Approach in Development and Design of Products

RISO KAGAKU CORPORATION endeavors to reduce the environmental burden of its products throughout their entire lifecycle, from design and development to production, distribution, customer use, recycling and disposal.

Policy on Research & Development

RISO's development and design philosophy is to "Create Unique Products." Over the years, RISO has developed a wide range of products that provide advanced print solutions based on its unique print technology, as typified by the RISOGRPAH System. In addition, RISO is aggressively undertaking R&D activities in new fields, including inkjet technology. Inkjet technology has been applied in the Company's new line of high-speed color inkjet printers, the ComColor series. Such an aggressive R&D stance has produced tangible results, enabling RISO to develop the latest RISO ME and SE series digital duplicators with a design that reduces the product's environmental burden, as well as other environment-friendly products, such as RISO SOYINK.

Process for Implementing Environmental Considerations into Products

Process for Environmental Considerations on Our Products

RISO assigns five stages -- from element development to mass production.

In each of these five stages, RISO sets targets for such items as environmental considerations, product quality, costs and schedule. By monitoring the progress of these targets, we make decisions on whether we can proceed to the next stage.

Stage targets for environmental considerations include energy and resource saving, reuse, recycling and disposal.

Examples of Environmental Friendliness

Compliance with the ErP Directive

The EU ErP Directive establishes a framework for the setting of ecodesign requirements for energy-related products known as ErP. Manufacturers of energy-related products under the scheme are obliged to reduce the energy consumption at the design stage. The ErP Directive covers thirty product groups. Lot.6, one of the groups, defines the limit value of off-mode/standby power consumption. The following products comply with the Directive by automatically entering standby mode whose power consumption is 0.5W or less.
