Xerox Environment, Health, and Safety, and Sustainability Governance and Policy
The Xerox Environment, Health, and Safety, and Sustainability (EHS&S) organisation ensures company-wide adherence to Xerox's environment, health, and safety, and sustainability policy. The governance model we use to accomplish this includes clearly defined goals, a single set of worldwide standards, and an audit process that ensures conformance to these requirements. Our EHS&S governance and policy, adopted in 1991, forms the foundation of our environmental leadership program.
