This year's report highlights the company's initiatives aimed at reducing CO2 emissions throughout the product lifecycle along with examples of Canon products contributing to society in such categories as medical equipment, network cameras and mixed reality. It also presents Canon's support for local communities hardest hit by the Great East Japan Earthquake through the Tsuzuri Project, which promotes the preservation and practical use of precious cultural assets, and introduces activities being carried out by Canon Wind, a special subsidiary, to expand job opportunities for persons with disabilities. Additionally, targeting improved reliability and objectivity, the report includes a third-party verification on the Canon Group's greenhouse gas emissions.

Aiming to become a corporate group that keeps growing together with communities and society, Canon will continue pursuing CSR initiatives in accordance with the needs of each country and region.
