Business Activities -Production: Resource Conservation / Recycling-

We are making every effort to reduce discharged matter and alleviate the waste of resources at our global sites.

Concept

The Ricoh Group is endeavoring to globally maximize resource productivity, primarily by limiting the generation of discharged matter and reducing water consumption. Regarding discharged matter, measures have been implemented to reduce resource waste and cost, focusing on discharged matter generated during the production of polymerized toners and associated with the thermal media business, as well as the packaging materials used for transportation between production sites inside and outside of Japan. Also, in an effort to minimize the use of water, which as a limited resource has become a major global concern, Ricoh has set Group targets for effective use of this precious resource, thereby helping conserve the global environment. In addition, we established a system in 2005 to conduct audits of contract waste disposal service providers to ensure appropriate disposal of our waste in Japan. To enhance this system, in October 2009 we launched a scheme to recognize excellent service providers.
