Canon (www.Canon-CNA.com), a global provider of imaging technologies and services, today announces it has been awarded the EcoVadis gold rating, for a fifth consecutive year, which puts the company within the top 5% for sustainability performance.
To decide company ratings, the EcoVadis CSR analysis system assesses 21 criteria across four themes of environment, fair labour practices, labour and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement. Canon submitted data relating to CSR practices across its businesses to support these themes.
