Throughout the years, Canon has been working to create sustainability in the community through its various CSR projects, such as the Biodiversity Conservation project named “Canon Water Conservation and Sustainable Utilization of Water Hyacinth” which aims to encourage the local communities to turn the unneeded water hyacinths into natural fibers with an environmentally friendly process. These natural fibers can be woven into fabric, clothing, scarves and further upgraded to a value-added plastic-substitute material, which could generate income for the community. This project also helps strengthen good relationship within communities and partners as well as creates positive environmental impacts by reducing the number of water hyacinths for cleaner water, reducing plastic usage and carbon emissions as well as helps raise more awareness in environmental conservation.
