A Sustainable Headquarters Design Based on 'Kyosei'

Canon Americas Headquarters
Melville, New York, USA

“We are honored to be awarded LEED Gold certification and be recognized for our environmental conservation efforts at the Canon Americas Headquarters. …Our LEED Gold certification will serve as a symbol of Canon’s commitment to the environment and dedication to sustainable practices for years to come.”

Joe Adachi
President & CEO, Canon USA

The Canon Americas headquarters sets a new sustainability benchmark for Canon and its Long Island community.

HOK’s design solution is based on Canon’s corporate philosophy of “kyosei” – living and working together for the common good. The facility is as a model for environmental stewardship and innovation, serving all North and South American countries.  

One Canon Park is the largest commercial property on Long Island to achieve LEED Gold certification. Sustainable design strategies include extensive daylighting, energy-efficient equipment and materials, and a landscape featuring native species and drought-resistant vegetation. 

The high-performance campus design integrates the buildings with the area’s natural landscaping. The 52-acre site features a park-like setting with natural water features, walking trails and plenty of green space.  

Located off the Long Island Expressway near the Route 110 technology corridor, the building features state-of-the-art learning center, cafeteria and several other amenities. The garages include 90 parking spaces designated for low-emitting and fuel-efficient vehicles, charging stations for 12 plug-in electric vehicles, and throughout the facility, 136 bicycle storage spaces.
