Canon Presents "Generation Green" Initiative
Canon, a leader in imaging and office solutions, today announced an initiative that will combine the Company's latest environmentally-conscious PIXMA, SELPHY and imageCLASS printer products and solutions under one corporate brand name: Generation Green. In addition, Canon offers a variety of solutions in its PIXMA, SELPHY and imageCLASS printer products that are integrated into this initiative such as paper saving technology, minimized product packaging, energy saving measures and the industry's longest-running toner recycling program.
