Canon has sustained its efforts to bring about eco-friendly changes in the community we live by means of a tree plantation drive at Aravalli Bio-Diversity Park. 150 saplings were planted in the park by the Canon team headed by Kazutada Kobayashi, President and CEO. He said, “As a globally recognised brand, Canon India takes pride in leading by example. Our philosophy drives all our initiatives, be it professional or social, to give back to the communities we work in. It is not just our initiatives, even the products that we design and manufacture manifests our commitment towards sustainability.

Canon India has taken up various initiatives, which reflects its corporate philosophy— ‘Kyosei’—living and working together for the common good. The company has arranged varied campaigns that bring out its commitment towards conserving nature and reducing the carbon footprint. On World Environment Day, Canon India launched the ‘Yes, I pledge!’ campaign. The employees pledged and shared their commitment towards bettering the environment. Van Mahotsav ( Festival of Trees) was celebrated along with a #PhotoChallenge campaign. Viewers had to capture the flora and fauna around them and share an image on Canon India’s Facebook page.
The company also launched the ‘Go Green Campaign’ on World Nature Conservation Day. Canon employees planted saplings in their adopted villages located in Haryana and Bangalore to support the company’s objective of a clean and green planet.
