In the survey conducted by EcoVadis, Ricoh was also ranked in the top 5% of all companies surveyed. Ricoh has retained the highest standard gold rating three times in a row at the survey.
EcoVadis assesses suppliers from 110 countries and across 150 business sectors – on corporate policies, initiatives and achievements concerning the Environment, Labour Practices, Fair Business Practices, and Supply Chain.
The survey is used by over 30,000 companies to reduce risk, drive innovation, and foster transparency and trust between trading partners. Today, many global companies are eager to improve both their own sustainability record, and sustainability in their supply chain as well. In fact the sustainability performance of suppliers has become an important factor for supplier selection.
Ricoh recognises this gold rating as a testament to our sustainable activities. We will proactively make efforts to improve sustainability, thereby consistently meeting the expectations of all stakeholders through achieving business growth and boosting corporate value.
