Canon believes in being socially responsible and we are actively involved in various projects. These projects include reaching out to the less fortunate and being an active patron of sports, as well as a leading supporter of environmental conservation efforts.
Canon also contribute to the community wellbeing through its strong support for sports activities.
One excellent example is the 12 years long-standing partnership with Singapore Bowling Federation (SBF), which helps local bowlers realise their full potential at international events like the Asian Games Champion and the World Bowling Women’s Championships.
This long term sponsorship enables SBF to develop more customised programmes to help athletics, and at the same time elevate the popularity of bowling as a national sport in Singapore.
Efforts include energy and resource conservation, elimination of hazardous substances, increasing transportation efficiency to reduce CO2 emissions and utilising product-packaging materials with low environmental burden. Ink and toner cartridges are collected and recycled through the Project Homecoming initiative. Find out more about our Environmental Initiatives.
To cultivate staff awareness and habits to protect the environment, Canon Singapore, as well as all the offices under Canon Asia Marketing Group, participated in the Earth Hour campaign every year, in March.
Staffs were encouraged to participate in Earth Hour by turning off their home lights. This received an overwhelming response with staff voluntarily pledging their support. Earth Hour pledging raised the awareness of climate change and everyone can make a big difference in saving energy.
