Carbon Neutral Adelaide gives Fuji Xerox Australia the opportunity to engage with like-minded organisations and the local community to address climate change and contribute to a sustainable, prosperous low carbon economy.
Fuji Xerox Australia has a long-standing commitment to sustainable development environmentally, socially and economically. Led by Fuji Xerox Co Ltd, a United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) LEAD company since 2010 and a signatory to the UNGC since 2002, sustainability is fundamental to Fuji Xerox Australia’s values, incorporated into the code of conduct and presented to suppliers as a key requirement for ethical procurement.
As a founding partner of Carbon Neutral Adelaide, Fuji Xerox will develop and communicate a localised carbon reduction plan to identify opportunities for alignment to the five action pathways.
Fuji Xerox Australia addresses sustainability across the value chain, from the extensive supply chain, the development of solutions and services for customers to the in-use phase and end-of-life product management. Sustainability is embedded across the organisation, from financial aspects in decision making to the people and environmental impacts of operations.
For the first time in 2014/15, Fuji Xerox Australia set a target of a 10% reduction in carbon emissions - and achieved 12%. In 2015/16, the target was again a 10 percent reduction, and 4% was achieved. These reductions were driven by consolidating real estate, site refurbishments and maintenance to improve energy efficiency, and transitioning to more energy efficient vehicles. In 2016, Fuji Xerox Australia has set a long-term target of a 30% reduction in Scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions by 2020 based on 2005 levels, with an initial 5% reduction in 2016.
