Epson Europe appoints Boris Manev as new Corporate Sustainability Director

Manev looks to accelerate Epson’s corporate sustainability transformation and further strengthen the sustainability value proposition of Epson’s technology.

Epson Europe has appointed Boris Manev as its new Corporate Sustainability Director. His appointment comes as the organisation looks to accelerate its sustainability and decarbonisation programme aimed at achieving carbon negative and becoming underground resource free in line with its corporate mid-term strategy and 2050 environmental vision and commitments.

Boris Manev joined Epson in 2011 as an environmental specialist and in 2018 was appointed Head of Sustainability and Government Affairs for Epson EMEAR.  Previous to joining Epson, he worked with a Norwegian-based environmental NGO promoting sustainable technologies in the EU and co-founded an environmental youth movement and NGO in his home country of Macedonia that aimed to increase young people’s awareness of sustainability.

Commenting on the appointment, Manev says: “Epson has a long history in manufacturing energy efficient, compact and precise products and is now recognised as a leader in sustainable technology. I look forward to further accelerating our transformation towards sustainability in all areas of our operations. This includes making our 2050 environmental vision towards decarbonisation a reality and communicating the sustainability value proposition of our products and services.

“We have a wonderful, dedicated, passionate and highly qualified sustainability team at Epson and I look forward to harnessing our combined skills as we work together to deliver more sustainable technology that improves the quality of lives in the communities and societies we serve across Europe. I am especially keen to demonstrate how profit and sustainability can be mutually inclusive and short term economics can be aligned to support longer term sustainability goals through integration of sustainability in corporate business models and programmes.”

Boris holds a BA in International Economics and International Communications from the American University of Paris and a MSC in Environment and Resource Management from the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam. Outside of work his hobbies include traditional karate, crossfit, mountaineering and skiing.
