Four Additional Panasonic Scanners Receive EPEAT® Bronze Rating

Ratings emphasize the company’s longstanding commitment to sustainability and efficiency

NEWARK, N.J. – Panasonic, a leading producer of high quality document management and imaging solutions, today announced that its KV-S5046H, KV-S5076H, KV-S1026C-MKII and KV-S1037X scanners have received the EPEAT Bronze rating. This distinction follows Panasonic’s announcement that this spring, its KV-S2087, KV-S8127 and KV-S8147 scanners were registered EPEAT® Bronze as well as the KV-S1027C and KV-S1057C scanners, which received recognition last year.

“We are thrilled that these additional scanner models have received EPEAT Bronze ratings, acknowledging our dedication to the environment, year after year,” said Joseph Odore, Product Manager for Document & Imaging Products, Panasonic System Solutions Company of North America. “Our scanners are economically and environmentally efficient, and we’re proud that our approach to design environmentally conscious products continues to be recognized by the leading ecolabel for the IT sector.”

Panasonic’s EPEAT Bronze certified KV-S5046H, KV-S5076H, KV-S1026C-MKII and KV-S1037X scanners are designed to meet the needs of businesses across industries and of varying sizes. While the KV-S5046H and KV-S5076H departmental scanners are perfect for large, busy office settings where speed and accuracy are integral, the KV-S1026C-MKII and KV-S1037X scanners are ideal for small- to medium- sized businesses looking to transform paper documents into high-quality digital documents and simplify records management via a compact device.

“The Green Electronics Council is pleased that these Panasonic scanners are now available to the many large-scale purchasers who demand products that are not only high-performing but also environmentally and socially responsible,” said Nancy Gillis, CEO, Green Electronics Council. “In meeting the rigorous EPEAT bronze criteria, these products offer a reduced environmental impact across their lifecycles, creating a healthier environment and reducing hazardous waste. We are pleased that Panasonic continues to dedicate itself to sustainability throughout its decades in business.”

Launched in 2006, EPEAT is managed by the Green Electronics Council, a non-profit organization that aims to build a world of only sustainable electronics. The EPEAT program allows device manufacturers to self-declare which EPEAT criteria their products meet, and requires independent verification of those claims through 3rd-party verifiers. Currently, the EPEAT ecolabel covers five product categories: Computers and Displays, Imaging Equipment, Televisions, Servers and Mobile Phones.
