Environmental, Social & Governance

“Any company that doesn’t contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be ignored by the market, and will go out of business. Companies in the future will be evaluated not just by their financial performance, but also their contribution to addressing these social challenges.”

Jake Yamashita, CEO, Ricoh

CEO Message for Sustainability

Ricoh CEOThe Ricoh Group's mission is to pursue excellence, improving the quality of life and driving sustainability based on the Spirit of Three Loves, a dedication to people, one's country, and a passion for work that constituted the founding principles of Kiyoshi Ichimura.

It is in keeping with those tenets and our embrace of the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that we are accelerating our drive to help materialize sustainability for societies around the world. I believe that helping to resolve social issues through business is vital to corporate prosperity. Companies that fail to help bring SDGs to fruition can never survive. We will accordingly endeavor to enhance our businesses and management from financial and from environmental, social, and governance perspectives.

We have identified seven material issues — key social challenges — for attaining SDGs through our operations. We hope to become essential to each and every stakeholder, from employees and customers to business partners and investors, by contributing to better tomorrows in the communities around the globe that we are privileged to serve.

Ricoh Group has established 7 Material Issues based on contributions to the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals. These are: 
  • Creativity from Work
  • Quality Of Life (QOL) Enhancement 
  • Zero-Carbon Society
  • Circular Economy
  • Stakeholder Engagement
  • Open Innovation
  • Diversity & Inclusion

These goals aim to create new markets and value propositions by looking broadly at social issues, and taking on the challenge to resolve them while simultaneously achieving Ricoh's own business growth targets.
