Green Procurement

Guided by its corporate philosophy of "Kyosei", Canon continues to be active in conducting global environmental conservation activities.  One of these activities is Green Procurement, in which the procurement and purchasing of environment-friendly materials, parts, and products is prioritized when necessary resources are produced and purchased.

Canon recognizes Green Procurement as one of the most important factors for our environment.  Canon began issuing "Global Canon Green Procurement Standards" and the "Global Canon Green Procurement Guide" as early as 1997, and has since promoted various environmental strategies in all areas of corporate activity together with suppliers.
