Zero Waste To Landfill
Zero Waste to Landfill activities are carried out at Ricoh's sites all over the world.
The Ricoh Group defines Zero Waste to Landfill as a 100% resource recovery rate, or no waste used as landfill. Zero Waste to Landfill was achieved at its major production sites in Japan in March 2001 and at production sites outside of Japan in March 2002. Thus, the Group achieved Zero Waste to Landfill at all its major global production sites.
Since then, these activities have been promoted at non-production sites both at home and abroad. At sites that have already achieved Zero Waste to Landfill, efforts are being made to raise the level of Zero Waste to Landfill, including controlling the volume generated and the conversion of waste into useful materials, under the concepts of sustainable environmental management.
