Everybody should be able to use our products to their full potential. That’s why we strive to meet or exceed Section 508 compliance standards.

Learn how we incorporate accessibility and usability into our product design process, and review our Voluntary Product Accessibility Templates to evaluate our products' compliance with Section 508. 

Biodiversity and Environmental CSR

Biodiversity, or the variety of life on Earth, consists of species that interact with and depend on each other for survival — humans included. Read about our sustainability goals and the actions we take to conserve that biodiversity locally and globally.

Conservation Programs and Certifications

The Earth's resources are limited and precious, so we want to conserve energy wherever possible. Learn how you can lower your energy use and operating costs through our green manufacturing processes and compliance with ENERGY STAR®, EPEAT® and ISO 14001. And read about tools and services that help you make green choices. 


Product Stewardship and Recycling

Proper recycling of your devices, parts, packing materials and toner cartridges contributes greatly to our sustainability efforts. Take advantage of the numerous recycling programs we offer, and learn about state-specific regulations.

Safety data sheets

To support our environmental sustainability and product compliance efforts, we provide safety data sheets (SDSs) that describe the proper use of chemical substances and the emergency measures you should take in case of an accident. You can search for SDSs by product category and name. 

Green procurement 

Concern for the environment is in our DNA. Ricoh Company, Ltd. is the driving force for sustainability throughout the entire organization, and it provides the standards and guidelines that all Ricoh companies follow. Collectively, our environmental efforts roll up into the Ricoh Group Sustainability Report, which includes information on green procurement and other green initiatives.
