The Global 100 is an extensive data-driven corporate sustainability assessment and inclusion is limited to a select group of the top 100 large-cap companies in the world. Ricoh’s presence on the list for a decade affirms its success incorporating social, economic, ecological and cost benefits.
“At Ricoh, commitment to sustainability has been established over many decades,” said Kenichi Kanemaru, Ricoh corporate executive vice president. “Alongside our expertise in office imaging equipment, production print solutions, document management systems and IT services – our commitment to sustainable business is a core part of who we are. We are proud of our advanced focus upon reducing environmental impacts and costs for our clients, while assuring the integrity and confidentiality of their information and ensuring responsible business in each community where we operate.”
Ricoh has set aggressive long term targets to reduce impacts by 87.5% by 2050 (compared to 2000 levels). In addition, its approach to lifecycle management considers all aspects of product and business activities. This, in turn, minimises resource use and maximises the reuse, recycle and reduction of raw materials.
The prestigious recognition adds to a list of accolades for Ricoh. Its approach has been recognized by some of the most credible ratings in the world, for example, the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, The FTSE4GOOD index series and OEKOM Corporate ratings.
