Conservation of the Environment - Canon HongKong

Canon has been taking solid actions to conserve the environment for a greener and better planet. With all parties living harmoniously, the "Kyosei" Corporate Philosophy is greatly realized.

Corporate Engagement in Environmental Initiatives

We cooperated with The Green Earth and WWF-Hong Kong to organize volunteer services to help resolve ecosystem imbalances. These services include tree planting, beach cleaning, hiking trail cleanup, and the removal of invasive species of mikania or excessive grass. The goal of these initiatives is to raise awareness of environmental challenges that have gained prominence in recent years.

During the cleanup, volunteers actively participate in activities that highlight the impact of various environmental challenges, such as the suburban camping boom, sea-floating garbage, foam plastic, and plastic bottles, all of which have caused damage to the coastal environment and may disrupt the ocean food chain. Additionally, overgrown vegetation also threatens wetland habitats.

Action to Restore Our Shoreline

Furthermore, our employees actively engage in environmental protection activities such as "Walk for the Green Earth” or "Green Power Hike". These events provide an opportunity for our employees to not only appreciate the scenery of our beautiful nature but also enhance their environmental awareness.

Canon Hong Kong corporate teams participated in the night walk organized by The Green Earth, to spread the message of environmental conservation.

The walkathon has received overwhelming support from over 800 participants and successfully raised approximately HK$600,000 in total, for supporting The Green Earth’s campaigns and education programs.

We supported the “Green WALK Hong Kong” organized by the World Green Organisation (WGO). The activity aims to encourage everyone to combat climate change by walking just a little more to replace short-distance vehicles to reduce carbon emissions while maintaining a healthier physical and mental lifestyle.

Canon HK has been encouraging staff to endeavor their effort to save the Earth and contribute to environmental conversation actions.

Support Reuse and Recycle

Canon Hong Kong has supported the Red Packet Recycling Program of Greeners Action for the 12th year in a row. In addition, we contributed to food donation programs organized by the People's Food Bank of St. James' Settlement and the People Service Centre by placing additional recycle boxes to collect food packs for singleton elderly, low-income families and ripped-room kids.

Collected food will be served as emergency assistance services for those low-income people. 

Promote Green Product Lifecycle

To share green technologies and relevant innovative solutions, Canon HK, as the only manufacturer of imaging products, had joined the "Eco Expo Asia" from 2010 – 2012 together with hundreds of leading exhibitors for green products and technologies. Through the illustration of green product lifecycle (produce, use and recycle) and showcasing advanced office solutions, Canon HK demonstrated endeavors In line with the main theme of "Green Tech for a Low-carbon Economy" in 2012.
