Protection of the environment is a priority

Environmental issues are common to all mankind and every person contributes to the preservation and welfare of both our society and the global environment. These two principles are the foundations of the Roland DG environmental policy. Moreover, the company considers the protection of the environment as one of its biggest responsibilities. In 1999 and 2000, Roland DG was granted an ISO certification and since then, the company has implemented several systems to improve the product quality and decrease the ecological footprint.

Production with central attention to the environment

Every Roland DG product is developed and produced conform the following rules:

  • Roland DG offers high-quality products that meet international regulations and requirements. Moreover, we continually investigate our systems to improve our products and company processes.
  • We strive to use sources in an effective way. We've set goals to reduce and recycle waist, avoid pollution caused by chemical substances and develop and produce products with low impact on the environment.
  • Roland DG communicates its environmental policy to all staff members by means of posters and websites. The company also expects each employee to work in accordance with these regulations.

Roland Eco-Label

In 2007, Roland DG Corporation introduced its own Environmental Label based on standards stipulated by ISO 14021 for Type II environmental labelling. This Eco-Label certifies products that comply with the company's internal environmental standards. These standards prescribe products to:

1. Prevent global warming
2. Use recyclable resources
3. Increase environmental awareness
4. Disclose information on the environmental aspects of the product

Ecological goals

Each year, Roland DG sets a range of goals in order to meet the principles of its environmental policy. We give you some examples:

  • Implementation of LCA: LCA is the abbreviation of Life Cycle Assessment and analyzes products in order to determine the environmental impact of each step in the life cycle.
  • Introduction of an eco label: Roland DG Corporation introduced the eco label to promote the development of products in an optimal relation to the environment. The eco label also aims to communicate environmental information to customers.
  • Reduction of packaging material and paper consumption.
  • Zero emission by promoting recycling: use of easy recyclable materials in the construction of machines.
  • Use of sun and wind energy and LED lighting
