Our CommitmentFuji Xerox New Zealand, and the people who are proud to work here, are invested in minimising our impact on the environment.
We’re determined to make the world a better place, and we stand alongside some of New Zealand’s most successful and inspirational organisations in declaring our commitment to being part of a low-carbon economy.
Our sustainability strategy represents a balanced, long-term approach to economic activity, environmental responsibility and social progress, supported by sound corporate governance.
Fuji Xerox addresses sustainability at each step of the value chain: from raw materials and parts procurement, to our development and manufacturing operations, to the customer use of our products, and finally, to the disposal of our products at end-of-life.
We also actively support our customers’ sustainability efforts. Our investment in digital transformation technology helps to reduce their reliance on paper, and their energy consumption. We enable our customers to share information without creating an inefficient trail of documents and manual delivery processes.
Our community initiatives include:
• School programmes: We provide opportunities for schoolchildren to participate in a range of sport and leadership programmes to enhance their education and realise their full potential.
• Scholarships: We partner with some of New Zealand’s leading universities to offer scholarships and financial support to help students achieve their higher education goals.
• Sponsorships: We support a diverse range of organisations across the arts, sport, community and education.
In 2002, Fuji Xerox became a signatory to the UN Global Compact, and in 2008 we signed the Global Compact CEO Statement. In 2015, when the UN General Assembly adopted 17 new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), their goals became our goals.
Goal to be Net Zero Carbon by 2030
To ensure we are doing our bit, we aim to align our business behind the challenge of being net zero carbon by 2030. This will require establishing science based targets consistent with keeping within 1.5°C of warming, publicly reporting on our greenhouse gas emissions, and working with our customers and suppliers to help them reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. For more information on our Net zero Carbon goal, see our GRI report here.
• We hold ISO 14001 certification, the very highest standard of environmental responsibility.
• We’ve been awarded the Environmental Choice New Zealand eco-label seal of approval in recognition of our commitment to the environment.
• Our new Auckland National Office is a Green Star 4 facility, meaning best practice was applied to the design, build and fit out.
Respect for human rights and non-discrimination is deeply embedded in the Fuji Xerox Code of Conduct. The Fujifilm Group Charter for Corporate Behaviour identifies "respect for basic human rights" as the fundamental spirit guiding the activities of the Fujifilm Group.
Every year, Fuji Xerox conducts educational courses on the Code of Conduct for all our employees and those of our affiliates. This is combined with training on such topics as human rights in general, sexual harassment, power harassment, and supporting good mental health.
Code of Conduct education is also provided in programmes that target specific strata of the company, such as new employees and newly-appointed managers. We also raise human rights awareness through communications, including a human rights-specific bulletin to executive general managers twice a year.
Fuji Xerox endeavours to prevent our global supply chain and overseas suppliers from committing human rights violations, such as child and forced labour. We require compliance in ethical procurement and carry out through, rigorous evaluations.
We adhere to the guidelines within the EICC Code of Conduct which is committed to supporting the rights and well-being of workers and communities affected by the global electronics supply chain.
We have a clear governance structure for sustainability: our Sustainability Department reports to the Chief Operating Officer and ultimately the Managing Director. Responsibility for sustainability performance is owned across our business.
