Canon Inc., the parent company of Canon U.S.A., a provider of digital imaging solutions, announces it has earned recognition for its sustainability efforts with a gold rating from French-based environmental organization EcoVadis.

This marks the seventh time Canon has been recognized with the award.

More than 90,000 companies from 200 industries across 160 countries were part of the evaluation, with EcoVadis assessing themes related to the environment, labor and human rights, ethics, and sustainability procurement. In being awarded a gold rating, Canon placed among the top 5% of companies globally.

Canon recently published its sustainability report for 2022, addressing environmental and social issues to realize a sustainable society by creating new value through business, research, and development activities.

According to Canon, the company aims to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 by continuing the process of developing smaller and lighter products, streamlining logistics operations by engaging in energy-saving initiatives at production sites, developing products that are energy efficient, and recycling products at the end of their cycles.

“In the spirit of Canon’s corporate philosophy of Kyosei — all people, regardless of race, religion, or culture, harmoniously living and working together into the future — Canon is committed to an approach to business that is socially responsible and economically logical for its sustainability efforts,” states Canon.
