The EcoVadis Rating reviews companies across a number of areas that are key to meeting sustainable targets, including the environment, labour & human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement impacts. The latest report from EcoVadis highlights that Canon performed extremely well across all areas, but particularly in regards to its environmental practices.
Canon said it was commended for designing products that were easy to recycle as well as for the measures it has taken to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions. This news follows Canon’s recent announcement on the latest additions to its established line of remanufactured devices – the imageRUNNER ADVANCE EQ80 4200 Series and 6275i.
Stuart Poore, EMEA Director of Sustainability and Government Affairs, commented: “As a business, we are committed to putting sustainability at the centre of everything we do. Being awarded a gold rating from EcoVadis for the seventh consecutive year is a testimony to this and will highlight to both our partners and customers that we are a trusted ally when it comes to sustainability.”
To date, EcoVadis has rated over 75,000 trading partners across 150 counties via its CSR assessment methodology that is built on international CSR standards including the Global Reporting Initiative, the United Nations Global Compact, and ISO 26000.
