Visioneer's Commitment to Sustainability
Most Visioneer and Xerox DocuMate products meet or exceed the requirements of the world’s most widely-recognized certifications for product environmental performance - the international ENERGY STAR® and RoHS.
The ENERGY STAR program was initiated in 1993 by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as a way to certify products with specific energy saving attributes. A product’s ability to enter a power-saver mode, or series of modes, after a specified period of non-use is a key factor in winning ENERGY STAR status. The program’s requirements become more challenging every few years. For more information visit www.energystar.gov.
On April 1, 2007, the International ENERGY STAR program significantly tightened the ENERGY STAR requirements to increase the benefits to the customer and to the environment. Products manufactured after April 1, 2007 are now measured against Typical Electricity Consumption (TEC). Duplex options, signage and documentation are also required.
Each new generation of Visioneer and Xerox DocuMate products offers more functionality and uses less energy – saving our customers money and reducing their carbon footprint. All new products launched are designed to meet the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS). The directive limits the amount of certain hazardous substances from electrical and electronic equipment sold so those metals never find their way into landfills where they can eventually be released into the environment. RoHS is a European Union directive, but Visioneer has embraced it for products worldwide. Additional information can be found here www.rohs.eu.
