Our approach to Sustainability

In 2003, Fuji Xerox Australia implemented the Environmental Management System (EMS) in its offices and local operations. In the same year, it obtained ISO 14001 from the Japan Audit and Certification Organization (JACO). The EMS aims to improve the resource efficiency of our business practices and to reduce the adverse impact we have on the environment.
Annually, top management set the environmental targets based on the framework and make sure they are communicated to respective departments staff.
