For the third consecutive year, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognized Ricoh with its prestigious ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year Award – as well as the ENERGY STAR Sustained Excellence Award for continued leadership and superior contributions to the program. These latest accolades acknowledge our work to foster environmental sustainability in our own operations and evangelize on behalf of sustainability to customers and the business community. As a company, we have committed to reducing the total lifecycle CO2 emissions of the Ricoh Group by 30 percent by 2020 and by 87.5 percent by 2050.

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.
