佳能公司自1937年创业以来，始终以创造世界一流产品为奋斗目标，积极推动事业向多元化和全球化发展，其研发、生产以及销售活动在全球展开，并通过在美 洲、欧洲、大洋洲、亚洲和日本地区建立区域性总部，展开全球化多种经营战略。 目前，佳能在全球以光学为核心的个人消费产品、办公产品以及工业产品等领域发 挥着巨大的作用。
Since establishment in 1937, Canon has been striving for producing the world-class products and pushing its cause more diversified and globalized with great momentum. It deploys its R&D, manufacturing and distribution worldwide and has enforced its diverse strategies by setting up regional headquarters in America, EU, Oceania, Asia and Japan. So far, Canon plays a big role in personal consumption products focused on optics, office supplies and industrial products.
基于“共生”理念，1996年，佳能启动旨在实现以技术服务社会，成为全球范 围内被信赖、受尊敬的企业这一目标的“全球优良企业集团构想”，积极推行“整 体最佳”和“重视利润”的意识改革和经营革新活动，构建了今日佳能的企业体制。
Grounded in “Co-Existence” and aiming to serve society with best technology and gain global trust and respect, Canon implemented its “globally super enterprise construction” and actively exercised ideology reform and operation innovation focused on “optimal performance” and “maximum profits” in 1996, which contributed to the presence of Canon’s current enterprise mechanism.
In 2009, Canon Group reached a annual revenue of $ 34.838 billion. Due to successive excellent performance for several years, Canon was selected as the 33rd “Global Super Brand” by Business Week in 2009. Now it has 241 subsidiaries and 168,879 employees worldwide(the data was valid before December 31, 2009).
佳能的远景目标是成为一百年、两百年(这个是否可以不要?译出来怪怪的)永久发展、持续繁荣的“真正的全球优 良企业”。为了世界繁荣和人类幸福，在培育对未来社会有益技术的同时，始终承 担起兼顾事业与环境保护，为社会发展贡献力量等社会责任！
Canon’s long-run goal is to become a sustainably developing and prosperous global super company. It has consistently undertaken the balance between self-development and environmental protection and its social responsibility of serving people while contributing to global prosperity, human well-beings and technology development.
