper documents that can be used to create new paper from waste without using water.
These and many other initiatives will be included in a new edition of our European Corporate Responsibility Report, The Green Choice, and in local Sustainability Reports. We are also renewing our Environmental Vision 2050, a declaration of intent on the company’s environmental objectives for 2050.

As a socially responsible business, Lexmark focuses on creating innovative, high quality image technology and solutions that are socially and environmentally responsible.
This has led the company to establish a business model based on a circular economy and on reducing its environmental impact. This means that its operations control both energy consumption and waste emissions. But even more importantly, it develops products with a clear philosophy: planned durability or, to put it another way, products designed to last with expansion options and the supply of suitable parts so that one of our products takes as long as possible to become obsolete.
Furthermore, through the use of innovative use of postconsumption recycled materials, we positively influence our surroundings by reducing the consumption of new natural resources and the amount of waste disposed in dumps. But that’s not all: Lexmark solutions are designed to ensure users reduce their consumption of utilities and energy, also helping to reduce physical infrastructures with cloud solutions and establishing energy savings or toner savings solutions.
To complete the cycle, as part of this philosophy, in addition to collecting and recycling our devices, we collect and recycle our consumables through the “Collected by Lexmark” programme. This programme ensures that 100% of the millions of cartridges that we collect each year around the world are reused and recycled.
Each year Lexmark publishes these and other data related to environmental sustainability in the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility Report, which can be viewed at csr.lexmark.com
At Mastertec-Develop we believe that the prevention of waste can help protect the environment while offering economic benefits. Environmental developments over the past few years has meant that we have progressed from suggestions to environmental good practice obligations. Now we need to take a further step: be prepared for the future. We are therefore concerned with the identification and elimination of different types of waste (including raw materials, energy, activities and time), thereby also improving our economic efficiency. Our equipment is manufactured with long-lasting components to avoid regularly replacing spare parts and that leads to the generation of waste. Meanwhile, producing the polymerised toner used in our devices emits 40% less CO2 than the process used to manufacture conventional toner.
Mastertec has certified environmental management in its organisation in accordance with the requirements of standard UNE-EN ISO 14001:2015.
