A responsible way to work

Canon knows that the world and the workplace need a greener workflow. The imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5200 Series, registered in EPEAT®, delivers just that. Now organizations can seamlessly share and distribute digital documents and preview files to make changes prior to printing, helping to reduce the use of paper and toner. Print drivers are automatically set for duplex, encouraging two-sided printing to reduce waste. And with Secure Print, documents are sent to a device but aren’t printed until a password is entered, contributing to a reduction in paper waste.

A clear strategy

Greater energy efficiency

From the inside out, the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5200 Series is designed for high-energy efficiency and stellar performance. The combination of our fusing technologies and pQ toner helps lower overall energy consumption by minimizing power requirements and reducing energy use during warm-up and standby. With advanced technologies present in each model, the Series meets ENERGY STAR® standards.

Reducing pollution

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

Reduction of CO2 emissions

Through its Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) 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 make transportation more efficient.

Eco-conscious design

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