Canon Partners with EPA Energy Star

To help you save energy and money, while making a difference for the environment, Canon has partnered voluntarily with the EPA for over ten years to design products that meet the high standards of its ENERGY STAR Program. This program promotes the development and introduction of energy-efficient products to combat global warming and other environmental issues.

As an ENERGY STAR partner since 1993, Canon has qualified more than 200 products that incorporate original and advanced energy-efficient technologies, without compromising features or performance. Canon has received eleven ENERGY STAR Awards for protecting the environment through manufacturing energy-efficient products.


ENERGY STAR equals saving money.

ENERGY STAR qualified imaging equipment, printers, scanners, and all-in-one devices cost about the same as standard imaging equipment, but use less electricity. In fact, using ENERGY STAR qualified equipment that meets the new specification (e.g., computer, monitor, printer, and fax machine) in your home office can save you $115 over the life of the products.

Did you know?

If all businesses replaced their stock of imaging equipment with new units meeting these new ENERGY STAR requirements, Americans will save 3 billion kWh/yr (nearly 10% of current commercial imaging equipment consumption), that savings translates into $2.50 per 100 square foot of US office floor space.

As higher energy cost and global warming become more of a concern for consumers, we are committed to offering solutions that help our customers save money, conserve energy and improve the quality of our environment.

So start saving now by choosing Canon ENERGY STAR-qualified Products.
