Canon India’s CSR endeavors are driven by their corporate philosophy of ‘Kyosei’, which mean the ‘spirit of living and working together for the common good’, which is considered foremost in the organization’s way of working and day-to-day operations.
However, their definition of the word is much broader and encompasses “all people-regardless of their race, religion or culture, harmoniously living and working together for the common good.”
Moving forward with this philosophy, they believe in standing in unison when it comes to their commitment to the community and strive to make a positive impact in the society and the environment.
The organization is involved in various community welfare programs aligned with their 4Es CSR policy implying Education, Eye Care, Environment and Empowerment, in an effort to build progressive self-reliant communities.
Through their flagship ‘Adopt a Village’ project, Canon has 4 adopted villages across the country, focusing on the overall development of the village communities with major focus on 4Es.
The organization is also associated with SOS Children’s Village across the country to encourage and support the overall development of children in these villages.
Continuing its corporate philosophy of ‘Kyosei’ – living and working together for the common good, Canon India, one of the leading digital imaging organization, made Children’s Day special for children from its adopted villages across the country.
