Environmental Initiatives

Canon has undertaken several initiatives to reduce the environmental impact of our operations and the products we produce. All of these actions are incorporated into Canon’s Environmental Management System (EMS), which is based upon the policies described in our Environmental Charter. Follow the links below to learn more about…


ISO 14001 Certification 


The ISO 14001 standard provides organizations with a framework for developing an effective Environmental Management System (EMS). Canon's EMS is based on the Canon Americas Environmental Charter. We continue to check and improve our EMS by conducting internal and external audits.


'Generation Green' Consumer and Commercial Products


Generation Green is designed to provide business partners, customers, and consumers a way to identify and learn about the various environmentally conscious products and solutions Canon offer. These include energy efficiency and paper saving features, and innovative product design.

The program encompasses eligible Canon scanners, PIXMA inkjet printers, imageCLASS laser printers, copiers, calculators, imageFORMULA DR and CR scanners, imagePROGRAF Large Format Printers, imageRUNNERs, color imageRUNNERs, imageRUNNER LBP, and imageRUNNER ADVANCE. We will continue to create products that are considerate to people and the global environment.
