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.
At Canon, we believe every manufacturer has a responsibility to ensure that its operations and practices are environmentally sound. We apply this standard of environmental respect to all aspects of our operations. At every step, we make energy and resource conservation and the elimination of hazardous substances our most important goals.
