Ricoh to Turn off Signage All over the World except 100% Eco-Powered Billboards in New York on June 3

As part of Ricoh Global Eco Action, Ricoh will turn off the lights on all billboards, Ricoh logo signboards and night lighting in the facilities at all Group companies around the world on the night of June 3 two days before June 5, which is United Nations World Environment Day (in Japan, the lights have been switched off since the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami). The 100% eco-powered billboards in New York City will be excluded. The month of June will be named Ricoh Global Eco Action Month, with the aim of widespread, sustained Eco Actions by Ricoh Group employees around the world.

Ricoh Group companies have organized their own Eco Action campaign in each country every year. The activities have become more substantial year by year. Ricoh continues with the Ricoh Global Eco Action expanding its environmental conservation movement from Group employees to their families, friends, business partners and clients.
