Ricoh Canada Inc. and WestJet Restore Natural Park Land for the City of Calgary

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - June 23, 2010) - Ricoh Canada Inc., in partnership with WestJet, are working together for the second consecutive year in restoring the natural parklands of Calgary. To offset the estimated 2010 paper usage, both companies will plant a total of 630 trees in the Ricoh-WestJet tree planting day at Carburn Park in Calgary. This marks a 10% increase from the total number of trees planted by Ricoh and WestJet in 2009.

This Ricoh-WestJet tree planting day will see approximately 25 Ricoh and 25 WestJetters actively engaged in the business of driving environmental sustainability, rolling up their sleeves and making a real contribution to the City of Calgary. This combined team of 50 will plant a variety of trees and shrubs native to the Calgary area.

According to Glenn Laverty, President and CEO of Ricoh Canada Inc., "The Ricoh-WestJet tree planting day is a physical demonstration of what corporate social responsibility is all about at Ricoh; talking about sustainability is great, but getting out there and being part of it demonstrates a real commitment. It's no surprise that through the collective efforts of our employees and partners like WestJet, Ricoh has been recognized as one the "Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporation in the World" for the fifth consecutive year by Corporate Knights."

The Ricoh-WestJet tree planting event will begin at 12 p.m., 23 June 2010 at Carburn Park (8925 Riverview Drive SE), with a short presentation followed by a 15-minute walk to Southland Park to commence the tree planting activities. Local media are invited.
