More than 60 Canon employees participated in Canon Australia’s Business Clean Up efforts recently at ELS Halls Park in North Ryde, Sydney, as part of the Clean Up Australia Day initiative on March 4, 2018.
Canon Oceania recently came on board as business sponsor of Clean Up Australia and staff from the Sydney office were joined by Clean Up Australia founder, Ian Kiernan. Canon managing director, Yusuke Mizoguchi said the initiative is in line with the company’s commitment to sustainability, supporting local communities and the environment.
Australians clock up over 2.1 tonnes of waste per person each year, one of the highest figures in the world.
Speaking about the benefits of business showing their support through Business Clean Up Day, Kiernan said: “It’s not just about the rubbish we collect on the day, it’s about creating an awareness of the importance of cleaning up, fixing up and conserving our environment. I cannot think of a better way for a business to build a strong team than to throw them a challenge where they can make a real difference.”
