Sustainability? We're on board.

We see our organization as a citizen of the world, and we're on a mission to help create a sustainable society. We practice environmental conservation throughout our business by identifying ways to reduce environmental impact and improve the Earth's self-recovery capabilities. Along with other groups within Ricoh, we are pursuing the "Ideal Society" with long-term environmental goals and principles.

The Comet Circle™ represents our concept. As a manufacturing and sales company, we can make a big contribution by managing the lifecycles of our products. At every lifecycle stage, we find ways to reduce environmental impact. Of course, we can't do this alone, so we involve our partners and customers whenever possible.
