President and CEO
Ricoh's mission is to provide excellence that improves life and drives sustainability. This commitment is in line with the Ricoh Way and the Spirit of Three Loves, the founding principles of Kiyoshi Ichimura.
We have also dedicated ourselves to making work more creative. We are expanding our reach beyond conventional offices to workplaces across industries. We are connecting them all digitally and transforming entire workflows to help customers be more productive. We will leverage digital data to create value that exceeds customer expectations. We said committed in the previous sentence. Reverting to dedicated to avoid needless repetition.
We aim to become a digital services company to address dramatic changes in how people live and work. That is why we have made Fulfillment through Work the centerpiece of our vision for 2036, our centennial year. We want to go beyond helping customers streamline tasks and enhance productivity by empowering people to find their jobs satisfying and reach their potential.
We pursue sustainability through a Three Ps Balance—Prosperity (economic activities), People (society), and Planet (environment). We accordingly strive to solve social problems through business, strengthen our operational underpinnings, and contribute to society while striving to reach the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals. We thereby aim to become the preferred choice for all our stakeholders, including our employees, customers, business partners, and shareholders.
