Contributing to Achievement of SDGs via Materiality Issues
Canon is contributing to the achievement of the SDGs
through various business activities. The chart below plots
each SDG according to stakeholder expectations as
gauged via our survey, versus the degree of relevance for
Canon’s activities based on the three materiality themes. While gauging any shifts in societal expectations
as accurately as possible, Canon contributes to the
achievement of SDGs through the effective utilization of
our proprietary technology and solutions.
Goal 17 (Revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development) is
omitted from the above matrix because it relates to all business activities.
