Ricoh and Konica Minolta have been listed as 2023 Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the world.
Ricoh has been rated as one of the Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the world. This marks the 11th selection for Ricoh, which was selected for 10 consecutive years from 2005 to 2014.
The Global 100 is an annual ranking of the world’s most sustainable corporations published by Canada-based Corporate Knights. The assessment is executed across key indicators, including environmental, social, and governance performance, % sustainable revenue, % sustainable investment, climate-related lobbying activities, and sustainability-linked pay. The assessment results are announced each year during the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland.
Jake Yamashita, President and CEO, said: “In 2020, we positioned ESG initiatives as future financial targets, one of the dual companywide management targets along with regular financial goals. This ranking is a testament to Ricoh’s continuous and accelerated commitment to sustainability, such as incorporating ESG indicators into our executive compensation and actively lobbying for climate change action by joining the conversation on renewable energy with the Japanese government.”
Konica Minolta’s inclusion on this prestigious list will mark the sixth time and the fifth year in a row, following 2011 and 2019-2022.
Since its integration in 2003, Konica Minolta said it has placed “sustainability” at the core of its management, and has continued to deliver products and solutions to address social and environmental issues focusing on the SDGs, by offering energy-efficient products to reduce CO2 emissions at customers’ sites as well as by helping customers transform their production processes and promote workstyle reform.
Konica Minolta added that it will continue to take on the challenge of innovation that can promote both the growth of its business and the creation of new value for the global environment and all of human society.
