Reducing Our Company-wide Carbon Footprint

Energy Challenge 2012

In 2003, Xerox made a public commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions – our carbon footprint – by joining the U.S. EPA Climate Leaders program and launching an internal program known as Energy Challenge 2012. We adopted a goal of reducing by 10% our absolute greenhouse gas emissions, across all company operations, by 2012 from a 2002 baseline. By focusing efforts on energy efficiency, new technologies and business productivity, Xerox met this target six years early – in 2006. Recognizing our obligation to do even more, in 2007 Xerox set a new and challenging goal to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions 25% by 2012 from a 2002 baseline. Through 2007, we have cut emissions by 21%, or 108,000 tons of carbon dioxide equivalent. This was achieved by reducing energy consumption in our facilities, manufacturing operations and across our service and sales vehicle fleet. In 2007, energy consumption decreased 2% compared with 2006 and by 19% compared with 2002. With energy and fuel costs rising, additional benefits have included avoiding certain energy-related costs.
