Canon has since 1995 been creating environmental management systems (EMSs) and acquiring ISO 14001 certification at individual operational sites around the world. However, because of a lack of standardization in rules and in the overall orientation of EMSs, we needed a system we could gather environmental information from each operational site of the group, and make and communicate appropriate decisions. For this reason, we launched an attainment of consolidated certification in 2005. And as of 2019, we achieved the consolidated certification at our operational sites, manufacturing and marketing subsidiaries in 40 countries and regions around the world.
The acquisition rate of ISO 14001 consolidated certification for Canon and domestic / overseas manufacturing consolidated subsidiaries (100 or more employees): 99.9% or higher (regarding CO2 emission base)
