Eliminating Hazardous Substances and Preventing Pollution
Canon thoroughly manages chemical substances in products and those used in manufacturing processes to prevent environmental pollution and adverse effects on people’s health.
Canon’s Initiatives and Their Relation to SDG Targets
* Target 12.4: Achieve the environmentally sound management of chemicals and all waste throughout the product lifecycle. Significantly reduce their release into the air, water, and soil.
* Target 6.3: Improve water quality by reducing pollution, eliminating dumping and minimizing release of hazardous chemicals and materials, and increasing recycling and safe reuse.
Canon’s Approach to Managing Chemical Substances
Canon strictly manages chemical substances in products as well as those used in manufacturing processes. Our basic approach to management involves confirming products do not contain chemical substances that exceed the limited values and production sites do not emit chemical substances that exceed the limited values.
