For the second year in a row, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognized Ricoh with the
highly-coveted ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year Award. This latest accolade acknowledges Ricoh's diligent work to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by manufacturing energy-efficient products, adopting sustainable approaches to its operations and supply chain, and educating consumers and employees about energy efficiency.
Our duty is to not only look out for our customers, suppliers and employees, but society and the planet, too. So when we pursue success, there’s only one way we want to achieve it — responsibly. Ricoh's corporate social responsibilities charter includes these principles that guide our actions:
In our ongoing efforts to redirect waste from landfill, Ricoh Canada runs a recycling program for all Ricoh equipment sold in Canada. Through this recycling program, your floor standing device will have the non-recyclable parts removed, and the remaining recyclable elements reduced to pieces, (approximately the size of a nickel) before being separated into various metals and plastics to be used for new products. For every Ricoh machine that is recycled by Ricoh, 98.4% of the machine is recovered in the recycling process.
For more details on how to have your Ricoh floor standing device recycled, please contact your local Ricoh branch or dealer.
