Eco-label Programs

Many Xerox products meet or exceed the requirements of the world's most widely-recognised certifications for product environmental performance - the international ENERGY STAR® and Canada's Environmental Choice EcoLogo eco labels. Xerox's eco label products provide environmental benefits without compromising performance, quality or reliability. And the energy- and paper-saving features of these machines bring value, efficiency and flexibility to your work environment.

The International ENERGY STAR Program
The ENERGY STAR® program was initiated in 1993 by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, with Xerox as a Charter Partner, as a way to certify products with specific energy saving attributes. A product's ability to enter a power-saver mode, or series of modes, after a specified period of non-use is a key factor in winning ENERGY STAR status. The program's requirements become more challenging every few years. For more information visit www.energystar.gov.

On April 1, 2007, the International ENERGY STAR program significantly tightened the ENERGY STAR requirements to increase the benefits to the customer and to the environment. Products manufactured after April 1, 2007 are now measured against Typical Electricity Consumption (TEC). Duplex options, signage and documentation are also required.

Canada's Environmental Choice EcoLogo Program
The Environmental Choice program uses the EcoLogo to help consumers identify environmentally-preferable products and services. EcoLogo-certified office equipment must meet requirements for materials conservation, energy efficiency and low emissions. Xerox has been a leader in offering EcoLogo-certified products since 1996.
