During the 7th Annual Global CSR Summit and Awards 2015, Ricoh Asia Pacific Pte Ltd was the winner of the Gold Product Excellence Award. The award is regarded as Asia’s most prestigious recognition for Corporate Social Responsibility, and it recognises companies for outstanding, innovative and world-class products, services, projects and programmes implemented in the year 2014-15.
Ricoh Asia Pacific was recognised for its product solutions and services that integrate Unified Communication System (UCS), Interactive White Board (IWB), Ultra Short Throw Projector and RICOH Smart Presenter application, to facilitate global conferences to be organised in a low carbon footprint environment. Each product in its own unique points creates positive impact to the environment by reducing the paper and energy consumption, which in turn leads to lower CO emission.
Delighted with this continuous recognition from last year, the Managing Director of Ricoh Asia Pacific and China, Mr. Nobuaki Majima, said – “Ricoh is constantly providing new value for working people and mapping out how office of the future supposed to be. The integration of our products and solutions is yet another approach we are heading to create shared value between business and society to achieve a low carbon footprint environment.”
Some significant examples of a sustainable conference are the Annual Meetings of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank Group in Tokyo which took place in October 2012, and the 8th APEC Transportation Ministerial Meeting in Tokyo in September 2013. Ricoh integrated its technologies, solutions and services into a low carbon footprint environment through the followings: (1) The multi-projection system showing dynamic images on 3.84m large wide screen, using multiple projectors connected together, (2) The virtual help desk combining a small footprint through which operator provided guidance for visitors, using the unified communication system, (3) The digital signage using the ultra short throw projectors which distributed various information of the annual meetings and (4) The development and support of an environment for enabling paperless seminar sessions through its software and application – Smart Presenter application and a document download service through Ricoh’s new cloud service, Clickable Paper.
