The following activities highlight Ricoh's commitment to supporting a sustainable society.
In January 2015 Ricoh Canada signed on as a National Sponsor to the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup. Ricoh Canada employees have diverted over 6,600 pounds of garbage from lakes, ponds and parks across Canada.
To coincide with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), World Environment Day, we initiated Ricoh Global Eco Action Day in 2005. On June 5 every year, all members of the Ricoh Group worldwide are encouraged to think about and take environmental actions, wear green to show their commitment, and share eco-mindfulness with a larger audience. Additionally, we turn off our billboards and signage — except for our solar- and wind-powered ones — for the day.
Some of the local actions taken by Ricoh employees include:
To further underscore the importance of sustainability, we work with partners from government and non-government organizations, as well as our stakeholders, to achieve shared goals.
We hope we inspire you to do more, too.
National Sweater Day is a fun way to learn about the importance of saving energy and to inspire you to use less heat all winter. In February Ricoh Canada celebrates National Sweater Day with a twist – we call it ‘Bad Sweater Day’ and encourage staff to put on their best "bad" sweaters and turn down the heat in recognition of climate change.
