Our 2016 Global Citizenship Report demonstrates the progress Xerox is making to responsibly provide technology and business process services while helping clients and communities address the world’s greatest challenges.
Key accomplishments in the 2015 fiscal year include:
- Putting Customers First: By putting customers first, Xerox became the #1 worldwide revenue market share leader for Document Technology. Xerox is one of the world’s top innovators in benefit of its customers. Combined with its joint research partner, Fuji Xerox, Xerox researchers received about 1,550 patents and for the eighth straight year the company was named as a market leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Managed Print and Content Services.
- Doing Good Business: Named to “100 Best Corporate Citizens” by Corporate Responsibility Magazine
- Diversity and Evolving the Workplace: In the U.S., 60 percent of Xerox’s employees are women, and women represent 32 percent of executive and senior-level managers. Minorities represent 48 percent of employees and 15 percent of executive and senior-level managers in the U.S.
- Preserving the Planet: We reduced energy consumption by 12 percent and cut emissions by 20 percent — that is 65,000 tons of carbon dioxide equivalents (CO2e) across worldwide sites.
- Caring for Communities: More than 2,500 non-profit organizations, colleges and universities received direct financial support from The Xerox Foundation through grants, matching gifts or community involvement activities.
Social responsibility will be central theme for Xerox and Conduent after the companies separate. http://ctt.ec/8c_cl+
Social Responsibility will continue to be a central theme for both Xerox and Conduent. After the companies separate, they will carry forward our values and culture that include a steadfast commitment to integrity, innovation, sustainability and community.
The report also points out the many ways we use technology to help our customers reduce their carbon footprint. One example, CompleteView™ Pro, is a tool in the managed print assessment process that analyzes printing use and costs. Using data analytics, the tool helps businesses better understand the environmental impact of print output such as power consumption and CO2 emissions by device and site.
Efforts inside the company include the use of energy-efficient technologies such as Emulsion Aggregation (EA) toner, which requires 30 to 35 percent less energy per pound to manufacture. We also use renewable energy sources to power facilities and engage in energy management and equipment upgrades such as utilizing outdoor pipes to cool process water in winter months.
Xerox is a charter partner of the ENERGY STAR® program; in fact, 100 percent of all new eligible product introductions meet ENERGY STAR® 2.0 requirements for Imaging Equipment.
