About Canon Finetech Inc.

Environmental Activities

Promoting Environmental Conservation as a Corporate Citizen
Environmentally conscious Products

Corporations, both domestically and abroad, are being called upon to fulfill an ever expanding range of responsibilities. These include compliance with all relevant environmental assurance laws, as well as other demands from the consumers.
As a member of the Canon Group, Canon Finetech adheres to the group philosophy of Kyosei (living and working together for the common good) and so actively promotes the production of environmentally conscious products. These activities can be seen in all steps from product planning and development
to procurement, production, shipping and disposal.
For the product planning and development stages we have established special Environmental standards for each product, taking into consideration the needs of our customers and society. When selecting parts and materials we make sure that there are no harmful materials involved, and we confirm that no harmful materials will be used or discharged during the product assembly process. Assessments are also made to confirm that products can be easily disassembled and separated during the disposal process. Product assessments are conducted for new products in each process up until the start of production to ensure that the product conforms to these environmental standards.

Environmental conservation is
the common challenge of the 21st Century

In the same manner careful consideration of environmental protection is given during the production stages as well.
Canon Finetech is promoting the dismantling and recycling of disposed products, while at the same time encouraging global environmental protection activities for every aspect of production. During the procurement stage every effort is made to obtain parts and materials from suppliers that also take steps to protect the environment. We have taken thorough steps to eliminate the use and discharge of harmful substances during production and we are also working to find alternatives to the use of lead in electronic materials. Our product shipping pallets are now made from easily recyclable cardboard.
By thoroughly adopting this integrated approach, Canon Finetech has been able to obtain ISO14001 certification for environmental management systems. We plan to continuously make efforts to further improve our environmental performance.
