MISSISSAUGA, ON, June 14, 2018 /CNW/ - Ricoh Canada, Inc. is working with the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup to help clean the shorelines, lakes and parks across Canada on June 14. Through this partnership, Ricoh has already succeeded in diverting over 8,200 pounds of litter.
This activity is part of the global initiative "Ricoh Global Eco Action" announced by the company earlier this month. "Ricoh Global Eco Action" 2018 encourages its employees to think about the environment and take eco actions, and Ricoh will conduct a number of special events around the world. "Ricoh Global Eco Action" began in 2006, and is organized annually. This year marks the event's 13th year. Under this initiative, Ricoh has implemented a broad spectrum of common global activities as well as local initiatives tailored to suit the distinct features of each area, thereby inspiring a greater number of people to join in the global eco action.
Throughout June, a wide range of stakeholders – from employee groups, their family members and friends, local communities, residents and business partners – will participate in a variety of planned activities that share a common commitment to the environment. The Ricoh Eco Action campaign has cleanups scheduled in over 15 communities across Canada.
Ricoh's EcoAction initiative is just one of many ongoing campaigns the company is involved in to help make consideration for the environment a central element of how the company, and its employees, go about their daily tasks.
