    reducing waste, including:

    100 percent recovery and zero landfill waste by reusing parts,
    recycling materials and utilizing energy recovery. Canon promotes
    recycling among customers and has recovered more than 127,000 tons of
    cartridges.

    copying to reduce office paper waste, and has developed a system to
    collect discarded paper, computer media and other waste that can be
    recycled.
        * Canon extended its waste reduction reach to employee
    cafeterias, instituting an incentive program that offers employees
    discounts on beverages if they use their personal mugs rather than
    disposable cups. Canon also promotes many additional internal
    conservation activities.
