OKI Completes Cancellation of the Emission Credits for FY
2011 under the Carbon Zero Emissions Facilities Initiative

TOKYO, March 26, 2012 — OKI Data Corporation, an OKI Group
company specializing in the printer business, today
announced that it has cancelled the emission credits and
finished offsetting its FY2011 CO2 emissions under the
Carbon Zero Emissions Facilities global carbon-offsetting
initiative, which began on October 1, 2009.

During the period from October 2009 through March 2013, in
addition to efforts to cut emissions, OKI Data is seeking
to make progress with the Carbon Zero Emissions Facilities
initiative. The initiative is intended to achieve zero CO2
emissions at major OKI Data manufacturing facilities. These
activities are being carried out at the following three
facilities: the Fukushima Plant, OKI Data Manufacturing
(Thailand) and the printer section of OKI Electric Industry
(Shenzhen) in China.

“We are delighted to have completed cancellation for a
total of 5,477 tons of the emission credits under our
Carbon Zero Emissions Facilities initiatives,” says
Takao Hiramoto, President of OKI Data. “OKI Data
printers manufactured at these facilities have the
‘Manufactured at a Carbon Zero Facility’ sticker on them as
a way to help businesses better understand the importance
of managing their carbon. We believe businesses must do
their part in conserving the environment for a better
tomorrow. Moving forward, we will continue pursuing our
carbon offsetting activities.”

Through the activities outlined below, OKI Data has offset
all 5,477 tons in CO2 emitted from the three manufacturing
facilities during the second half of FY2011 (October 1,
2011 – March 31, 2012). All emission credits are cancelled
through K.K. Satisfactory International in the Markit
Environmental Registry.(*1)These records are
available for inspection by third parties.
