Living and working together for the common good
At Canon, our global philosophy is kyosei.
Introduced in 1988, this philosophy clarifies Canon’s stance on partnerships formed with stakeholders in the region and defines how we, as an organisation, interact with our stakeholders: from communities to corporations and customers.
Kyosei envisions the achievement of a sustainable society in which all people regardless of race, religion or culture, live harmoniously and work together into the future.
Through our corporate activities based on kyosei, both globally and locally, Canon strives to resolve imbalances in the world.
We believe that each step we take in trying to work for the common good – as individuals and as an organisation – does make a real difference. Of course, actions speak louder than words. We aim to act morally, but more than this, we aim to make a positive difference to all we come into contact with and through our behaviour, contribute to positive change.
