Canon Production Print has taken out the Keypoint intelligence Buyers Lab Pacesetter award in Wide Format Sustainability: Product Innovation.
The accolade acknowledges Canon as the leading company supporting environmental improvements and initiatives in the wide format printing systems market, through product innovation, across its complete portfolio.
In its research of the global wide format printing systems market, Keypoint Intelligence identified Canon's outstanding commitment to sustainability through innovative features across its wide format print devices.
As part of the assessment, Keypoint Intelligence invited all leading document imaging companies to complete an exhaustive questionnaire detailing their environmental efforts and programs in a range of sustainability areas, including business operations, products, recycling, and goal tracking. Participating companies were also asked to make key personnel available for in-depth interviews with the Keypoint Intelligence analyst team to give a complete picture of their sustainability strategies. After gathering this data, analysts used a proprietary rating scale to determine the Pacesetter Award winners.
Keypoint Intelligence said Canon's commitment to innovation in sustainable wide format printing technology is evident in its extensive portfolio, featuring the Colorado, Arizona, PlotWave and ColorWave lines of printers, and also in its award-winning CrystalPoint and UVgel ink technology.
Canon actively strives to minimise the overall impact of its products throughout the complete product lifecycle. This starts with R&D and development – being engineered into the design and use – and continues all the way to end of life and the reuse, refurbishment and remanufacturing of products and parts.
