Environmental sustainability and corporate responsibility
The Ricoh Way means the right way for the planet
Driving sustainability for our future
Our duty is to not only look out for our customers, suppliers and employees but the planet, too. Sustainability has been part of our DNA for 46 years since 1976, we've been an ENERGY STAR® partner – and recognized 7 years in a row as a partner of the year. We also continually promote sustainability in our business practices. Our goals include reducing our environmental footprint through programs such as resource conservation, pollution prevention and energy conservation. In fact, reducing our environmental impact is so critical to us that we've committed to making strides towards achieving zero Green House Gas Emissions by 2050.
Save the environment – and save money
As part of the Ricoh Way – and our dedication to the SDGs, we've established a set of guiding principles and values that serve as the foundation for all our business activities. Abiding by these principles in corporate ethics, compliance, whistle-blowing, codes of conduct, responsible materials gathering and maintaining transparency in management, we continuously strive to improve our governance, and in doing so ultimately enhance our corporate value.
