The Toride Plant is located in the city of Toride, Ibaraki prefecture, Japan. The Tone River flows nearby and abundant greenery is found in the surrounding riverbeds and croplands. In conjunction with projects underway at Canon’s global headquaters, the Toride Plant runs conservation activities to protect birds and other forms of biodiversity.
The Fuji-Susono Research Park is located in the city of Susono, Shizuoka prefecture, Japan, lying at the foot of Mt. Fuji. In this area, many birds live and we call it as the wild birds’ paradise. This site is situated in a valley surrounded by forest visited by many passing wild birds.
The Kawasaki Office is located in the city of Kawasaki, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. Even though it is located right in the city, surrounded by residential neighborhoods, business districts and high-rise buildings, the Kawasaki Office has substantial green space that has become an important habitat for birds.
Canon Medical Systems' headquarters is located in the city of Otawara, Tochigi Prefecture. Inspired by the bountiful natural beauty of the alluvial fans of Nasunogahara, we work together with our employees and local communities to carry out biodiversity conservation activities, following our vision of “building a company that coexists with nature.”
The Océ Weerd was opened in 2005. The Maas (Meuse) River flows adjacent to the site of Canon Production Printing Netherlands B.V.. Lands along the Maas are used as a floodplain at times of high water levels and as a nature area. The Océ Weerd provides a rough nature environment, with grassland, brushwood and willow trees. And now several species of wild birds can be seen and heard there.
