Sustainability tools and products
Our tools help customers to monitor and reduce their environmental impact.
Track your carbon footprint
Ricoh's @Remote Green Reports allow users to track trends and report performance in energy and paper use across their print fleet to promote sustainability and cost effectiveness.
The @Remote system collects environmental data from Ricoh networked printers and MFPs at multiple locations, and securely transmits the information to a Ricoh data centre.
Ricoh's Green Calculator starts with an estimate of your existing energy consumption across Ricoh and non-Ricoh devices. These are compared against new device options using typical electricity consumption (TEC) values – an independent energy usage indicator method developed by Energy Star. You can choose to display the values as:
- kWh's of power consumed
- CO2 emissions
- electricity cost
- how many trees that need to be planted to offset CO2 emissions
Sustainable products and services
Our product design, strategic sourcing and manufacturing are all optimised for sustainability and reducing CO2 emissions.
Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) identifies the environmental impact across the lifecycle of a product, from raw materials to disposal.
Using LCA-based design, we set targets to reduce the environmental impact of our products. This can be as simple as designing products to be smaller and lighter to conserve resources.
Setting a green procurement framework for raw materials, parts and products ensures we work with suppliers who meet strict standards and help reduce the environmental impact of our products.
We’re continuing to work to reduce environmentally sensitive substances used in our products, and have established a Chemical Management System to comply with the REACH regulatory framework.
We developed the RICO2RET system to minimise the environmental impact of our products. The system quickly identifies processes with high CO2 emissions and how to reduce them. For example, we developed a tin-free, low temperature fixing eco-toner with less environmental impact in the production process, called PxP toner. By fusing at lower temperatures, the PxP devices consume less energy without compromising print quality.
We are empowering digital workplaces.
Our experience and cutting edge technologies improve productivity and collaboration.
