For the first time, Epson is awarded a AAA rating, the highest rating in the MSCI ESG Ratings in 2024.

MSCI ESG Ratings is a global ESG investment index provided by MSCI. MSCI researches and analyses a company’s response to ESG-related risks and opportunities and assigns one of seven ratings ranging from AAA at the top to CCC at the bottom.

Epson believes its first AAA rating is due to its commitment to meeting internationally recognised standards of CSR procurement and its enhancing governance organisation and human capital development systems in 2023.

Epson identified four material issues it can address: achieving sustainability in a circular economy, advancing the frontiers of industry, improving the quality of life, and fulfilling its social responsibility. These align with the company’s value creation story that depicts how it will solve societal issues and provide value.

The Epson Group’s purpose statement is: “Our philosophy of efficient, compact, and precise innovation enriches lives and helps create a better world.” To fulfil our purpose in society, we will continue to evolve our sustainability management initiatives, which resolve societal issues and drive corporate growth.”

Epson has also been selected as a constituent of the MSCI Japan ESG Select Leaders Index and the MSCI Japan Empowering Women Index (WIN), as well as all other ESG indices covering Japanese equities adopted by the Government Pension Investment Fund (GPIF).
