Environmental Management

At the Canon Marketing Japan Group (hereafter, the "Canon MJ Group"), we are effectively operating our environmental management system.

Environmental Management System

At the Canon MJ Group, we have built the Canon Group's common environmental management system based on ISO 14001. The system serves as a mechanism for continuous improvement of our environmental protection activities.
Under this environmental management system, we set environmental targets for each year to advance activities for reducing our environmental impact, develop an action plan for achieving the targets, and reflect them in our business activities. Moreover, to confirm the status of these activities and the issues we face, we conduct internal environmental audits, thus working to continuously improve and strengthen our environmental protection activities.

Go to the page below for companies which have obtained ISO 14001 consolidated certification.

Develop Personnel with Environmental Expertise

At the Canon Marketing Japan Group (hereafter, the "Canon MJ Group"), we provide employees undertaking environmental protection activities with training that is appropriate for their role. We thus develop human resources who can take actions voluntarily for the good of customers and society.

System for Developing Environmental Human Resources

The Canon MJ Group works to develop Environmental Persons* and Environmental Staff so that each employee can contribute to activities for reducing the environmental impact of customers and society through their daily work. We make effective use of the e-learning system to ensure the efficient development of Environmental Persons and Environmental Staff.

*Environmental Person
A person who tackles environmental problems on their own initiative, recognizes their own level of understanding of environmental information and knowledge, thinks about issues including how they themselves should tackle environmental problems in the future, and take actions voluntarily

Internal Awareness-Raising Activities

As a part of initiatives to solve environmental issues in the Group, we create environmental slogans, post them on the intranet and introduce them in internal newsletters distributed to all Group employees, in an effort to raise awareness.

Environmental Communication

At the Canon Marketing Japan Group (hereafter, the "Canon MJ Group"), we disclose environmental information to diverse stakeholders using various media and opportunities, in two-way communication with them.

Environmental Outreach Classes

Currently, environment outreach classes are suspended. We appreciate your understanding.

At Canon MJ, we provide environmental outreach classes themed on the recycling of printer consumables at elementary schools all over Japan. These classes are aimed at communicating the importance of reducing waste and using resources repeatedly to future generations.
The classes include an experiment that involves segregating waste into plastics, iron, and other types of waste by making use of properties of each material, so that children can enjoy learning about recycling. Applying the active learning method, these classes have been praised by educational institutions and local residents.

Office Tours for Introducing Environmental Activities

At Canon MJ, we provide office tours at each business site. Showing visitors around office floors, we introduce examples of energy-saving and resource-saving activities carried out at each site.
