Third-party verification of environmental data
The Ricoh Group's major environmental performance data, including Greenhouse Gas emissions (Scope 1, 2 and 3), is subject to independent verification by Bureau Veritas Japan Co., Ltd., a third-party audit provider, as a way of enhancing the credibility of the data. Audit results are posted on our website for easy access by our stakeholders.
For fiscal 2012 reporting, verification was conducted on information systems, methods of data collection, compilation and analysis, as well as data accuracy.
We will work continually to enhance our data credibility through the use of third-party verification services, thereby raising the quality of our environmental activities.
