Working together for a better future

Guided by its kyosei philosophy that focuses on "living and working together for the common good", Canon is dedicated to producing innovative products and technologies to improve efficiency at home and in the office. We are committed to steering our research and manufacturing processes towards sustainability, providing a safe and healthy workplace, and delivering high quality products to our customers.

Dedicated to innovation

With a goal to bring the best innovations to people around the world, Canon has built up more than 200 companies worldwide, employing more than 160,000 people in research and development, production, sales and marketing activities. Canon commits 10 percent of its total revenue each year to R&D and has acquired 19,902 U.S. patents since 1985. For the last ten years it has been one of the top 4 companies with the most number of patents.

Caring for the environment

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.

Joining forces: cartridge recycling

In 1990 Canon was the first in the world to initiate an extensive cartridge recycling programme, with the used cartridges being used as parts or materials for new cartridges. Please join us in this effort! You can drop off your used cartridges at one of our designated Singapore pick-up points, or arrange for pick up if you have used cartridges in large quantities.

Kyosei

The literal meaning of kyosei is "living and working together for the common good," but Canon's interpretation encompasses "All people, regardless of race, religion or culture, harmoniously living and working together into the future." In reality, our world has many imbalances in such areas as trade, income levels and the environment. Addressing these imbalances is an ongoing mission, and Canon is doing its part by actively pursuing kyosei. As a truly global company we foster good relationships not only with our customers, but also with communities in which we operate and the natural environment.
