In recognition of its commitment and dedication to energy efficiency and the ENERGY STAR program, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging, has received the 2011 ENERGY STAR award for Excellence in Energy Efficient Product Design from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The Company's accomplishments will be recognized at an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C. on April 12, 2011. This is the 12th ENERGY STAR award earned by Canon U.S.A.
“Canon is pleased to be recognized by the Environmental Protection Agency with the ENERGY STAR award for Excellence in Energy Efficient Product Design," said Junichi Yoshitake, senior vice president and general manager, Imaging Systems Group, Canon U.S.A. “Guided by our corporate philosophy of Kyosei – 'all people, regardless of race, religion, or culture, harmoniously living and working together into the future,’ Canon’s commitment to the environment is reflected in our ongoing efforts to develop products that incorporate sustainable life-cycle planning and improved resource efficiency from the initial concept to post-consumer phases.”
