A third party organization establishes criteria for judging environmentally-friendly products and grants a Type 1 label to them based on said criteria.
More specifically, the third party organization comprehensively evaluates the production, use (friendliness to the health of customers, product safety, and the energy-saving performance of the product), and disposal of the product, as well as the resource conservation derived from the product. Finally, the third party organization grants a Type 1 label to products that excel in the above performance items.
Ricoh has been actively obtaining Type 1 environmental labels for its products. We are able to attach a Type 1 environmental label to qualifying products.
