Committed to Sustainability

Our commitment to creating sustainable infrastructure and agriculture has been an integral part of our business practice for more than two decades. From our manufacturing processes to the way we conduct our daily business, we have always strived to make a positive and meaningful impact on environmental, economic, and societal challenges facing your communities and those in which we live and work.

Sustainability Goal Priorities

The work we do as an organization complements and supports the sustainable development goals adopted at the UN Summit in 2015.

We exist to improve productivity and workflows to meet the global demand for sustainable agriculture and infrastructure.
— Topcon Positioning Systems Vision Statement, 2016

The areas where our organization can best make an impact are:

Agriculture

Zero hunger

Our tools improve the management and measurement of cropping areas and sustainable agriculture. Through automation, we are helping create more effective sites, reduce physical hand labor, and increase yields, which leads to an improved food system.

Healthcare

Good health and well-being

Topcon Healthcare, a business division of Topcon Corporation, creates advanced technologies for modernized patient eye care. Improving eye exams and eye health helps early detection of diseases and increases medical efficiency, enriching and even saving lives.

Infrastructure

Sustainable cities and communities

Our infrastructure solutions support urban planning and management. Topcon tools are used to design, monitor, and maintain both developed and open spaces from degradation or urban encroachment.

Examples of Our Commitment to Sustainability

Improving the Green Shortcut

We helped reduce the environmental impact in the design of one of Norway’s biggest national roads.

Association of Equipment Manufacturers

Topcon has a long-time corporate involvement with the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM). In addition to infrastructure, we support their efforts around the environmental benefits of precision agriculture in the United States.

Finnegan’s Farm

Finnegan’s Farm, one of Ireland’s most prominent vegetable growers, uses Topcon technology to grow sustainably.

CyArk

We’ve partnered with prominent non-profit organization CyArk to thoroughly and accurately document culturally significant sites, benefitting current and future generations.

Bridges to Prosperity

Our support of Bridges to Prosperity (B2P), an organization committed to building trail bridges to improve people’s lives in rural areas worldwide, is changing lives in Africa.
