The Ricoh Group established The RICOH Way as a set of guiding principles and values that serves as the foundation for all our business activities. Abiding by these principles in corporate ethics and compliance and maintaining transparency in management, we continuously strive to improve our governance, and in doing so ultimately enhance our corporate value.
We strongly believe that responsible global citizenship calls for a corporate culture that embraces a sense of mission to meet the expectations of diverse stakeholders—a culture that is committed to operating under the highest ethical standards in line with the expectations of society as a whole.
Based on this belief, we advance the operations of the entire Group under The RICOH Way, strengthening our governance and ceaselessly promoting a culture of integrity while working toward sustainable corporate growth.
The Ricoh Group has also introduced a corporate audit system, in which audit and supervisory board members strengthen the effectiveness of audits and the monitoring of top management, while the Board of Directors, including outside directors, maintains strict oversight over the decision-making process to make sure it is always transparent and fair. Furthermore, by expanding the executive officer system, the segregating of duties between oversight and business execution is clarified, resulting in speedier decision-making.
The Group has also implemented an integrated risk management system for both business opportunities and business execution, and it follows internal control procedures to achieve the success of our corporate strategies and business targets.
