To promote environmental conservation activities, Canon thinks it essential that the following four frameworks function effectively, and satisfying these requirements is the condition to start business with us.
A company must construct and operate a system to reduce environmental impact caused by its business activities.
As the result of constructing and operating an environmental management system, the following must be achieved: compliance with laws and regulations, no use of the prohibited substances, reduction in the use of substances targeted for reduced levels of use, and implementation of preventive measures against pollution of soil and groundwater.
A system must be constructed and operated to keep track of and manage chemical substances contained in parts and materials delivered to Canon.
No "prohibited substances" are contained in parts and materials delivered to Canon, and no "use-restricted substances" are contained after a specified period.
Canon purchases preferentially environment-friendly products and service.
The Canon asks suppliers to comply with the requirements prescribed in the Green Procurement Standards. Please confirm the following in regard to achieving compliance with the requirements. If any points are unclear, please contact the procurement and purchasing division of the Canon-group company with which you have dealings.
