Canon’s corporate philosophy is Kyosei - a Japanese word that means living and working together for the common good - and this is a principle that is embraced by all Canon employees. It shapes our mission and our values, the way we treat our people and conduct our business. It embodies our goal of contributing to the prosperity of the world and the happiness of humanity.
As a global company with this philosophy at our heart, we work to realise our vision - that all people, regardless of race, religion or culture, can live and work together in harmony. This means taking responsibility for the impact of our activities, respecting our customers, the communities and countries we operate within, as well as our natural environment.
The culture is further Illustrated by how we behave and, at a corporate level, we work towards the 3 Selfs disciplines.
