A responsible way to work

Now you can seamlessly share and distribute digital documents as well as preview files to make changes prior to printing, all of which help to reduce the use of paper and toner. Print drivers are defaulted to duplex documents to encourage two-sided printing and reduce waste. And with Secure Print, documents are sent to a device but not printed until a password is entered, further contributing to paper waste reduction.

A clear strategy

Greater energy efficiency

From the inside out, the imageRUNNER ADVANCE 4200 Series is designed for high-energy efficiency and stellar performance. The combination of Canon’s fusing technologies and toner helps lower overall energy consumption by minimizing power requirements and reducing energy use during warm-up and standby modes. With advanced technologies present in each model, the Series also meets ENERGY STAR® standards.

Minimize environmental impact

All suppliers are required to meet Canon’s stringent Green Procurement policy and environmental terms. This helps the company exceed the toughest global standards set by the EU RoHS Directive, which restricts the use of certain hazardous substances.

Reduction of CO2 emissions

Through its Life Cycle Assessment System, Canon has lowered CO2 emissions by focusing on each stage of the product life cycle, including manufacturing, energy use, and logistics. These products are designed to be the smallest and lightest in their class, with less packaging to help make transportation more efficient.

Eco-conscious design

Canon is making a difference through creative, ecological thinking. These imageRUNNER ADVANCE models employ certain components that are made with recycled plastic from retired products. And, Canon’s innovative green technologies also include bio-based plastic, a plant-derived compound that replaces certain petroleum-based plastic parts.
