Product Certifications


Multi-attribute environmental standards

Lexmark products are designed to meet or exceed the strict criteria of some of the world’s most prominent standards and certifications. These certifications may require testing, analysis, audit, third-party review, standard declaration or disclosure of business or product information.

ISO 14024Type I environmental labeling
Lexmark has a long history of designing print systems to meet the Blue Angel standard for environmental performance. The Blue Angel ecolabel, which originated in Germany in 1978, is one of the most prestigious environmental certifications worldwide. The Blue Angel criteria are regularly reviewed and revised—the most recent revision being DE-UZ 219, effective since January 1, 2022. All Lexmark print systems announced after October 2012 have been Blue Angel certified.

ISO 14021Type II self-declared environmental claims
The Eco Declaration (ECMA-370)

Formerly known as IT Eco Declarations, ECMA-370 declarations provide objective and comparable environmental information. Lexmark signed the original "Industry Voluntary Agreement to Improve the Environmental Performance of Imaging Equipment Placed on the European Market" in June 2011, and the updated agreement in April 2015. Manufacturers are required to make product environmental performance data publicly available, such as through The Eco Declaration (ECMA-370). To view Lexmark’s declarations, click here.



Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT)

Lexmark is committed to helping our customers meet their sustainability, energy and resource-efficiency goals by providing products that are environmentally preferable. The EPEAT program recognizes products that meet this qualification of adherence to IEEE 1680.2 standard. This standard is the basis for assessing imaging equipment for environmental stewardship. We have registered over 200 of our products with Gold and Silver ratings—the highest ratings available. As part of the EPEAT verification process, audits are conducted by third-party laboratories and an outside certification body to ensure full compliance with the IEEE 1680.2 standard. Lexmark is committed to continuing public disclosure and annual reporting as required by EPEAT and has provided an EPEAT Public Declarations Table for reference. A new revision of EPEAT is under consideration for additional product and corporate criteria.

Energy standards

Lexmark is committed to designing energy-efficient products and uses ENERGY STAR® requirements for imaging equipment as a guideline when developing products. Launched in 1992, ENERGY STAR is the globally recognized program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy that awards certification to the most energy-efficient models in a product category. The majority of Lexmark products maintain ENERGY STAR qualification year after year. In 2022, 95% of Lexmark-branded products sold held the latest version of the certification. This includes the Lexmark branded aquisition products that meet ENERGY STAR qualifications. For more information on ENERGY STAR and a listing of certified Lexmark products, click here.

EC 801
EC 801/2013 is the implementing measure for ErP Lot 26 (Network Standby). As part of this regulation, manufacturers are required to post information about the Network Standby (“sleep”) modes of products, including the available network connections, the power consumption in sleep mode for each connection and the default timeout to sleep mode.
