Protect Earth, Support Green
Canon is proud to be the 1st brand to launch series of green calculators with recycled materials. Instead of using plastic materials of unknown sources, we differentiate ourselves from others by recycling disposed materials from our Canon copiers and cameras. Consumers can have their trust in our green series based on the fact that every product made by Canon qualifies the green procurement process. Such high quality recycled materials are then used to produce our calculator casings.
Since 1988, Canon has been striving to attain the corporate philosophy - Kyosei. A concise definition of this word would be ‘Living and working together for the common good’, but our definition is even broader: ‘All people, regardless of race, religion or culture, harmoniously living and working together into the future.’ Regrettably, the presence of imbalances in our world in such areas as trade, income levels and the environment hinders the achievement of Kyosei.
Addressing these imbalances is an ongoing mission, and Canon is doing its part by actively pursuing Kyosei. Truly global companies must foster good relations, not only with their customers and the communities in which they operate, but also with nations and the environment. They must also bear the responsibility for the impact of their activities on society. For this reason, Canon’s ultimate goal is to contribute not only to global prosperity but also the well-being of mankind, which will lead to continuing growth and bring the world closer to achieving Kyosei.
Canon has long been examining how product lifecycles impact the environment and has been placing great efforts to reduce the environmental impact of its products. We have successfully developed the new series of recycled material calculators (materials recycling from Canon copiers and cameras), which is manufactured to the highest standards and minimal harm to the environment. It is an example to reflect our efforts to reduce energy consumption and eliminate harmful materials. We will continue to participate in the realization of a sustainable society.
We care about the environment and certainly the well-being of all those around us. We sincerely hope our action towards green can bring out the important meaning of being environmentally friendly to the users.
