Canon Hong Kong brings our imaging expertise to the community by organizing “Imaging for Fun” workshop. Children can create interesting artworks through photo taking and printing. All digital cameras and printing equipment will be provided and no photography experience is needed. Charities are welcome to enroll.
Environmental protection and waste reduction are crucial to the success of sustainability. As an environmentally conscious organization, Canon Hong Kong envisions a green and sustainable future, advocating a greener way to operate our business. Since 2009, Canon Hong Kong has launched the “Ink Cartridge Recycling Program” and invited the famous cartoon character “McDull” as the program’s ambassador. Currently, Canon Hong Kong has placed over 250 recycling boxes for collecting empty ink cartridges.
Canon believes the young generation definitively plays a vital role in sustainable development. In 2011, Canon Hong Kong extended the Ink Cartridge Recycling Program to the education sector and organized the “Canon x McDull Inter-school Ink Cartridge Recycling Competition” to encourage active participation of primary and secondary schools. Since its launch, it has received overwhelming support from the education sector and over 200 local schools participating in this program. To enhance awareness among students, we would like to invite more local schools to join the 12th Canon x McDull Inter-school Ink Cartridge Recycling Competition, to compete for fabulous prizes.
Starting from the academic year 2013/14, the Mai Po Secondary School “Wetland Encounter” programme has added value for a brand-new nature photography element. Guided by Education Officer of World Wide Fund For Nature Hong Kong, students could use digital cameras to take photos of different wetland scenes and wetland wildlife. Sharing and discussing these photos helps students understand how valuable wetlands are to both humans and the natural world. Best of all, the students’ masterpieces are printed out as souvenirs, allowing them to have a keepsake of their Mai Po memories. Supporting conversation in this way, by providing equipment and opportunities, Canon HKhas set an excellent example for society and the business world to follow.
