Canon, a global provider of imaging technologies and services has been awarded the EcoVadis gold rating, for a fourth consecutive year, which positions the company within the top 5% for sustainability performance.

To decide company ratings, the EcoVadis CSR analysis system assesses 21 criteria across four themes of environment, fair labour practices, ethics/fair business practices and supply chain. Canon submitted data relating to CSR practices across its businesses to support these themes.

Anurag Agrawal, Managing Director, Canon Middle East, said: “The EcoVadis award is a significant achievement for us, and we are proud of this successive recognition. Sustainability is at the heart of what we do and by delivering environmental benefits through our people and products, we are powerfully demonstrating commitment to our philosophy of Kyosei: living and working together for the common good. In the region, we continue to spread our philosophy and credentials to our partners and customers to promote the immense value of sustainability in today’s business environment.”

Canon’s commitment to sustainability spans across responsible business, society and the environment. It continues to monitor and assess its environmental impact to identify ways to improve its sustainability performance across all areas of the business.

In 2017 Canon Middle East launched a powerful CSR campaign called ‘Follow Your Happiness’ driven by three pillars: Future, Youth and Happiness. Within each pillar there are a series of projects and initiatives, with a significant emphasis on the environment and sustainability, for Canon’s employees to participate in and drive the campaign. These initiatives were recognised industry-wide and Canon received the Creative Innovator Awards for 2017 in the 'Best Innovation - Public good' category for the CSR campaign.

EcoVadis is an independent CSR assessment agency. Its unique CSR assessment methodology covers 150 purchasing categories, 110 countries, and 21 CSR indicators. The methodology is also built on international CSR standards including the Global Reporting Initiative, the United Nations Global Compact, and the ISO 26000.
