Printer ink firm Ricoh has been awarded 'Prime' status by oekom research for its product reusability and recycling work.

The company was honoured with the accolade after implementing an ambitious programme to reduce the energy consumption of its devices and trying to extend the life of its products.

On top of this, Ricoh has stated that by 2050, it aims to reduce its environmental impact by 87.5 per cent when compared to its levels in 2000.

The head of corporate social responsibility at Ricoh, James Deacon, added: "We are delighted to be independently recognised by oekom research for our activities, and pledge to further our commitment to society and the environment.”

Recently, the ink manufacturer Ricoh released a new A4 desktop printer, which it claims is highly productive, reliable and affordable.

The firm's Aficio SP 4310N is a black-and-white device designed specifically for small offices and workgroups in large organisations.
