TOKYO, April 6, 2021 – Ricoh Company, Ltd. has established the Ricoh Group's Human Rights Policy in accordance with the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
The Ricoh Group believes that respect for human rights in corporate activities is an essential responsibility for companies, based on the “The Spirit of Three Loves” (Love your neighbor, Love your country, Love your work), the founding principles of the Ricoh Group. Ricoh has been strengthening its stance on human rights by proactively introducing international standards into the Ricoh Group Code of Conduct.
Most recently, in 2019, Ricoh joined the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA), a non-profit coalition that supports the rights and wellbeing of workers and communities affected by the global supply chains. Ricoh promotes its business activities with its suppliers per the RBA Code of Conduct.

International Bill of Human Rights and the International Labour Organization's Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work.
