Epson’s new regional HQ and solutions centre also preaches sustainability

This is the location of Epson South East Asia's new regional HQ.

Epson Southeast Asia officially celebrated its move to a new regional headquarters at Alexandra TechnoPark in Singapore. This is a different location where the company moved their service centre to late last year.

Besides housing some 200 staff, the new SEA headquarters that serves Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam, features two new Solution Centres so partners and customers across the region can discover products and solutions that are good for both business and the environment.

Minister for Sustainability and the Environment Grace Fu, who was the guest of honour at the event, said while the COVID-19 global pandemic has significantly impacted businesses and economies around the world, and changed the way we live, work and play. However, this crisis also presents us with a timely opportunity for reform; to build back better, stronger, and more sustainable than before.

One such sustainability solution is Epson’s PaperLab system. PaperLab is an office-based papermaking system that uses Epson’s unique Dry Fiber Technology, which means it does not use water during the process, unlike traditional paper recycling methods. It is the world’s first dry process office paper making system that uses wastepaper from an office to make new paper for use, and to help promote a circular economy.

Siew Jin Kiat, Regional Managing Director of Epson Singapore (SEA Headquarters) said:

As we move forward on this journey to a low-carbon society, we look to inspire, educate, and motivate businesses across Southeast Asia to operate more sustainably by working closely with our other local Epson offices across the region.

He also added that Epson Southeast Asia would work with the Singapore government and NGOs in this region to promote sustainability.

Epson is partnering with Nat Geo to highlight the effects of global warming on our permafrost.

One example is Epson’s collaboration with National Geographic to raise public awareness on climate change, specifically how the melting permafrost in the Arctic affects the entire planet and how choosing sustainable technology can minimise our impact on the environment.
