Canon's founding mission was to build a company that created high-quality cameras. Canon realized this dream in 1936 when it released the Hansa Canon, the first 35mm focal-plane shutter camera. During the ensuing 60 years, our technological strengths have helped us to also become a leading digital imaging and networking company and a dominant force in personal and office printers, copiers, controllers and fax machines. We also have applied our innovative skills in environmental technologies, as well as medical, semiconductor, and broadcasting equipment. We will continue to develop innovative technologies as a means of bettering the world we live in — redefining the workplace and enhancing lifestyles.

Innovation has been a key ingredient in Canon's success throughout our history. We are one of the most prolific inventors of consumer and professional imaging solutions. Canon ranked #3 worldwide among all companies issued U.S. patents in 2004. For the last 20 years, Canon has maintained a global ranking in the top five, with a total of 26,528 U.S. patents granted in our almost 70-year corporate history.

Our R&D divisions in Japan and nine R&D facilities throughout the world are dedicated to developing custom products and solutions for customers worldwide.

That is why Canon is recognized for producing some of the worlds most energy efficient products.

Kyosei also drives our commitment to establishing good relations not only with our customers, but also with the communities in which we operate.

Our dedication to kyosei guides our tradition of commitment to protect and preserve our most precious of resources — the world we share, the communities we serve, and the lives we touch. We do this through environmental, conservation, recycling and sustainability initiatives. We also practice kyosei through social and educational programs on behalf of young people and those in need.
