Regional – Supporting pan European partnerships

We work proactively with several major partnerships in the region. In line with our corporate philosophy of Kyosei, we want to fulfil our corporate social responsibilities, make a difference to people and the environment, and meet stakeholder expectations.

Our partners include the Red Cross and the Canon Foundation. We encourage our national offices to work with these partnerships alongside the local collaborations they’re involved with.

Red Cross
We work with local Red Cross societies in 16 countries in Europe. The projects we support focus on giving disadvantaged young people education and life skills opportunities. For example, we educate young people about human rights, HIV and other important topics. Other projects we support give migrant children educational support to learn and achieve more. In other countries, youngsters may get their first ever chance of a holiday, improving their well-being and promoting social inclusion.

Canon Inc., our parent company in Japan, also channels donations to global appeals following major natural disasters through the international Red Cross. These help support victims and relief efforts, meeting our duty to humanity.

The Canon Foundation
The Foundation was set up in 1987 to promote mutual understanding between Europe and Japan. Research fellowships of up to a year are offered and cover a wide range of topics from molecular biology to garden architecture to tribal hunting. Grant recipients from Europe study in Japan and vice versa.
