Canon's Corporate Philosophy of Kyosei

Based on the idea of Coexistence, one of the Canon Group's philosophies, we strive to contribute to the prosperity of the world and the happiness of humanity. We also continue to make efforts to meet expectations of society by building good relationships with not only customers and communities but also countries and regions as well as the Earth and nature.

Environment Conservation Efforts

At our factories that produce materials, we give full consideration to possible impacts on the environment to protect the Earth. Every one of our employees has been actively undertaking measures to preserve the environment, including daily energy saving, water saving and recycling. They also try as much as possible to use packing/packaging materials made of biodegradable ingredients that join with the earth after time, not plastics that are harmful to the environment.

Our efforts to reduce damage to the environment include elimination of the disposal of waste into landfill, recycling or value recovery of industrial waste, and cyclic use where the waste is reprocessed to obtain raw materials or packaging materials.
