Environment and sustainability

Ricoh sees a sustainable society as one that balances Planet (the environment), People (society) and prosperity (our economic activities).

The transformation of our ‘environment’ is making it vital for corporate activities to address emerging social issues. Ricoh has delivered customer value over the years by innovating, but we now bring that same innovation to the restoration of our environment.

Whether that’s through improving our own business efficiencies, providing recycling for our machines and toners or supporting organisations championing green policies, we aim to lead businesses in being sustainable.


Ricoh Global eco action

Ricoh’s promotion of sustainable environmental management focuses on the 4 pillars of:

  • energy conservation and the prevention of global warming
  • resource conservation and recycling
  • pollution prevention
  • conservation of biodiversity

Since 2006, the Ricoh Group sets 5 June; ‘World Environment Day’, as ‘Ricoh Global Eco Action’, when all members of Ricoh Group around the world think about the global environment, take eco actions, and improve their eco awareness.
