28 June 2018 - 12:00am

Following the growing social global movement for sustainable development, industry leader Ricoh Philippines encourages Filipinos to think and act for the future of the environment through its Global Eco Action program this month.

 

Established in 2006, the Ricoh Global Eco Action program aims to enhance eco-awareness and improve the quality of environmental management. This year, Ricoh puts the focus on sustainable goals with the theme “Think and Act – as you are.”

 

To kick off the Global Eco Action month, Ricoh Philippines led a whole day of biodiversity tour and tree-planting activities in La Mesa Ecopark in Quezon City that showcased the importance of nature and the need to take care of it.

 

“Since the world is inevitably consuming environmental resources, it is our duty to give back to nature by taking care of it,” said Aida Ortega, performance excellence and sustainability officer at Ricoh Philippines. “As part of a company that follows an environmental management program, we always take into consideration the environmental aspects and impacts of our operations.”

 

Aside from the environmental day in La Mesa, Ricoh Philippines will also hold outreach activities in various communities. Ricoh is also in coordination with several NGOs to implement programs with the goal of elevating environmental awareness and consciousness.

 

“I’m extremely delighted to be a part of a company that also puts into consideration our environment for the greater good,” said Jeanette Barawid, account manager for Ricoh Philippines.

Ricoh (Philippines), Inc. President/CEO-Frederic Sulit further emphasize the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) of Ricoh Global with the aim of pursuing not only business profitability but also contributing to social issues.

 

In line with this, Ricoh Phils. held its 10th year Scholastical Recognition & Awards to deserving Ricoh children. A decade of giving monetary support to young academic achievers, whose parents are Ricoh employees.

 

This year’s joint event of Eco Action and Scholastical Recognition & Awards will continue to boost motivation not just academically but enhancing environmental consciousness of our children.
