It is held on 5 June every year, to commemorate the United Nations Environment Programmes World Environment Day, which seeks to raise global awareness on the need to take positive action for the environment.
Given the long operating hours of offices, implementing these green practices could have a significant impact on reducing resource consumption in Singapore. While the campaign calls on participants to carry out these pledges all year round, Ricoh also tracks the energy savings and carbon reductions achieved by specific pledges on World Environment Day each year.
Every year, Ricoh, along with various supporting partners, engages its employees, customers, corporate neighbours and government organisations to rethink their actions in the workplace, and take steps to reduce their impact on the environment.
Eco Action Day focuses on ways to conserve energy and resources within the office and beyond. To date, more than 700 organisations, including multinational corporations, government agencies, private companies and tertiary institutions have participated in Eco Action Day.
