While developing innovative technologies, Canon is also working to lessen the impact on the environment in all stages of the life cycle of its products. Our policies for research as well as manufacturing are aimed at reducing waste and preserving the environment. Here are some examples of recent innovations:
- We recover and recycle chemical emissions during the production process.
- Power consumption has been reduced in printers and copiers in stand-by mode.
- A new method for electrical charging in copiers and laser printers means they emit virtually no ozone.
