TORONTO, Oct. 13, 2016 /CNW/ - Ricoh Canada employees are once again rolling up their sleeves and heading out to local parks, rivers and lakes to take part in another Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup (GCSC). GCSC is a national program that empowers partners take an active role in protecting the natural environments in Canada. As part of the GCSC efforts, team Ricoh is part of the largest direct action environmental program in Canada.
Official partners of the GCSC since 2014, Ricoh Canada employees have already diverted over 6,294 pounds of garbage from lakes, ponds, shorelines and parks across Canada. It's an important contribution to the communities where Ricoh employees live and work, and one that is embraced by the team at Ricoh Canada. "The GCSC events are part of a nationwide activity for us," said Eric Fletcher, VP of Marketing at Ricoh Canada Inc. "Respect for the environment and taking active steps to protect it is in clear alignment with the corporation's sustainability goals, but it's also great fun to get out and make a difference with the teams."
Ricoh Canada participates in Shoreline Cleanups twice a year in the spring and fall, with an average of 300 employees contributing their time to each event. 19 offices are participating this fall, with many of Ricoh's customers also being encouraged to come out and join the effort.
Most of Ricoh Canada's national cleanup events will be taking place on October 13th.
