Guided by its kyosei philosophy that focuses on "living and working together for the common good", Canon is dedicated to producing innovative products and technologies to improve efficiency at home and in the office. We are committed to steering our research and manufacturing processes towards sustainability, providing a safe and healthy workplace, and delivering high quality products to our customers.
The literal meaning of kyosei is "living and working together for the common good," but Canon's interpretation encompasses "All people, regardless of race, religion or culture, harmoniously living and working together into the future." In reality, our world has many imbalances in such areas as trade, income levels and the environment. Addressing these imbalances is an ongoing mission, and Canon is doing its part by actively pursuing kyosei. As a truly global company we foster good relationships not only with our customers, but also with communities in which we operate and the natural environment.
Advances in technology are having an increasing impact on society, and the pace of development continues to accelerate. To meet the challenge of these rapidly changing times, Canon stays on the cutting edge by actively pursuing Research & Development (R&D) around the world.
While developing innovative technologies, Canon is also working to lessen the impact on the environment in all stages of the life cycle of its products. Our policies for research as well as manufacturing are aimed at reducing waste and preserving the environment. Here are some examples of recent innovations:
In 1990 Canon was the first in the world to initiate an extensive cartridge recycling programme, with the used cartridges being used as parts or materials for new cartridges. Please join us in this effort! You can drop off your used cartridges at one of our designated Singapore pick-up points, or arrange for pick up if you have used cartridges in large quantities.
Canon believes in being socially responsible and we are actively involved in various projects. These projects include reaching out to the less fortunate and being an active patron of sports, as well as a leading supporter of environmental conservation efforts.
We are looking for people with vision and are confident that in our diverse organisation there are opportunities for everyone to shine if they are ready to embrace a challenge. In return, Canon offers its employees both an open environment and an informal culture, encouraging fresh ideas and helping employees realise their true potential.
Canon started out in 1937 with the vision to make the best camera for the world. More than seven decades later, it is a global leader not only in photography but also with a wide portfolio of products for consumers and businesses. Canon Singapore Pte. Ltd. was established in 1979 and oversees the South & Southeast Asia region.
The management team of Canon Marketing (Thailand) Co., Ltd. are committed to ensuring the sustainable growth and development of the company through the pro-active identification and systemic management of risks that may have a significant impact on the company’s business and operations.
At Canon, we stress the importance of quality, environment, occupational health and safety, and information security in accordance with the “Kyosei” philosophy, meaning harmoniously living and working together for common benefits with an emphasis on QEHS systems.
