Green Procurement

Guided by our corporate philosophy of "Kyosei", Canon has been conducting global environmental conservation activities. One of these activities is green procurement, in which procurement and purchasing of environment-friendly materials, parts, and products are prioritized when necessary resources are produced and purchased.
