• Canon makes CDP’s ‘Climate A List’ for first time

        • Canon’s initiatives to tackle climate change have been recognised by the CDP, earning the company its first inclusion on the Climate A List.

          Since 2003, the CDP has evaluated companies worldwide on their efforts to tackle climate change. The evaluations are based on information disclosed in response to questions sent to the companies regarding business risks and opportunities associated with greenhouse gas emissions and climate change. In 2016, approximately 6,000 businesses were assessed, of which 500 were Japanese. The evaluation ranks companies on a scale from A to F, with A being the highest, and Canon was declared one of the 193 companies in the world to make the A List.

          Under its Action for Green environmental vision, introduced in 2008, Canon set a goal of annually reducing lifecycle CO₂ emissions for each product by 3 per cent, and is making efforts through such initiatives as energy-saving activities at manufacturing bases, a modal shift in distribution, reduced energy consumption during product use, product remanufacturing, reusing parts and recycling consumable goods. As a result, in 2015, lifecycle CO₂ emissions per product were around 30 per cent of those in 2008, achieving an average reduction of around 5 per cent a year.

          Canon’s Action for Green environmental vision aims to realise a society that promotes both enriched lifestyles and the global environment through technological innovation and improved management efficiency. Throughout the entire product lifecycle – Produce, Use, Recycle – Canon continues to expand activities with its customers and business partners to reduce environmental burden in pursuit of this environmental vision.
