Lexmark’s Environmental Commitment
Lexmark strives to be an environmentally responsible provider of products and services. We continue to develop products, features and solutions that offer our customers opportunities to reduce the environmental impact of their printing and imaging activities.
By incorporating Life Cycle Assessment results in our product design process, we develop sustainable products that combine high standards of performance, efficiency, and environmental stewardship through each stage of their life cycle.
Through the innovative use of post consumer recycled materials, we make a positive impact on the environment, reducing both the consumption of new natural resources and the amount of waste in landfills.
All of Lexmark’s manufacturing sites are certified to rigorous quality, environmental and safety standards recognized worldwide, including ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and OSHAS 18001.
Lexmark products have been awarded many ecolabels including German Blue Angel, EPEAT and US Energy Star certifications.
Lexmark recovers millions of used cartridges each year that are either reused or recycled via the award-winning Lexmark Cartridge Collection Program (LCCP).
Year after year, Lexmark continues to be recognized as an industry leader for our sustainability initiatives and environmental programs.
In 2012, Lexmark earned the Manufacturing Leadership Council’s Manufacturing Leadership 100 Award for Sustainability for our cartridge recycling process. Lexmark was also named a High Achiever in the sustainability category with the highest score among award recipients.
For the third year in a row, Lexmark has been named one of Corporate Responsibility Magazine’s 100 Best Corporate Citizens for excellence in both environmental and human rights.
In 2013, Lexmark earned a second Manufacturing Leadership 100 Award for Sustainability for an innovative packaging project that uses paper recovered during cartridge manufacturing to create pulp packaging cushions that protect toner cartridges during shipment.
Lexmark’s environmental programs keep more than 30 million pounds of solid waste out of waste streams annually.
