Ricoh Asia Pacific Pte Ltd organised the annual tree planting event at Fort Canning Park on October 22, 2016. This event marked the twelfth year of Ricoh participating in ‘Clean and Green Singapore’ initiative, co-organised by the National Environment Agency (NEA), Community Development Councils (CDCs), Public Utilities Board (PUB) and National Parks Board (NParks) for the community.
“The Spice Garden at Fort Canning Park is Singapore’s first experimental and botanical garden that was established in 1822 by Sir Stamford Raffles, the ‘founder’ of Singapore. It has over 100 varieties of plants and trees lining its trails which give insight into the culture and traditions of the people where local spices and herbs are extensively used for traditional food and healing remedies in South East Asia.
Ricoh has been committed to sustainable environmental management since 1970s. This commitment is put into practice throughout the product life cycle from product design, production, marketing activities and customer services to end-of-life product. With its concept of ‘value-creating CSR’, Ricoh conducts collaborative activities with stakeholders to become an integral part of the solutions for social issues.
Ricoh developed a new slogan aimed at encouraging all employees to make concerted efforts to embrace sustainability – ‘Driving Sustainability for Our Future’. It was developed to reflect our strong commitment to contributing to the creation of a sustainable society by creating and providing new value through our business operations. Inspired by this slogan, Ricoh will proactively work to increase sustainability, thereby achieving the growth of its businesses, boosting its corporate value, and consistently meeting the expectations of all stakeholders.
