Ricoh recognised for sustainability programmes and services

January 9, 2024

Ricoh announced it has been named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape for Worldwide Sustainability Programmes and Services Hardcopy 2023 Vendor Assessment.

This IDC study assesses sustainability programmes and services among global hardcopy vendors and identifies their strengths and challenges.

The IDC MarketScape notes Ricoh’s long-standing commitment to environmental sustainability as a key differentiator determining its Leader position, stating: “Ricoh acknowledged a corporate responsibility to minimise impact on the environment decades ago. In 1976, Ricoh established a company Environmental Promotion Section, and the company remains focused on driving sustainability through its business and operations, while developing innovative technologies to help customers reduce carbon footprint and lessen environmental impact.”

IDC evaluated Ricoh across its business operations, products and business model, business services, corporate strategies, and governance/risk/compliance measures in the context of sustainability with strengths identified in reducing emissions, sustainability across the portfolio, reuse and recycling, and managed print & automation services.

“Throughout our assessment, Ricoh consistently demonstrated a deep-seated commitment to environmental stewardship, evident in its extensive history of prioritising sustainability across its operations,” said Robert Palmer, Research Vice President, Imaging, Printing, and Document Solutions at IDC. “Characterised by an alignment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and a pledge to achieve 100% renewable energy usage by 2050, Ricoh’s actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, promote reuse and recycling among customers, and integrate environmental conservation seamlessly into every facet of its business is notably admirable.”

The IDC MarketScape also notes: “Ricoh’s Managed Print & Automation Services help businesses to optimise print infrastructure to improve efficiency, reduce cost, enhance security, and drive sustainability.” The MarketScape also highlights that “every product it builds or service offering [Ricoh] delivers has features or capabilities supporting sustainable business practices.” Further, the report states: “Ricoh should also be on the short list of vendors when looking for a partner to better enable a hybrid working model. Ricoh has the tools and expertise to help facilitate collaboration, creativity, and productivity for flexible working environments, which can help companies reduce environmental impact.”

“More than 45 years ago, we recognised the importance of preserving Earth’s natural self-recovery capabilities and made a commitment to put the sustainability of our environment at the heart of every business decision of the entire Ricoh Group,” said Mikako Suzuki, Corporate Officer in charge of ESG and Risk Management, Ricoh Company, Ltd. “As a global corporate citizen, we believe the actions we’re taking within a circular economy to create harmony between business and the environment are leading us towards the fulfilment of a truly sustainable and zero-carbon society. We value our Leader position in this IDC MarketScape as acknowledgement of our efforts.”
