Xerox Holdings Corporation has published its 2019 Global Corporate Social Responsibility Report detailing the impact of the company’s sustainability efforts across it operations.
Highlights from this year’s report include:
- Named as one of Forbes’ JUST 100, Barron’s 100 Most Sustainable Companies, and Mediacorp Canada’s Greenest Employers lists.
- Committed to a 25 percent reduction in global energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions by 2025.

“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.
The Global CSR report focuses on how Xerox 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 digitize and process their National Household Census results from January 2017 to February 2019, so they can better deliver resources to populations in need.
Xerox’s 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.
Annually Xerox looks at its approach and performance in corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities supporting social, economic and environmental dimensions. This report was prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards, and aligns in part with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) established in 2015.
