Set the bar high with ENERGY STAR® and other energy-saving technology

Many of our products have earned the coveted ENERGY STAR label, which means they meet the energy efficiency requirements set by the Environmental Protection Agency. See which ones received the honor, and review stats related to energy consumption, print/copy time and more.

In addition, Ricoh Americas has been an ENERGY STAR partner for more than 20 years. Our West Caldwell, New Jersey, facility has been an ENERGY STAR-certified building since 2014. And in 2014, we were honored to receive an “Excellence in Energy Efficient Product Design” award from the Coalition for Federal Procurement. This award recognizes an outstanding contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by designing energy-efficient products and educating consumers about energy efficiency.

 

Eco‐Responsible Procurement - Ecologo

Ricoh is an active participant in numerous industry organizations and associations that help in establishing standards that are beneficial for the imaging equipment industry and our customers.

Founded in 1988 by the Government of Canada and now recognized world‐wide, EcoLogo is North America’s largest, most respected environmental standard and certification mark. EcoLogo provides customers – public, corporate and consumer – with assurance that the products and services bearing the logo meet stringent standards of environmental leadership. EcoLogo has today certified thousands of products to help consumers and businesses identify the world’s most sustainable products.

The EcoLogo program is a "Type I" eco‐label, as defined by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). This means that the program compares products and services with others in the same category, develops rigorous and scientifically relevant criteria that reflect the entire lifecycle of the product, and awards the EcoLogo to those that are verified by an independent third party as complying with the criteria.

This Program is one of two such programs in North America that has been successfully audited by the Global EcoLabelling Network (GEN) as meeting ISO 14024 standards for eco labelling. Through Ricoh Canada’s certifications with Ecologo, we are further enhancing our complete portfolio of products and services to reduce environmental impact and cost, while improving productivity for our customers and creating shared value for our society.
