Conservation of Biodiversity -Business-Related Activities-
Clearly grasping the correlation between our business activities and the ecosystem, we are promoting biodiversity-friendly activities.
The Ricoh Group created a map to show the exact relationship between our business activities and biodiversity. The “Map of Corporate Activities and Biodiversity” follows the JBIB format to show the relationship between corporate activities, such as product lifecycle and land use, and biodiversity at a glance. From the map, we learned that the copier industry has a large impact on the ecosystem due to procurement of raw materials (e.g., paper pulp and metals) and manufacturing and consumption of paper. We will use the information from the map in our conservation activities in close cooperation with each business division.
For effective conservation activities, we survey and analyze the impact of our business activities on biodiversity.
