* EPA ANNOUNCES FIRST CHARTER MEMBER IN NATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE
TRACK

FIRST CHARTER MEMBER IN NATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE TRACK ANNOUNCED
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently named Epson Portland
Inc., of Hillsboro, Oregon, as the first company to meet the high standards
for a charter member of the Agency's new National Environmental Performance
Track, a program designed to motivate and reward environmental performance
which exceeds traditional pollution control requirements. EPA received
applications for charter membership from over 100 facilities.

The companies accepted into the program are leading by example and modeling
the way to environmental excellence, using a systematic approach to managing
environmental responsibilities, taking extra steps to reduce and prevent
pollution, and being good corporate neighbors. At the same time, such
companies are saving money and improving productivity.
As a charter member, Epson is eligible to receive special recognition in EPA
publications and websites and regulatory benefits which will include
streamlined reporting arrangements and more flexible procedures.
Epson Portland Inc. is the sole U.S. manufacturing affiliate of Japan's
Seiko-Epson Corp. 

Epson produces computer printer ink cartridges, circuit boards and computer
related products. By the end of 1999, the company voluntarily had reduced
landfill wastes by 60 percent, lowered air emissions by 75 percent and
increased its recycling program. Further pollution prevention is planned and
there is a commitment to use a "green" purchasing approach for its raw
products.
