Ricoh Receives EcoVadis’ Highest Gold Rating

1003

EcoVadis, the French CSR performance monitoring agency, has awarded Ricoh its highest gold rating in a sustainability survey it conducted.
 
EcoVadis assesses suppliers from 99 countries and across 150 business sectors on corporate policies, initiatives and achievements in areas concerning the environment, labour practices, fair business practices and supply chain. Ricoh submitted its sustainability data to EcoVadis for evaluation and was ranked in the top 10% of all companies surveyed.
 
Many global companies are eager to improve both their own sustainability record, and sustainability in their supply chain as well. In fact, the sustainability performance of suppliers has become an important factor for supplier selection.
 
Jacques van Wyk, COO at Ricoh SA said, ‘Our customers increasingly request our sustainability credentials as part of their supplier selection process.’
