• Xerox 2018 publishes 2018 Global CSR Report

        • Xerox has published its 2018 Global Corporate Social Responsibility Report detailing the impact of the company’s sustainability efforts across operations in 160 countries.

          Annually Xerox looks at its approach and performance in corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities supporting social, economic and environmental dimensions. This report was prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards, and aligns in part with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) established in 2015.  

          Highlights from this year’s report include:

          • 100% of newly launched eligible Xerox products satisfied the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) and EPA ENERGY STAR eco-labels
          • 100% of products and parts returned by customers at end-of-life, diverted from entering landfills. Instead, we remanufactured, reused, recycled, or provided the waste to suppliers who converted it into an energy source
          • Nine percent of Xerox’s total supplier spend is with small Tier I businesses, minority, woman or veteran-owned businesses
          • Employees provided 91,000 hours to local community involvement projects

          Earlier this year, the company published the first ever 2018 Corporate Social Responsibility Progress Report, a data-driven and evergreen summary of goals and performance in the environment, social and governance categories. The progress report was created to enhance stakeholder communication and provide an easy to use reference that will provide real-time, updated data as well as goals for each category.  

          Xerox is announcing two new sustainability goals: reducing energy use by 25 per cent and also by 2025, reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 25 per cent from the 2016 baseline.

          John Visentin, Vice Chairman and CEO, Xerox said, “Xerox is an iconic company driven by innovation, the smart investments that create the products and services to help our customers be more productive, profitable and sustainable.”

          The Global CSR report focuses on how Xerox is constantly innovating for sustainable services and products to improve productivity through new technologies that connect the physical and digital worlds without adversely affecting the environment, human health and safety. As an example, Xerox launched a program ‘You print one, we’ll plant one’; through a partnership with PrintReleaf, Xerox customers can reduce their overall environmental footprint and help global reforestation.
