Product Energy Use

Product energy use

The demand for products that consume less energy, and ultimately result in lower emissions, is ever increasing. Our customers wish to lower their impact on the environment while also reducing operating costs. Lexmark invests in developing energy efficient products to not only fulfill our customer’s expectations, but also to extend the impact of our environmental efforts far beyond what we do within our walls.

External standards and specifications help shape Lexmark designs. Many Lexmark products meet ENERGY STAR® requirements and ecodesign power consumption requirements of electronic equipment according to European Union requirements (EC 801/2013). Lexmark products save energy by lowering power consumption after a period of inactivity with many consuming less than two watts of power in sleep mode. To further save energy, products either enable Hibernate mode or auto-off when not in use for an extended period. In 2022, 95% of Lexmark-branded products sold held the latest version of ENERGY STAR certification. For more information on European Union EC 801/2013, see Product Certifications.

Lexmark was recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's ENERGY STAR program as a 2023 Partner of the Year.
