Our Group CSR charter
As global corporate citizens, our aim is to excel in understanding and responding to the expectations of all stakeholders within the communities our business touches. The Ricoh Group CSR Charter, established in 2003, focuses on four key areas:
1. Integrity in corporate activities
To develop and provide useful, reliable, high quality products and services while maintaining information security and environmental sustainability. To compete fairly, openly and freely and retain healthy relationships with governments, citizens and organisations in our operating regions.
2. Harmony with the environment
To engage in ongoing activities to preserve the environment and implement technological innovations that reflect environmental concerns. You can read more about our environmental sustainability strategy on our Environment page.
3. Respect for people
To maintain a safe, cheerful working environment free from discrimination where employees can express autonomy and creativity and easily perform their duties. To be intolerant of any infringement on human rights.
To respect the culture and customs of the region and actively engage in activities that contribute to society and the region’s development. To engage in communication with the community and provide proper and unbiased disclosure of corporate information.
