Towards

Towards a Sustainable Future

A balanced, proactive approach.

Our Commitment

Fuji 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.

Commitments

We invest over $1m annually in the local community through sponsorships, partnerships and running leadership programmes for New Zealand youth. 

Our community initiatives include:

• The Fuji Xerox Next Generation Leaders: Our flagship programme. Developed in partnership with the Sir Peter Blake Trust, every year NGL takes 30 high-achieving secondary school students on an inspiring journey. We invite notable community and business leaders to join us in motivating the students to think about how they can become tomorrow’s leaders. Over 105 students have graduated from this programme.
• Inspire:  Packing the essence of NGL into a one-day event for 350 secondary school students in Auckland. Inspire is held annually in conjunction with The Sir Peter Blake Trust’s Leadership Week and Red Socks Day. It features a line-up of motivational speakers and is hosted by one of our customers, the Auckland University of Technology (AUT). Over 600 secondary school students and more than 50 partner schools have been through this programme.
• Sponsorships: We support a diverse range of initiatives and are proudly partnered with the following organisations:
 
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.

We are a Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) GOLD member. This puts us at the heart of a collaborative community that shapes the future of sustainability and reporting, and empowers decision-making towards a more sustainable economy and world.

We are also the first company in the New Zealand print industry to have a Product Stewardship Scheme accredited by the Ministry for the Environment. We are one of only 14 companies accredited nationwide. 

• Over 99.7% of our end-of-life products are recycled and reused year-on-year.
• We have a 100% take-back recycling policy for used equipment (including third-party equipment).
• We divert over 1,200 tonnes of branded equipment and consumables away from landfills each year.
• 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. 
Fuji Xerox is committed to raising awareness of human rights and preventing human rights violations. 

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. 
Fuji Xerox adhere to the sustainability principles of integrity, inclusivity, transparency and stewardship, as reflected in our Team Charter. This means we commit to ethical and transparent business practices. 

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.
