Epson Bags 2010 DEVNET Award

Tokyo, Oct 26, 2010 (JCN) - Seiko Epson Corp. has received the 2010 DEVNET Award for its efforts to preserve the environment and for its social contributions worldwide.

Established in 2005 by the Japan DEVNET Association, the DEVNET Award is awarded to individuals, groups and organizations that contribute to sustainability in emerging economies in the fields of industry and technology, society and culture, and human resources development.

Epson won the award for its tree-planting program in Kalimantan, Indonesia, which started in November 2000. The company has continued this program by employing the agroforestry method of combining forestry and agriculture, and has succeeded in converting 300 hectares of wasteland into verdant forest that provides local residents with a stable income. In addition to its activities in Kalimantan, Epson is meeting the needs of local residents in other countries and regions of the world as well, through a range of environmental and community programs.
