Environment and sustainability
Driving sustainability for our future
Ricoh sees a sustainable society as one that balances Planet (the environment), People (society) and Profit (our economic activities).
Ricoh establishes the Environmental Promotion Section in 1976. 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 is taking action against climate change through all corporate activities to materialize the vision of “Fulfilment through Work” with the Spirit of Three Loves (Love your Neighbour, Love your Country, Love your Work), our founding principles.
SDGs is a growing focus and companies that do not respond to them will be eliminated from the market. At the same time, Ricoh views ESG initiatives as mandatory requirement to realize a sustainable society that will enables us to grow, be a leader in society, offer a best-in-class workplace, and capture future opportunities for our businesses.
ESG is ever changing and I expect all ESG advocates in our region to learn and grow with the current trend. Let our employees embrace lifelong learning and growth with our ESG leadership.
I also sincerely request all our Ricoh employees to oblige to the duties of contributing to the community, solving customer problems, and making the world a better place.
