This year marks the sixth time overall (2010, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020) in which Canon has won the esteemed Partner of the Year Award with ENERGY STAR, and the third consecutive year (2018, 2019, 2020) in which the company’s work earned the Sustained Excellence accolade.
The ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award is given only to those partners who have received Partner of the Year recognition for a minimum of two consecutive years. Winners must have gone above and beyond the criteria needed to qualify for this distinction, in addition to representing energy-efficient products, services, homes and buildings in the commercial, industrial and public sectors.
“Canon is honoured to receive ENERGY STAR’s Sustained Excellence Award, which truly reflects our ongoing commitment to social and environmental responsibility through our Kyosei philosophy,” said Shinya Fukuda, Executive Director and General Manager, Canon U.S.A. Inc. “By creating technological solutions with sustainability top-of-mind, we are not only contributing to the welfare of communities worldwide; we are simultaneously respecting the environment and helping to reduce customer and consumer costly energy waste.”
