Our values

Live out our values daily

Our ideals

Canon Bretagne has integrated the great ideals of the Japanese headquarters to its corporate culture:

  • Kyosei: living and working in harmony for the common good is our philosophy.
  • San-ji: includes 3 basic attitudes: self-motivation, self-control, self-awareness.

These values ​are general guidelines in how we consider the development of the company and of each of our employees.

Ethics and whistleblowing

Canon Bretagne has defined for its employees and partners a set of rules of conduct to be adopted in the exercise of their professional activity and has set up a professional alert system intended to allow employees and persons outside the company to report any breaches of the rules laid down by these codes that they may come to notice, in accordance with the provisions of Article 8 of Law No. 2016-1691 of December 9, 2016 relating to transparency, the fight against corruption and the modernization of economic life (“Sapin 2 Law”) and Decree No. 2017-564 of April 19, 2017 relating to the procedures for collecting reports issued by whistleblowers within legal entities under public law or under private or state administration.

The professional whistleblowing system also allows any Canon Bretagne employee and any person outside the company to report, in good faith, facts likely to be contrary to legal obligations.

Canon Bretagne expects its employees and partners to act in accordance with applicable laws, codes, professional standards, guidelines, policies and procedures.

Trust and innovation

Nothing is more important for us than to establish a relationship of confidence and stability with our partners. We have developed the “Canon Production System” for continuous improvement of performance and regular technological and methodological innovation.

Equality women-men

The law “for the freedom to choose one’s professional future” of September 5, 2018 created a tool called “index” to allow the self-evaluation of companies with the aim of measuring the pay gap between women and men.

Composed of 5 indicators, the women-men index is scored on 100 points with a required minimum of 75 points. Canon Bretagne obtains a higher score with 89 points out of 100 for the year 2023.

Details of the points obtained for each indicator:

  • Pay gap: 39/40
  • Differences in individual increases: 20/20
  • Promotion spreads: 15/15
  • Percentage of employees increased upon return from maternity leave: 15/15
  • Number of employees of the under-represented sex among the 10 highest paid: 0/10

Total calculable indicators: 89/100

In accordance with the collective agreement on ‘professional equality between women and men and quality of working life’ of 22 September 2022, Canon Bretagne intends to continue the efforts undertaken to constantly improve its scores and continue to promote professional equality, particularly in the areas of:

  • equal pay,
  • promoting gender diversity in jobs and career management,
  • the reconciliation between private and professional life,
  • occupational safety and health.

Sponsorship / Patronage

Because we also think “local”, Canon Bretagne has been supporting for several years charitable actions such as “the Telethon”, “les virades de l’espoir” … but also sports actions such as “Le Marathon vert”, “Acigné au feminin”… and different cultural actions for “le cinema 35”, “Le Mont St Michel”…, in which our employees are involved.
