Canon began publishing global environmental reports in 1994. In 2003, we broadened our coverage to include economic and social activities, publishing the revised content in a sustainability report.
The Canon Global Sustainability Report is published annually to ensure accountability to Canon stakeholders by informing them of how its global business activities are helping to bring about a sustainable society. The report is also intended to promote two-way communication with stakeholders for the sake of improving these activities.
