BRAMPTON, ON., APRIL 20, 2022 – Canon Canada Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, has been named one of Canada’s Greenest Employers for 2022. The award recognizes employers leading the way in creating a culture of environmental awareness. This marks the fourth consecutive year that Canon Canada has earned this recognition.


Canon Canada’s focus on the environment and sustainability is a reflection of Canon’s global Kyosei philosophy: all people – regardless of race, religion or culture – harmoniously living and working together into the future. This philosophy guides the company’s efforts to help sustain the environment for future generations through maximizing resource efficiency, fostering sustainable business practices and actively promoting employee environmental events and education.


“Canon Canada being named one of Canada’s Greenest Employers for the fourth year in a row is a testament to the continuous collective efforts of our employees to help shape a more sustainable world, both locally and globally,” says Nobuhiko Kitajima, President and CEO of Canon Canada. “We strive to be responsible corporate citizens in our day-to-day operations, and with how we interact with the communities where we work and live. This recognition builds on our reputation as an employer committed not only to sustainable practices but also to empowering our employees to make a difference.”


Now in its 15th year, Canada’s Greenest Employers is an editorial competition organized by the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project in partnership with the Globe and Mail. The editors evaluate and select the recipients based on four sets of criteria: unique environmental initiatives and programs developed; success in reducing their environmental footprint; employee involvement in programs and whether they contribute any unique skills; and whether their initiatives have become linked to the employer’s public identity and whether they attract new people to the organization.


Canon Canada’s environmental initiatives and endeavours include the following:
