Committed to a sustainable future for the Earth, society and our business
The Ricoh Group believes in growing together with society. We have made it our mission to address the issues society faces, going beyond simply responding to a constantly changing world to create new value that can realize sustainable growth.
Our employees are dedicated to raising awareness of social issues, and to contribute to solving those issues through business operations, putting into action ideas that promise a sustainable future for all.
Contributing to solving social challenges
The Ricoh Group is working to solve society's problems in two ways — "Contribution to resolution of social issues through business activities" and "Commitment to and responsibility for social contribution."
Our efforts to solve social issues through business activities is one pillar called "Valuecreating CSR," a strategy founded on the idea that corporate growth can come about by contributing to society. We study global issues to identify opportunities to provide effective solutions through our technology, products, services and human resources, as well as through collaborations with other stakeholders. These initiatives allow us to tap into new markets, find new customers and drive innovations that resolve or at least alleviate global concerns.
The other pillar, social contributions, refers to activities engaged by the Group or its employees in selected areas of focus. These may include support given to NPOs that are separate from our business functions.
To ensure continuing enthusiasm for both types of initiatives, we offer training to raise awareness of social issues among our employees and foster a corporate culture that is always ready to take on challenges.
