Canon carried on "Prosthetic Leg for a New Life" project for the 2nd consecutive year
by donating aluminum can ring pulls and can lids for recycling into prosthetic limbs for the disabled.
Canon Marketing (Thailand) Co., Ltd. led by Mr. Phongthep Prasertvoranun, Director of Corporate Communication & CSR Department, delivered 20.5 kgs of aluminum ring pulls and can lids, which were donated by Canon employees as well as its partners throughout 2023 as part of its "Prosthetic Leg for a New Life" project Year 2 , to the Department of Pollution Control, Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment which has collaborated with the Prostheses Foundation of H.R.H. the Princess Mother to recycle and make prosthetic limbs more affordable for the disabled.
At Canon, we value sustainable environmental conservation as well as the awareness of waste sorting among employees and family members through various CSR activities. This project is also one of our efforts to sort the hard-to-decompose materials and upcycle to transform them to new materials. In addition to reducing waste, recycle also helps reduce resource consumption and reduce CO2 from transportation and production process. 20.5 kilograms of the aluminum ring pulls and can lids donated help reduce CO2 emission by 197.10 kgCO2eq.
Canon hopes that this environmental activity will help bring Thais closer to the achievement of reducing greenhouse gas emissions with the effort to "limit" and "eliminate" greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere and move towards the Net Zero society in the near future.
