At Kodak Alaris, we engineer our products and technologies to promote a healthy global environment by using sustainable and/or recycled materials in our products and services. We offer EPEAT® Registered and Energy Star® Certified Scanners helping governments, businesses and people identify solutions that can help reduce their environmental footprint.
Managed by the Green Electronics Council, EPEAT® is the most trusted source of environmental global product ratings, making it easy for decision makers to select high performance electronics that support their organizations' IT and sustainability goals. The U.S. government alone has purchased more than four million EPEAT®-registered products, more than from any other electronics eco registry.
ENERGY STAR® certified scanners are independently certified to save energy without sacrificing features or functionality. Saving energy is good for the environment and helps to prevent climate change.
By designing our products to last, using high-quality components, and pursuing higher levels of EPEAT® certification across our product line, Kodak Alaris strives to make an impact beyond going paperless.
Kodak Alaris is ISO 9001:2015 and 14001:2105 certified for our design, repair, and manufacturing processes. This shows we are focused on several quality management principles including a strong customer focus and continual improvement of our processes.
Manufacturers register products in EPEAT® based on the devices’ ability to meet certain required and optional criteria that address the full product lifecycle, from design and production to energy use and recycling.
Nearly 50 million tons of electronic waste (approximately 5000 Eiffel Towers) is expected to be produced in 2019, while only 20% of it is collected and recycled properly. At Kodak Alaris, we've committed to a strategy of minimizing our environmental footprint by designing our products to last, using high-quality components and pursuing higher levels of EPEAT® certification across our product line. EPEAT®-registered products meet strict environmental criteria that address the full product lifecycle, from energy conservation and toxic materials to product longevity and end-of-life management. EPEAT® also includes a variety of service-related criteria which focus on takeback and responsible recycling of products, packaging and batteries, as well as the provision of extended warranties and other support services that can significantly extend product life and reduce environmental impact.
Gold-rated products meet all of the required criteria and at least 75% of the optional criteria.
Silver-rated products meet all of the required criteria and at least 50% of the optional criteria.
