Ricoh has been commended for its strong global Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activity as part of the FTSE4Good Index Series. The success forms continuous recognition dating back to 2004.
Created by the global index company FTSE Group, FTSE4Good is an equity index series designed to aid investment in companies that meet globally recognised corporate responsibility standards. Using a market consultation process, the criteria are regularly revised to ensure they continue to reflect standards of responsible business practice, and developments in socially responsible investment as they evolve.
Javier Diez-Aguirre, Vice President, Corporate Marketing, CSR & Environment, Ricoh Europe said, "as a collective society we face a number of challenges that have the potential to impact nature, the economy and the global environment. Ricoh possesses a wide range of global resources and supports activities that set out to address these complicated social concerns while ensuring corporate growth."
In April this year Ricoh also announced its environmental goals to achieve zero greenhouse gas emissions and use 100 per cent renewable energy by 2050.
Javier added, "while we have received FTSE4Good Index Series recognition continuously since 2004, we’ve been championing sustainable environmental management and CSR since our formation over 80 years ago. This long term commitment is reflected in our goals for 2050, as well as our work supporting customers to reduce their own environmental impact.”
