These higher energy savings are passed on to customers; while IT optimisation products help everyone in the value chain accumulate savings in time, cost, space, and transport. Environmental consciousness is now embedded in the Fuji Xerox corporate culture and remains one of its 10 shared values.
One of the ways the company is instilling this paradigm shift is to have its teams and stakeholders view production processes not as a linear process, but as a circular economy. This means that precious resources and products should not be treated as garbage to be dumped in landfills, but rather reused, recycled or repurposed. Another way to be more environmentally conscious is for the company’s design teams to re-evaluate the products and services to help with resource and disposal management, while also keeping cost- and energy-saving solutions in mind. The company also introduced a robust sustainable paper procurement and FSC certification programme to ensure that its suppliers are ethical in producing environmental-friendly paper. As an international brand and market leader, Fuji Xerox leads the way in raising awareness of environmental consciousness among its customers and stakeholders through dialogues and collaborations.
In 2003, Fuji Xerox became a signatory to the UN Global Compact; today, Fuji Xerox is one of the 43 LEAD companies globally, and also serves on the Board. A strong advocate in the promotion of the UN’s sustainable development goals (SDGs), Fuji Xerox is actively contributing to these goals. In May 2016, Fuji Xerox Asia Pacific became the first in the industry to become a GRI GOLD community member, committed to help promote sustainability reporting’s impact in empowering business decisions. The company also engage with ICT companies to address environmental issues and share best practices.
With more than 45,000 employees globally, Fuji Xerox is in a good position to inculcate environmental consciousness, not only internally and within its corporate culture, but throughout geographies and communities where its teams live and work.
