TOKYO, December 12, 2022 – Ricoh today announced that it has been selected for inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World Index), one of the world's most renowned indices for ESG (environmental, social, and governance), for the third consecutive year.
DJSI, compiled by Dow Jones & Company and sustainability investment research firm S&P Global, was the first global sustainability index to assess a company's corporate sustainability from the economic, environmental, and social development perspectives.
DJSI reviewed approximately 3,500 companies worldwide, selecting 332 companies to the DJSI World Index this year. Among 36 companies in the Computers & Peripherals and Office Electronics industry, Ricoh obtained the top score* in the following seven categories: Materiality, Business Ethics, Environmental Reporting, Environmental Policy & Management Systems, Social Reporting, Talent Attraction & Retention, and Corporate Citizenship & Social Contribution.
In addition to the DJSI World Index, the DJSI Asia/Pacific Index has included Ricoh for the last five consecutive years.
Ricoh's approach to sustainability is to pursue a sustainable society through a Three Ps Balance – Prosperity (economic), People (society), and Planet (environment). To realize this desired society, Ricoh has identified seven material issues in two areas, “Resolving social issues through business,” and “Robust management infrastructure,” and set 17 ESG targets in linkage with the material to work toward solving these issues. Ricoh will continue to contribute to solving social issues and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals through its business activities.
