Environmental, Social & Governance

Our commitment to building a sustainable future

At Ricoh, ESG (Environmental, Social & Corporate Governance) has defined how we do business since the company was founded in 1936. It is central to our operations and touches every part of our organisation. 
We undertake a range of initiatives in alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to reduce our carbon footprint, conduct our business with integrity and help our communities prosper. 
In this respect, we support every stakeholder across our organisation from employees and customers to business partners and investors.

Sustainability is part of Ricoh’s DNA
