The Ricoh Group provides products and services trusted by its customers for safety and reliability.
Paper is indispensable to the Ricoh Group's business, and the supply chain for paper is diverse. Therefore, to ensure that our customers can use our paper knowing it is properly sourced, we must work together with our suppliers to promote sustainable paper procurement.
In 2023, Ricoh Group established a new Paper Procurement Policy to ensure sustainable paper procurement. This includes “Paper Standards” that consider environmental aspects and “Supplier Standards” that embrace human rights and local operations.
*Ricoh Group promotes environmental management in four areas. In the area of biodiversity conservation, Ricoh Group established its Biodiversity Policy in 2009. In 2010, in consideration of the human rights of local residents and stakeholders, Ricoh Group established “Regulations for Ricoh Group Products Made of Wood (revised in 2021)” to procure legal and sustainable raw materials and promote biodiversity conservation.
Ricoh Group established “paper standards” and “supplier standards” and has adopted these two standards in its Paper Procurement Policy.
● Paper standards（Requirements for procured paper）
● Suppliers standards（Requirements for procurement transactions）
*Target: PPC paper, paper rolls, and Ricoh brand paper
