To protect the environment

Sustainable monitors from EIZO


FlexScan monitors from EIZO are equipped with sophisticated energy-saving features, are produced in accordance with international environmental regulations and conserve resources thanks to their long service life.

Environmentally and climate friendly production

Environmentally friendly use of materials

EIZO FlexScan monitors include models made from more than 80% recycled plastic. This reduces the amount of plastic waste entering the environment, conserves resources, and promotes the reuse of materials.

Reducing the use of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in material production, such as those found in certain paints and coatings, is also of global interest.

Through years of research, EIZO has succeeded in achieving smooth, homogeneous color and texture in its monitor housings without the use of paint.


Sustainable packaging

For monitor packaging, EIZO says goodbye to plastic and polystyrene to reduce environmental impact. Instead, the monitor is securely packaged with molded pulp made from recycled cardboard and newsprint. The included cables are wrapped in paper instead of plastic bags.


Collective packaging on demand

Depending on the quantity and delivery time, EIZO offers an alternative packaging option with four monitors and four separate stands in one shipping unit each.

This reduces packaging waste, increases shipping efficiency and shortens unpacking and installation time.


Space-saving collective packaging: 1) monitors, 2) stands

Recycling old equipment

As a manufacturer, we are committed to responsibly monitoring the life cycle of our products from start to finish, even after use. In Japan, parts of Europe, and the U.S., we take back used monitors for recycling to fulfill our responsibility beyond the useful life of our products.

Longevity and repairability

EIZO monitors are designed to last a long time - usually well beyond the five-year warranty for office monitors. Replacement parts are available for the majority of all models for up to five years after the end of production.

The entire usage cycle takes into account the impact on the environment, as longevity and repairability conserve resources and the climate.

Certified environmental management systems

We manufacture at our own facility, which has an ISO 14001 certified environmental management system. This includes measures to reduce waste, wastewater and emissions, resource and energy consumption, through to promoting environmentally conscious behavior among employees. We publicly account for these measures on an annual basis.


Certified sustainability

Not only do we comply with international environmental laws and regulations, but we also meet the latest environmental standards and certifications.


Compliance with Laws

EIZO complies with international laws and regulations on environmental protection and the effective use of energy. In countries outside Europe, we also understand these regulations as an incentive to take similar measures.

Examples of European regulations that EIZO complies with:

  • RoHS Directive (Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment)
  • WEEE Directive (Collection and Recycling of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment)
  • REACH Regulation (handling of chemical substances)
  • ErP Directive (ecodesign for energy-related products)
  • WF Directive (database registration for the management of substances for waste disposal)


Meeting the latest sustainability standards

FlexScan monitors also meet the latest environmental standards. In particular, the Swedish TCO certificate, which refers to socially responsible manufacturing and environmental awareness.

In addition, most FlexScan monitors have a Gold or Silver EPEAT registration for compliance with stringent sustainability standards at the highest level, which is even complemented by a Climate + award on science-based climate protection standards.

Examples of environmental standards that EIZO monitors meet:

  • TCO Certified Generation 9 (global environmental standard for IT products)
  • ENERGY STAR (international energy efficiency standard from the USA)
  • EPEAT (international environmental standard for PCs/monitors, established in the USA)
  • PC Green Label (Japanese environmental standard for PCs/monitors)

Our contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals

As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities, EIZO is contributing to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)


Save power with EIZO FlexScan monitors


Save up to 30% energy with EcoView Optimizer

Saving power without loss of quality: The EcoView Optimizer automatically reduces the backlight in dark images. This reduces power consumption by up to 30%. At the same time, the signal is amplified and the color tone values are adjusted. The result: You experience the usual picture quality with lower consumption.

Automatic brightness adjustment with Auto EcoView

Because the lighting conditions around a monitor change over the course of a day, one of the features we developed was the unique Auto EcoView function. With it, the monitor's screen brightness adjusts perfectly to the lighting conditions.
Thanks to the automatic brightness adjustment, you save up to 50% power compared to a monitor permanently operated at full brightness.


Zero wattage consumption due to power switch

The monitors have an integrated, mechanical power switch. This is extremely practical and power-saving: If you turn the monitor off via the power switch, the device does not consume any power at all. In stand-by mode, the consumption is no more than 0.5 watts.
