Jake Yamashita named keynote speaker for event focused on how to mobilize global business to deliver climate action

TOKYO, September 21, 2022 – Ricoh Company, Ltd. today announced that its President and CEO, Jake Yamashita, will deliver a keynote address titled “Empowering employees to be ESG Advocates,” at Reuters IMPACT 2022. 

Live streamed from London on October 3, Mr. Yamashita will discuss the many ways Ricoh is taking action against climate change through its own business to materialize the vision of “Fulfillment through Work”, while keeping with the Spirit of Three Loves (Love your neighbor, Love your country, Love your work), our founding principles. He will also share his vision for engaging and inspiring employees across the globe to support customers and how this serves to benefit the wider ESG agenda.

Hosted by the global information and news provider, Reuters IMPACT brings together world leaders, big business C-Suite, and forward-thinking pioneers to inspire, drive action and accelerate innovation towards the greatest challenge of our generation: the climate emergency. The Reuters IMPACT agenda is built upon six central themes: Energy, Finance, Agriculture & Biodiversity, Built Environment, Supply Chains & Transportation, and Society & Justice. Ricoh was invited to participate in this event primarily due its achievements and long history of tackling environmental issues.

“We are firmly in an era where employee support for the ESG agenda has moved from merely being encouraged to being indispensable,” said Mr. Yamashita. “I believe that it is employees themselves that can make the difference. Events such as Reuters IMPACT are essential in highlighting the need to help employees understand how their daily work supports the agenda and where it can drive innovation for the benefit of all. When people find fulfillment through their work, it releases an abundance of creativity. Elevating creativity enables people to think beyond their day-to-day tasks and consider how their work is connected to the environment and society. I look forward to bringing this vision to life during the event and sharing first-hand experiences of how it benefits employees and customers.”
