The Sharp Corporation is a Japanese based multinational corporation that employs more than 50,000 people worldwide and designs and manufactures electronic products. Originally founded in Tokyo in September 1912, it takes its name from the Ever-Sharp mechanical pencil, which was invented by its founder Tokuji Hayakawa in 1915.
Hon Hai, a Taiwan-based electronics company that trades as Foxconn, acquired a 10% stake in the company in March 2012 and increased this to a 66% controlling stake in Sharp in 2016.
Today, Sharp manufactures a wide range of electronic products, including multifunction printing devices, audio-visual equipment for both the office and home entertainment, video projectors, LCD panels, solar panels, mobile phones, microwave ovens, air conditioners, cash registers, CMOS and CCD sensors used in cameras, and flash memory.

Environmental responsibility is in Sharp`s DNA. The Ever Sharp pencil, invented by its founder Tokuji Hayakawa, was the product behind our name – Sharp. Since it also turned an everyday disposable item into something reusable, saving precious wood along the way, it could also be considered our first environmentally responsible product.
All of Sharp’s factories and most of their offices meet the ISO 14001 standard: a framework that sets out the requirements for environmental management systems. They actively encourage environmental management and green awareness initiatives throughout their entire organisation.
In 2004, Sharp made becoming an environmentally advanced company part of their core philosophy. Sharp was the first manufacturer to receive the EU Eco Label for a TV and most Sharp multi-functional printers have been awarded and certified for their energy-saving and environmentally friendly characteristics, including:<\p>
Hundreds of Sharp products have received international awards for their outstanding eco-friendly design, demonstrating our commitment to producing environmentally friendly products which in turn enable us to achieve our aim of becoming an environmentally advanced company.
Sharp began pioneering solar technology in 1959, and today, Sharp solar technology can be found in homes, farms, factories, solar parks and public buildings around the world. Many of Sharp’s products make use of long-life LEDs which consume minimal amounts of electricity and yet have a long life span.
Sharp’s ‘Green Product Guidelines’ govern the entire lifecycle of every single product that they produce. Sharp strives for low energy consumption, reduced waste, less packaging, better recycling and products with a longer life.
