Ricoh Way

A global corporate philosophy

Our guiding principles and management philosophies are the cornerstone of how we do business – Ricoh Way. In a world where business and technology move fast, our decision-making is underpinned by a clear framework that puts people first.

  • The three loves

    Love your neighbour, love your country, love your work

    Our guiding principles were formed in 1946 by our founder Kiyoshi Ichimura. They reflect how and why we do business and our commitment to wellbeing in our families, staff, customers and the world we live in.

  • A better world

    Imagine a better world. At Ricoh, we work towards it everyday. Our vision to be a trusted global brand unites us to care for people, our work, our society and our planet.

    A better world is also about simplifying your life and work. Functional, efficient products and services don’t just build businesses, they make your everyday life easier.

  • How our values get us there

Our values keep us focused on our customers – adding value, continuously improving and innovating to make their day and exceed expectations.
