Environmentally Conscious Design Guide
In order to support a sustainable society, it is necessary to review the environmental impact of our products over the long term.
The Characteristics of the System
Our Environmentally Friendly Program Standards establish four environmental goals: Global warming prevention, resource conservation, going green and information disclosure. These four environmental goals are divided into nine standards such as reduction in power consumption and adoption of reusable components. The product must meet one of the nine targets to meet the environmental goals. Meeting two or more environmental goal standards qualifies a product for the company's internal certification as an Environmentally Conscious Product and for Roland DG's Eco-Label. Eco-Labels are placed on the product and displayed in company brochures. In addition, Environmentally Friendly Assessment Reports are available on our website for certified products.
