Ricoh’s Forest Ecosystem Conservation activities

On the earth, various life habitats exist and unique ecosystems are maintained in forests, lakes and ponds, coral reefs, and oceans. If these ecosystems are damaged, the natural environment that is indispensable for maintaining the life of human beings will be harmed.Ricoh places priority particularly on forest ecosystems with rich biodiversity and has been promoting forest ecosystem conservation projects since fiscal 1999 in partnership with environmental NGOs and local communities.Unlike simple afforestation, the main aim of these activities is to protect the habitats of indigenous species and the life of residents. They are aimed at building a framework for a sustainable forest management.
