By Wendi Latko, vice president of Environment, Health, Safety & Sustainability for Xerox
So far as Xerox is concerned, nothing has changed with the Paris Climate Agreement. Our company is committed to long-standing values of corporate citizenship and recognizing our social, environmental and economic responsibilities to customers, employees and society. This commitment does not waver. Our sustainability goals often exceed regulatory requirements.

We will continue to uphold our policies, programs and goals for reducing energy use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from our operations. Additionally, we design innovative products and solutions that enable our customers to do the same. We are a company that:
- Voluntarily prohibited Ozone Depleting Substances from our supply chain years ahead of any regulatory requirement.
- Was a charter member of the Energy Star program in the early 1990’s.
- Has had a greenhouse gas reduction program in place since 2003. (See how much we’ve lowered our GHG emissions.)
None of this is a secret. Our work as a good corporate citizen has been noticed (and applauded) by several organizations, including:
- Corporate Responsibility Magazine, one of North America’s leading voices on corporate responsibility, has placed Xerox on its “100 Best Corporate Citizens List.”
- EcoVadis, a global supplier sustainability ratings group, recognized Xerox with its gold recognition level in sustainability performance for the eighth consecutive year.
We are led by science, our respect for the environment, human health and safety, and satisfying our customers. It’s something we should all feel proud of.
