Overall Picture of Sustainable Environmental Management
The Ricoh Group's sustainable environmental management activities focus on three core areas, which are underpinned solidly, enabling their effective and efficient implementation.
Pursuing the Ideal Society (Three Ps Balance TM)
We defined at the onset the kind of society we should aim for, while fulfilling our duty to continuously reduce society's environmental impact until we reach a level that the Earth's self-recovery capabilities can deal with.
The Comet CircleTM
Based on the "Comet Circle" concept, we aim to contribute to the building of a sustainable society that recycles resources.
