A proud week for Xerox as they are named on a prestigious climate change leadership index that lists only the top ten percent of companies.
International environmental organisation, CDP, have named Xerox as a leader in providing reliable information about carbon emissions and energy use to investors and the global marketplace. Xerox scored 99 out of 100 which led them to be named on the S&P Climate Disclosure Leadership Index.
News comes as national leaders meet in Paris to reduce carbon emissions with a global deal at COP21, the UN’s climate change conference. Paul Dickinson, executive chairman and co-founder of CDP, said, “as the world looks beyond the Paris climate change negotiations and prepares for a low carbon future, reliable information about how companies are responding to the transition will be ever more valuable.”
Xerox will now benefit from being seen as a company that will lead to a more sustainable world and as well as meeting the FTSE4Good criteria for an eighth year in a row, they even signed a climate change pledge at he White House.
Diane O’Connor, VP for Xerox Environment, Health, Safety and Sustainability, said “Xerox has a history of sustainability and continues to incorporate sustainability into its business strategy and communicate the measurable benefits it brings to the environment, our customers and society.”
