Ricoh Global Eco Action 2016

TOKYO, May 30, 2016 — The Ricoh Group will position a whole month, starting on Wednesday June 1, as “Ricoh Global Eco Action Month” and will conduct a special event, “Ricoh Global Eco Action 2016” to encourage Group company employees to think about the environment and take eco actions. 

Since the “United Nations World Environment Day” falls on Sunday June 5 this year, the Ricoh Group will hold the “Common Action Day” for the entire Ricoh Group on Friday, June 3.  

“Ricoh Global Eco Action” began in 2006 and is organised annually with the aim of enhancing eco-awareness and improving the quality of environmental management. This year will mark the eleventh year of the event.

At COP21 held in December last year, 195 countries agreed to set new goals to combat climate change and adopted the Paris agreement. Various efforts need to be taken to achieve these goals. The Ricoh Group places importance on activities such as Ricoh Global Eco Action, which provides an opportunity for each Ricoh Group employee around the world to recognise the need to conserve the environment and encourages them to take action as an individual as well as a member of society. 

The Ricoh Group promotes sustainable environmental management globally alongside the simultaneous achievement of both environmental conservation and profit generation. Many people have been invited to participate in eco action. To promote relevant action, the characteristics of each country and region have been reflected in the program, as well as the fun and ease of each action were also taken into consideration. Each organisation within the group has created their own program. The network of participants has expanded from employees to include relatives, friends, and customers, and the action program has also evolved in various directions.

The theme for this year’s event is “Sharing the ‘eco mind’ together.” We will hold an event with about 110,000 Ricoh Group employees around the world, in Japan, Asia Pacific, Europe, and the Americas. As well as taking every opportunity to encourage participation in activities and sharing information via various different media, the aim is to join forces with employees, families, friends, local residents, and customers to develop the scope of eco action on an even larger scale. 

Major activities for this year are shown below.

Activities to be conducted on June 3, the “Common Action Day”
  • Ricoh will turn off signage on all billboards and Ricoh logo signboards at all Group companies around the world.
  • On June 3, the electricity used by Ricoh Group facilities all over the world will be provided via natural energy by making use of the Renewable Energy Certificate.
  • Employees will come to work wearing green articles of clothing and accessories to highlight “Eco Action Month.”
