- TOKYO, Japan, November 16, 2018 -

Seiko Epson Corporation (TSE: 6724, "Epson") has published the "Epson Integrated Report 2018," which is now available on the company's corporate website.

Investors, shareholders and other stakeholders are increasingly evaluating companies on their environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance, with integrated reports now a popular means for companies to communicate about this information. Such stakeholders will use the information to assess the company's sustainability as an enterprise, and will look at quantitative financial information and information about operations and strategies to analyze future growth prospects.

Epson will use the Integrated Report as a tool for communicating with stakeholders to foster greater understanding of the company's activities and promote constructive dialog.
