Ricoh launches 14th annual Eco Action Day

Ricoh launches 14th annual Eco Action Day

April 6, 2020

The company pledges to tackle key sustainability issues in the areas of energy use, climate action, and responsible consumption.

Ricoh Asia Pacific launched its 14th annual Eco Action Day campaign. Scheduled to run from 1 April to 5 June 2020, this year’s campaign tackles Goals 7, 12 and 13 of the United Nations’ (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – namely Affordable and Clean Energy, Responsible Consumption and Production, and Climate Action.

Ricoh explained that key activities of this year’s campaign include a dialogue session, pledge campaign, and a seed distribution drive to encourage Singaporeans to think and act in support of our environment. To mark its commitment to the campaign, Ricoh will also equip its new Singapore headquarters, set to launch in May, with several energy efficient features that will better contribute to the circular economy.

“Every year, Ricoh identifies different SDGs that we think are key to a greener and brighter future”, said Mr Yuji Hiruma, Director and Senior General Manager, Digital Workplace Marketing Division, Ricoh Asia Pacific. “This year, we’re excited to bring the issues of energy, climate, and consumption to the forefront together with partners such as Mitsubishi Electric Asia and Singapore Pools and contribute more strongly to peace and prosperity for people and the planet now and beyond.”

“With climate change, it is imperative that we put sustainability at the centre of everything we do. All of us can and should play a part. Ricoh’s initiatives to encourage corporates, schools and individuals to take action are heartening. I hope these efforts will inspire others to step forward to be climate game changers,” said Ms Selina Lim, Director, Communications and 3P Partnership Division, Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources (MEWR).

Clean energy is a growing topic of interest in Singapore and Asia Pacific. Just last year, the Singapore government announced plans to produce enough solar energy to meet at least 10% of peak daily electricity demand by 2030. This year during the Budget 2020, Singapore also announced plans to halve 2030 peak greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, and phase out all fossil fuel vehicles within the next two decades.

Eco Action Day is a national public awareness campaign organised by Ricoh since 2007, in partnership with key NGO, government, and private sector partners in Singapore. It is held in June every year to commemorate the United Nations Environment Programme’s World Environment Day, which seeks to raise global awareness on the need to take positive action for the environment. Every year, Ricoh, along with various supporting partners, engages its employees, customers, corporate neighbours and government organizations and the wider public to take steps to reduce their impact on the environment.

To date, more than 1,500 organisations, including multinational corporations, government agencies, private companies, and tertiary institutions have participated in Eco Action Day.
