Canon’s corporate philosophy is kyosei, which means ‘to live and work together for the common good’. This is what Canon does every day with its corporate activities. We understand that our business is supported by the development of society as a whole. This is why, as a Good Corporate Citizen, Canon aims to contribute to the realization of a better society by engaging in sound and fair business activities. In addition, we realize that we have an increasingly important role to play in addressing complex social issues that include climate change, frequent natural disasters, poverty and inequality as expressed in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations.
