Environmental Credentials

For nearly a decade, Roland DG’s global business has been proactive in establishing environmentally sound business practices that have both reduced the environmental impact of its products and led to the adoption of cleaner, more energy efficient manufacturing practices.

ISO 9001:2008 standards

Every Roland product today is designed and manufactured through processes that meet ISO 9001:2008 standards. These standards require the company to use recyclable materials, increase environmental awareness, to prevent global warming and disclose information on the environmental aspects of each product.


In 2013, Roland DG’s ECO-SOL MAX and ECO-SOL MAX2 inks received the GREENGUARD Gold UL 2818 certification. This means that they meet some of the world’s most rigorous standards for low emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into indoor air.

Each year, Roland DG sets a range of goals in order to meet the principles of its environmental policy. Examples include: reduction in packaging materials and paper consumption, using easily recyclable materials in the construction of Roland products and using sun and wind energy and LED lighting in the manufacturing environments whenever possible.

Roland products introduced after 1 September 2007 feature the company’s ECO-Label which meet ISO 14021 standards for Type II labelling by clearly communicating the environmental attributes of every product to consumers.

Roland will continue to embrace new environmental initiatives that are in keeping with worldwide standards. We welcome this business challenge and the positive impact our efforts will have on the environment. For more information on our environmental activities, read our Annual Environmental Report.
