The London head office of Ricoh Europe Plc., (formerly NRG Management Ltd.), holds a “Team Day” every year, when its employees take part in volunteer activities in the local community during working hours. The Team Day offers employees opportunities to engage in social contribution activities as well as to talk about social contribution with other members of the company they do not usually work with, helping to raise their awareness of corporate social responsibility. Ricoh Europe's policies, which include the fostering of young people, environmental protection, and participation by all, are reflected in all its activities, which are run systematically by a four-member committee and repeatedly upgraded. In fiscal 2006, Ricoh Europe carried out a garden project to create a new “Playhut” playground for children in cooperation with a charitable institution in the east end of London. Eighty-one per cent of all employees participated in the project, resulting in a satisfaction rate of 96%. It plans to continue supporting the charity in fiscal 2007.
