Pursuing the ideal society (Three Ps BalanceTM)

We need to reduce the environmental impact of mankind's economic activities to a level that the Earth's self-recovery capabilities can deal with.

The purpose of environmental conservation activities is to reduce environmental impact to a level that the Earth's self-recovery capabilities can deal with and sustain the global environment. The Ricoh Group, by considering how the relationship among the three Ps (planet, people, and Prosperity) in environmental, social, and economic activities has changed over time, defines the kind of society we should pursue and carries out its responsibility as a company to create such a society.

The Ricoh group's efforts toward achieving the ideal society

Ultimately, our goal is to help build a society in which the impact on its environment is maintained at a level that never exceeds the Earth's self-recovery capabilities. To make this happen, more than merely implementing environmental conservation activities is necessary; society needs to formulate clear-cut long-term visions and goals that will guide the specific actions required.

At the Ricoh Group, we have set environmental goals for 2030 and 2050 as milestones toward the final goal. We also determine Environmental Action Plans every three years and promote sustainable environmental management.

In order to contribute to the future of the global environment and society, the Ricoh Group will make efforts with focus on long-term vision and clear goals.


Environment impact remains within the self-recovery capabilities of the global environment.
