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 14024 - Type 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, originating in Germany, was established in 1978 and is one the most prestigious environmental certifications worldwide. The Blue Angel criteria are regularly reviewed and revised—the most recent revision being RAL-UZ 205, January 2017. The majority of Lexmark print systems announced after October 2012 received RAL-UZ 171 certification and are expected to meet the RAL-UZ 205 criteria and receive certification.

ISO 14021 – Type 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. In June 2011, Lexmark signed the Industry Voluntary Agreement to Improve the Environmental Performance of Imaging Equipment Placed on the European Market, which requires manufacturers to make certain environmental improvements. Manufacturers are also required to make product environmental performance data publicly available, such as through The Eco Declaration (ECMA-370). To view Lexmark’s declarations, click here.
IT Eco Declarations for our laser print supplies are available upon request.
Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool
Lexmark is committed to providing our customers products that are environmentally preferable. The Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT®) is one resource used to recognize products that meet this qualification. EPEAT uses the IEEE 1680 standard as the basis for requirements of the program. Lexmark supports our customers in their goals of environmental stewardship, energy efficiency and resource efficiency by registering products through EPEAT. In 2015, we listed our first EPEAT-registered Gold products—the MX710 Series MFPs and MX810 Series MFPs. In 2016, Lexmark launched the CS720, CX720, CS820, CX820, CX825 and CX860 Series printers and MFPs as EPEAT-registered Gold products. The remaining Lexmark EPEAT-registered products are Silver. For a list of these products, click here.
Lexmark is committed to continuing public disclosures and annual reporting as required by EPEAT, including toxics release reporting from selected suppliers.
Lexmark is committed to designing energy efficient products. A high percentage of Lexmark products maintain ENERGY STAR qualification year after year. 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 ENERGY STAR specification evolves requirements in order to drive continued energy improvements, and Lexmark seeks recertification to the latest available ENERGY STAR specification. In 2016, 90 percent of Lexmark products held the latest version of certification—ENERGY STAR V2.0. Lexmark is actively participating in ENERGY STAR Imaging Equipment Specification V3.0 development.

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, power consumption in sleep mode for each connection and the default timeout to sleep mode.
