In line with our Made for Life philosophy,
Canon Medical Systems is committed to
delivering high-quality solutions that
meet the needs of a rapidly evolving society.

Without a doubt, the impact of the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic has made its mark around the world. As such, we are now required to live according to a "new normal" in which our previously shared common sense is no longer sufficient, and a wholescale reevaluation of our core values, needs, and daily behaviors is required. The environment faced by healthcare facilities is only set to become more challenging, and further improvement in hospital management efficiency will be integral to their success.

Through the provision of new solutions that incorporate healthcare IT, AI, and IoT, Canon Medical Systems Corporation is contributing to the efficiency and quality of medical care and to supporting healthcare professionals working at the forefront of clinical practice. To this end, we will continue to support the front lines of medical care by offering rapid genetic testing systems for the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) and medical equipment that helps with the diagnostic evaluation of novel coronavirus infection, such as CT and ultrasound systems. We will also continue to be sensitive to society’s ever-changing issues and needs, responding flexibly and swiftly, as this will allow us to create new value and contribute to the future of healthcare.

Solving issues by collaborating with stakeholders

With offices in more than 150 countries, and a workforce of more than 10,000 people, we believe it is our duty to have a positive impact on the world we live in. As such, we have collaborated with a range of stakeholders, including healthcare facilities, public authorities, NGOs, NPOs and employees to identify five materialities that can help us achieve this goal.

The development of an environmental promotion system

The Canon Medical Systems considers environmental stewardship to be a primary responsibility of all its employees. As such, we have adopted proactive measures that ensure our impact on the environment is kept to a minimum, both in Japan and overseas.

From educating our team about climate change to conducting a Global Environmental Meeting to discuss the establishment of an environmental management system, we are always working towards the development of a sustainable world, in line with the Canon Group Environmental Management Policy.

Strengthening of global compliance and information security

In early 2020, we conducted a survey on legal compliance and information security which confirmed that employees from our 12 overseas subsidiaries are fully compliant with both our Standards of Conduct and Privacy Policy. Moving forward, we will continue to promote the importance of these guidelines to ensure that our teams are properly educated about the risks involved with managing highly sensitive data.
