Climate Change
Basic Approach

Canon is working toward the reduction of CO2 emissions throughout the product lifecycle.

Canon seeks to consistently meet its environmental targets and, beyond that, is working toward net-zero CO2 emissions from its business activities by 2050. To that end, we quantify emissions during the whole product lifecycle—from the upstream supply of raw materials and parts through operational site activities and logistics to customer use—and use technology to reduce emissions at each stage.

For 2050

We aim to achieve net-zero CO2 emissions for entire product lifecycle (Scope 1-3) by 2050.

2030 Targets

  • Reduce Scope 1 & 2 emissions by 42% compared to 2022, reduce Scope 3 (category 1 and 11) emissions by 25% compared to 2022.
  • Work toward a 3% average annual improvement in the index of lifecycle CO2 emissions (per product unit), realizing a cumulative improvement of 50% compared to 2008 by continually achieving this target.
