“At Ricoh, we conduct business not only after profitability but also in consideration of the glaring relevant social issues that we face. We’re very hopeful that this year’s Global Eco Action activities and our Scholastical Recognition & Awards will continue to educate not only our employees but also our consumers, and ultimately motivate them to think and act for the environment.” ~Eric Sulit, Ricoh Philippines, Inc.

Participants included Ricoh employees, their children, and other volunteers.
