Canon Receives 2019 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year Award
On April 9th, Canon U.S.A. reported that it’s received a 2019 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year—Sustained Excellence Award for continued leadership and partnerships with ENERGY STAR. Canon’s accomplishments will be recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy at a ceremony in Washington, D.C,. on April 11, 2019.
The highest honor among ENERGY STAR Awards is the ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year—Sustained Excellence Award. The EPA presents the Sustained Excellence Award to partners that have already received ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year recognition for a minimum of two consecutive years and have gone above and beyond the criteria needed to qualify for recognition.
The ENERGY STAR program was implemented by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in the 1990s. The ENERGY STAR symbol is the government-backed symbol denoting a product for energy efficiency. The ENERGY STAR program is designed to provide simple, credible, and unbiased information that consumers and businesses rely on to make well-informed decisions.
This year marks the second consecutive year Canon has received the Sustained Excellence Award (2018, 2019), and the company’s fifth time overall receiving the Partner of the Year Award (2010, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019).
Canon has been an ENERGY STAR partner for over 20 years, offering more than 200 ENERGY STAR certified products that incorporate advanced energy-efficient technologies without compromising features or performance. Energy-efficient technologies implemented into nearly 200 of Canon’s devices are energy-saver mode, automatic duplex settings and low sleep power consumption.
Canon says that one of its products that exemplify the company’s commitment to environmental sustainability is the imageRUNNER ADVANCE Solutions (MFPs), which it says features advanced features to help reduce waste, as well as technology designed to provide low energy consumption to limit emissions.
“As a company taking great pride in our environmental sustainability, we value our dedication to our philosophy of Kyosei, displaying an on-going commitment to social and environmental responsibility, and our contributions to the welfare of the communities we serve through the foundations of youth, environment and community,” commented Kaz Moriguchi, vice president and general manager, Canon U.S.A.
