Reducing Environmental Impact throughout the Entire Product Lifecycle
The Canon Group Environmental Charter exhorts us to maximize resource efficiency, which means gaining greater value from fewer resources. Based on this concept, Canon’s “Action for Green” environmental vision aims to deliver highly functional products while at the same time minimizing environmental impact in order to propel environmentally conscious management. We know that to achieve this goal requires reducing environmental impact at every stage of the product lifecycle, from materials procurement, production and distribution through use and the product recycling leading to re-use. We have therefore established action plans covering every stage of the product lifecycle for detailed control of the progress of our efforts.
We introduce some of the Canon’s environmental activities throughout the entire product lifecycle - Produce, Use, and Recycle – on the page. Please click each stage of lifecycle below.
