Highlights from this year’s report include that Xerox was named as one of Forbes’ JUST 100, Barron’s 100 Most Sustainable Companies, and Mediacorp Canada’s Greenest Employers lists. The company also committed to a 25 percent reduction in global energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions by 2025, achieved 100 percent ENERGY STAR eco-labels for all Xerox’s new eligible product introductions and diverted nearly 100 percent of leased Xerox equipment from landfills and optimised end-of-life processing.
“For the past 113 years, Xerox has been committed to creating value for business and society and has played an important role in progressing our society globally. We are 100 percent committed to raising the bar on our ourselves in the important quest of building and maintaining a healthy and balanced world that meets society’s evolving needs,” said John Visentin, Vice Chairman and CEO, Xerox.
Xerox stated that its Global CSR report focuses on how the company is engineering solutions that are making a more sustainable world in unexpected ways. A recent example is the work Xerox did with the Bangladeshi government to digitise and process their National Household Census results from January 2017 to February 2019, so they can better deliver resources to populations in need, Xerox explained.
The company added that its Intelligent Workplace Services, a new offering that transcends Managed Print Services, also helps companies reduce their reliance on paper by providing digital alternatives, print authentication, and analytics along with gamification techniques. Intelligent Workplace Services clients can opt in to Xerox’s PrintReleaf offering, which is akin to a carbon offset program. Through its partnership with PrintReleaf Xerox said it has planted more than 100,000 trees.
