Ethisphere Institute Commends Canon for its Global Leadership and Commitment to Integrity

Melville, N.Y. – For the third consecutive year, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, has been recognized as one of the 2020 World’s Most Ethical Companies by the Ethisphere Institute. Canon is the only company to be honored within the Imaging Technology industry category out of 132 honorees across 21 countries and 51 industries. The recognition highlights Canon’s ongoing innovative and proactive approach to corporate social responsibility initiatives and reflects the strong values, culture and leadership that continually drive the company forward.

“To be named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies by the Ethisphere Institute is an honor that speaks to the widespread integrity present at every single level of our organization,” said N. Scott Millar, senior vice president & general manager, Corporate Human Resources, Audit, Ethics & Business Consultation and senior vice president, Human Resources, Canon Solutions America, Inc. “This distinction recognizes our mission to implement positive change in businesses across the country. We are proud to carry it forward as we serve these communities through our advanced solutions and initiatives.”

“Congratulations to everyone at Canon, U.S.A. for earning this recognition,” said Ethisphere’s Chief Executive Officer, Timothy Erblich. “This is a moment to acknowledge the leaders working to advance corporate cultures defined by integrity and affirm those companies contributing to broader societal imperatives and the greater good.”

As a global leader dedicated to defining and advancing standards of ethical business practices, the Ethisphere Institute bases its assessment upon the company’s Ethics Quotient® (EQ) framework, which offers a quantitative way to determine a business’ performance in an objective, consistent and standardized manner. The information collected provides a comprehensive view into a company’s corporate governance, risk, sustainability, and compliance and ethics practices.

Scores are generated in five key categories:

Ethics and compliance program (35 percent)
Culture of ethics (20 percent)
Corporate citizenship and responsibility (20 percent)
Governance (15 percent)
Leadership and reputation (10 percent)

This year’s class of honorees profoundly illustrate how companies continue to be the driving force for improving communities, building capable and empowered workforces, and fostering corporate cultures focused on ethics and a strong sense of purpose.
