RICOH Managing Director, Michael Pollok, arrived in Apia yesterday.
Mr. Pollok is joined by other senior Ricoh executives and RICOH Samoa CEO, Shiv Narayan.
RICOH is a Fortune 500 company, with over 100,000 employees worldwide, and is a market leader in print and document management technology.
Mr. Pollok and his delegation are in Apia for their annual conference.
Samoa was chosen from a range of Pacific countries because of its local commitment to sustainability.
“For Ricoh, taking responsibility for environmental sustainability is not an option – it’s just how we do business - and the environmental initiatives in Samoa are world-class.”
As part of his visit, Mr. Pollok will be meeting with a number of Government agencies and companies about how RICOH can help them become sustainable.
“We’ve seen a lot of excitement in Apia around RICOH’s electronic records management systems,” says Mr. Pollok.
“Climate change is a real concern in small Island states so RICOH’s electronic records management systems can help deliver a paperless office, which is environmentally-friendly and sustainable.”
