Generation Green is Canon’s environmental initiative. This program encompasses eligible Scanners, PIXMA Inkjet Printers, imageCLASS laser printers, and calculators. Generation Green is designed to provide business partners, customers and consumers a way to learn about the environmentally-friendly approach Canon is taking to design many of its current and future products and solutions; for example, possible cost savings through energy efficiency. The X Mark I Black has the following Generation Green characteristics:
Solar Power - The X Mark I Black is powered solely by solar power. It does not use any batteries, thus reducing the amount of waste generated.
