More Green - Canon Makes Calculators Out of Old Copiers - Huh?

“Although the cost of manufacturing products using recyclable products is higher than buying new raw materials off the shelf, we believe in doing something to preserve the environment,” says Canon Marketing (M) Sdn Bhd president and chief executive officer Liew Sip Chon.

"As the first office equipment manufacturer to implement a cartridge recycling program in 1990, Canon has long been committed to reducing our environmental impact," said Hendrik Verbrugghe, Marketing Manager, Canon Middle East.

"The launch of this calculator range is a small step towards a truly sustainable manufacturing program. Through continued improvements in resource efficiency, we hope to show that it is possible for all players in the industry to achieve a balance between environmental and business interests."
