Our Approach

Become More Sustainable

Sustainability and workplace productivity shouldn’t be mutually exclusive. Our processes, technology and products, you can take charge over your environmental impact while giving your people the tools they need to do their jobs well.

Our broad portfolio of printers, multifunction devices, AV products, software and services can save paper, reduce energy consumption and keep reusable materials out of landfills. Our products are designed to promote environmental sustainability and distinguish themselves in the productivity benefits they provide. So while you elevate your organization’s sustainability efforts, you can also enhance productivity and even lower your costs.


Our products and services are designed to be both productive and green. Anticipating changes in how people work and designing sustainable products that customers rely on requires sophisticated energy management behind the scenes. Ricoh is building advances in sustainability right into their products. We don’t believe in basing key performance metrics on unrealistic operating conditions. Our products are designed to be environmentally efficient and productive — as they are shipped — with factory default settings.


Many of our current Smart Operation Panel devices encourage sustainable operations even further with an informative user interface. Get an at-a-glance overview of your paper reduction and color reduction efforts right at the MFP. When users can see the impact of their decisions right in front of them, you can motivate your workforce to save even more. You can dive into the details even further with Device Management software. Understand your paper and approximate power consumption and their impact on costs and CO2. Measure changes in environmental impact against your goals with Green Reports and metrics.


Environmental Sustainability can shape the delivery of services across our professional and managed services portfolio. For example, within Managed Document Services engagements and PaperCut solutions, measurements such as green reports, achievement of company sustainability goals and improvement over time can be built into the services program itself from the start — instead of being just an after-thought.


Using resources effectively helps promote a recycling-oriented society and keeps used products out of landfills. Our products are designed so that their content, manufacturing processes, shipping and end-of-life recovery minimize environmental impact. By reusing and recycling materials, we can generate less waste, reduce the demand on our natural resources to create new materials and move toward a zero carbon society.


According to a recent survey, 45% of customers surveyed feel Environmental Sustainability significantly influences their purchasing decisions. With nearly 1 in 2 customers caring enough about sustainability to influence their partnering decisions, there is a growing need for sustainability knowledge and expertise among sales professionals. Lanier is cultivating this expertise with training and resources to help our sales professionals demonstrate sustainability value. We want our customers to share their environmental goals and objectives with us and receive back a range of potential solutions that go beyond the obvious.
