Ricoh awarded highest gold rating in EcoVadis global supplier survey for fourth year running
TOKYO, 15 November 2018 – Ricoh has once again received the highest gold rating in the sustainability survey conducted by EcoVadis. The success marks Ricoh’s retention of the rating for the fourth year in succession.
EcoVadis assesses suppliers from 110 countries and across 150 business sectors on corporate policies, initiatives and achievements in areas concerning the Environment, Labor Practices, Fair Business Practices, and Supply Chain. Ricoh submitted its sustainability data to EcoVadis for evaluation and was ranked within the top 5% of all companies surveyed.
Today, many global companies are eager to improve both their own sustainability record and sustainability in their supply chain. The sustainability performance of suppliers has become an important factor for supplier selection. It is also becoming increasingly common that customers request Ricoh’s sustainability data as part of their supplier selection process and often request the EcoVadis assessment.
Ricoh constantly looks to broaden the value its delivers through business by covering everything from conventional offices through to society at large, thereby helping to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Ricoh recognises this gold rating as a testament to its sustainable activities to achieve the SDGs.
