State of Sustainability Research for Imaging Equipment Consumables

The State of Sustainability Research for Imaging Equipment Consumables provides an overview of the life cycle sustainability impacts of ink and toner cartridges/containers, and paper consumables relative to the footprint of the imaging equipment device. It then identifies strategies for mitigating the most significant environmental impacts. These strategies focus on business practices and design of the imaging equipment device to enable circularity.

The purpose of GEC’s State of Sustainability Research is to identify priority impacts and best practices for mitigating these impacts. It serves as the science-based foundation for developing criteria for the EPEAT ecolabel.

This State of Sustainability Research is currently open for a 60-day public comment period. GEC welcomes stakeholder review and comments using the Public Comment Formand submitting it via e-mail to CRITERIA@gec.orgno later than 11:59 EST on October 18, 2022.
