During our latest expansion phase, Canon made a public offer to Axis’ shareholders and became a majority owner in 2015. Axis is continuing to operate as an independent company with a retained focus on strengthening its own operations. Together with Canon, we work in a systematic and focused way to handle sustainability risks, and on increasing awareness of them.
Sustainability has been a long-time concern for Axis. In 2007, we became a signatory of the UN Global Compact’s ten principles, which is the base for our sustainability strategy. This strategy and our work in this area have been shared in a yearly public report since 2010. Axis takes long-term economic, social and environmental responsibility for how our operations impact our stakeholders and we act according to our values, in an ethical, responsible and transparent way in our business relationships.
