Building a Recycling Society

Developing Eco-products (Casio Green Star Products)

In order to minimize the environmental impact of its products, Casio is promoting the development of environmentally friendly products in every aspect of planning and design. In 1993, Casio began product assessment in order to systematize and promote its development of eco products. New products had to undergo a preliminary assessment for their environmental impact and meet certain criteria in order to be certified as Casio Green Products. Casio has developed many environmentally friendly products.
Since fiscal 2010, Casio has offered products that achieved outstanding evaluations under more rigorous assessments of environmental performance as Casio Green Star Products. In fiscal 2017, the Group started offering Casio Super Green Star Products, which have even greater environmental performance. Since then, Casio has been working to develop even better environmentally friendly products.
