Social and Environmental Responsibility
Following half a century of operations, Canon adopted Kyosei as its corporate philosophy in 1988, clearly expressing the company’s firm commitment to working together with stakeholders around the world. Kyosei is the aspiration to create a society in which all people, regardless of race, language or culture, harmoniously live and work together for the common good into the future.
Our dedication to Kyosei guides our vision of protecting and preserving our most precious resources—the world we share, the communities we serve and the lives we touch. We do this through environmental, conservation, recycling and sustainability initiatives. We also practice Kyosei through social and educational programs on behalf of young people and those in need. This determination to live and work together for the common good permeates everything we do: from research and development, to product manufacturing, marketing, sales and distribution.
Kyosei also drives our commitment to establish good relations, with our customers and the communities in which we operate. This is our corporate philosophy, and it unites all Canon companies and employees together in contributing to the prosperity of humanity and protecting the world we share.
Our Commitment to Supplier Diversity
Canon Business Process Services is committed to providing opportunities to certified minority, women, and disabled veteran owned businesses to supply goods and services as part of our corporate procurement process. Our policy of providing opportunities to such enterprises is a reflection of our commitment to diversity in the communities where we work and live. We recognize the importance of supplier diversity and believe that the success of our organization and society depends on enabling historically underutilized businesses to share in the nation’s economic growth. Therefore, we commit to maximizing their participation through the development of mutually beneficial business relationships with these firms.

Our Core Values
Our Comprehensive Safety Governance System
Canon is committed to being an industry leader in health, safety and environmental best practices, maintaining a safe and healthy workplace, and protecting the environment. We place the safety and well-being of our clients, employees, and subcontractors first and foremost. Our proactive approach to safety includes a Corporate Safety Governance System comprised of safety policies and procedures, a site safety playbook, ongoing team training and education, and robust analytics to ensure compliance with all OSHA, federal, state, local and client reporting requirements. With Canon, you have a partner that is committed to a strong safety and compliance culture. Our values, attitudes, and safety goals on site protect everyone and minimize risk so that we can consistently deliver operational excellence safely to our clients. It’s how we do business.
Canon’s sustainability initiatives begin in the product development stage, where we strive to create cutting-edge products that exceed our customers' needs, and to use a greater amount of sustainable and/or recycled materials in our products and services. And, we utilize energy-efficient manufacturing processes—developing energy-efficient products, maintaining toner cartridge and container collection and recycling programs, and eliminating hazardous substances from our products and services wherever possible.
Canon aims to reduce environmental burdens in all stages of the product lifecycle. Canon’s global Environmental Management System (comprised of hundreds of sites certified to ISO 14001) focuses on three fundamental strategies: resource conservation, energy conservation and the elimination of hazardous substances. These cumulative efforts help our customers meet their own sustainability goals. Canon supports a wide range of environmental initiatives. Here is a sampling of these important initiatives:
Generation Green provides business partners, customers and consumers with a way to identify and learn about the various environmentally conscious products and solutions Canon offers (energy efficiency and paper-saving features, recycling options, elimination of hazardous substances and innovative product design).
Home and Small Office Recycling contributes to the goal of zero landfill waste. Canon has introduced a collection and recycling program for Genuine Canon Inkjet Printer Cartridges. Additionally, through the Consumer Products Recycling Program, Canon helps customers in the United States recycle Canon consumer products and certain small office/home office products.
We’re proud of our environmental and sustainability achievements, such as earning the LEED Gold Certification for the new Canon Americas headquarters in Melville, NY, and being selected as one of Interbrand’s 50 Best Global Green Brands. Conducting business in harmony with the environment, we are committed to a sustainable future.
