Ricoh was recently awarded the highest gold rating in the sustainability survey conducted by EcoVadis. This is the fourth consecutive victory for the company.
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. 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.
EcoVadis assesses suppliers from 110 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 within the top 5% of all companies surveyed.
