Tokyo, November 29, 2013 – Ricoh today released the Ricoh Group Sustainability Report 2013.
The Ricoh Group Sustainability Report 2013 is a single, integrated report on our business activities from three perspectives, finance, social, and the environment. With this report, Ricoh aims to address its stakeholders’ need to have information on corporate social responsibility, such as the environment, governance, corporate citizenship, human rights and diversity, in addition to financial data, so as to appraise the company and acquire an overview of the Group entirely.
Guided by The RICOH Way, the foundation of all corporate activities, we are committed to delivering new value to customers and society. This year’s report focuses on “current core business aiming to create value for our customers” and “enhancing corporate value through sustainable environmental management” which are basis of Ricoh activities that suit new business paradigms and workstyle evolution while clarifying risks and opportunities of transformation in the society.
Ricoh aims to introduce the Group’s policies, strategies and the concepts that underpin them to help its stakeholders deepen their understanding of the Group’s business. To achieve this objective, Ricoh worked to expand and improve disclosure items, utilizing guidelines such as ISO 26000, an international standard for corporate social responsibility, and the Communication on Progress (COP) policy of the United Nations Global Compact. Ricoh also emphasizes intelligibility, and specialized information on its website to supplement the Sustainability Report 2013.
The Ricoh Group Sustainability Report 2013 is available on our website, PDF and digital book format, the latter being the best suited for viewing on tablet devices.
