We believe our business should be good for society at large and support the communities in which we operate. Fuji Xerox Co Ltd has determined two community focus areas for our business to concentrate our efforts – supporting education for future generations and the conservation of diminishing cultures and information. These were determined by taking into account significant societal issues, our company goals, and the nature of our business.

In line with the focus on supporting education for future generations, Fuji Xerox Australia has been working with long standing community partners and other like minded organisations to support children in high needs communities in their early learning, ongoing education and transition to sustainable employment.

This has been our primary community focus for over 25 years. In 14/15 we introduced a new initiative to support the focus on the preservation of indigenous cultures and information. See Our supply chain – responsible paper procurement section for information on our carbon offset projects that have been delivering economic, social and environmental benefits to indigenous communities in Cape York, Queensland and Kariba, Zimbabwe.

10,000 books for National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day

Fuji Xerox Australia provided pro-bono print support for 10,000 copies of a book by an 11 year Aboriginal girl to support National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day (NATSICD), 04 August 2015.

The book, titled Little People, Big Futures was written by Saoirse and developed through Kids’ Own Publishing’s WePublish app for iPad. Fuji Xerox Australia along with Marvel Book Binding and Print Finishing produced 10,000 copies of the book to show their support for literacy development in Aboriginal and Torres Strait communities.

"We are delighted that Fuji Xerox Australia has decided to partner with us on this extremely important initiative. Our vision is aligned whereby both organisations are focused on supporting education for future generations and the preservation of diminishing cultures and information." - Victoria Ryle, Executive Director, Kids' Own Publishing
