As part of ASL’s ongoing commitment to minimise the effects of pollution and reduce our customers’ carbon footprint, we only work with partners who share our vision. Below we hear from Ricoh on their committed environmental targets.
Committed Environmental Targets
We have strengthened our 2050 Long-Term Environmental targets with 2030 mid-term environmental impact reduction goals as mileposts. These environmental targets include Energy Conservation and Prevention of Global Warming, Resource Conservation and Recycling, and Pollution Prevention.
Ricoh has set the goal of sourcing 100% renewable electricity worldwide by 2050. Our greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction targets have been recognised as scientifically based targets in line with the Paris Agreement1, which aims to achieve the 2-degree goal.
Environmental Materiality Issues
In addition to the GHG targets in line with the Paris Agreement, Ricoh has identified the environmental materiality issues, which contribute to environmental conservation and generation of prosperity for our customers. Among Ricoh’s materiality issues are the further reduction of new resource inputs in Ricoh products by switching to the raw materials with lower environmental impact, further enhancing product recovery and recycling.
This commitment to environmental materiality issues ensures that Ricoh continues to apply this consideration throughout the product lifecycle.
