In 2011 Ricoh published a report which conforms to the standards defined by the GRI and self-declared with a "B". This grading has not yet been validated by the body.
Nevertheless, internationally the company is acknowledged to be making considerable efforts in terms of sustainable development. Thus Ricoh is ranked in the Corporate Knights "Global 100" ranking of the most sustainable companies in the world for the 7th year in succession. Finally, Ricoh's environmental approach has been welcomed as "best practice" by the FTSE4Good index which the company belongs to.
As far as results are concerned, even though the CO2 emissions increased in 2010 with respect to 2009, they are still in line with the ambitious aims to reduce the environmental impact by 87.5% by 2050. In addition, the stage of a 20% reduction before the end of 2010 was achieved, which augurs very well for the future.
Ricoh is also innovative in terms of its products and their design in order to minimise the environmental impact as much as possible during use, which is the most important phase.
In addition, the company publishes eco-declarations on its products, which is an entirely praiseworthy approach and one that is in particular still not very widespread at all in this sector of the information technology industry.
Finally, from a social and societal point of view, first of all the company has put a lot into projects locally which directly or indirectly affect employees' activities and lives. The number of staff involved in a voluntary community action is constantly growing.
The Ethisphere Institute also singles it out as one of the most ethical companies in the world for the 3rd year running.
