Environmental Policy

Seiko Epson Microdevices Operations Division (Quartz devices Operations)
Miyazaki Epson Environmental policy

Drive progressive environmental initiatives by pursuing innovation in compact, energy-saving, high-precision technologies revolving around our core QMEMS technology, thereby providing customer value in the form of reduced environmental impacts.

To accomplish this, we will:

  1. create and provide the ultimate in compact, energy-saving, high-precision crystal devices, and build and revolutionize production processes that increase throughput while reducing environmental impacts.
  2. strictly observe environmental laws, ordinances and voluntary commitments, establish independent standards as needed, and strive to prevent pollution by continually improving on our environmental practices.
  3. strive to raise the level of our environmental practices by setting and pursuing environmental goals and targets and by regularly reviewing our environmental management systems.

QMEMS is a combination of "Quartz," a crystalline material with excellent characteristics such as excellent frequency stability and high precision, and "MEMS" (micro electro mechanical system).
QMEMS devices, produced via a microfabrication process on a quartz material instead of on a semiconductor material like MEMS, offer high performance in a compact package.
