Supplier Relations

Our Global Purchasing organization manages the sourcing, contracting, purchasing and supplier oversight activities for technology, indirect and services suppliers across Xerox and its affiliates. As with any relationship-based engagement, face-to-face communication is critical to building trust, respect and credibility. The Global Purchasing staff is located across the world to facilitate a more direct interaction between our buyers and our suppliers within each region. This includes a strong purchasing presence across the U.S., Europe and Asia.

Our purchasing professionals manage over $11 billion of global annual spend with suppliers, assess the quality, cost, delivery and sustainability of the supplier's products and ensure the business is run with the highest ethical standards. Through our www.xerox.com/suppliers website, both current and potential vendors can learn about the latest procurement initiatives and find information on supplier diversity, procurement policies, supplier quality assurance and supplier ethics.


In 2012, an overwhelming majority of our global technology supplier spend occurred with the following firms. Access the links below to learn more about their corporate social responsibility activities.

Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply Certification
During early 2009, Xerox became the first organization to attempt and successfully achieve global certification from the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS) in the area of procurement excellence through processes and procedures. This is now referred to as CIPS Silver. Building on that momentum, we became the first company to successfully achieve the CIPS Gold Certification at a global level in 2012.

The Gold Certification means that Xerox achieves leading benchmark levels in all aspects of ethical, sustainable and strategic procurement when measured against CIPS globally respected standards. The standards are structured around leadership and organization, strategy, people, process and systems, and performance measurement and management. The certification provides evidence that our Global Purchasing is effective at managing the global supplier base for business services, contract labor, facilities, information technology, marketing, transportation, business travel and vehicle fleet. Xerox Global Purchasing also manages direct/technology suppliers, contract manufacturing, and design partners who help us produce digital publishing systems, office printers, and multifunction devices and associated inks and toners. The consistency which comes from having leading practices in ethical, sustainable and strategic procurement promotes credible interactions between our procurement team and our suppliers.

We selected CIPS to assess our purchasing operations because of their focus on continuous improvement and benchmarking. The main certification review included an extensive audit and a series of interviews with key purchasing stakeholders.

About CIPS
CIPS is the leading international body representing purchasing and supply management professionals. CIPS ensures that formal purchasing and supply management practices are fully implemented and maintained against their established standards to its members and the companies which embark on corporate certification.

Supplier Code of Conduct/Ethics
Xerox is a global enterprise which applies heightened responsibility to act in a manner consistent with our sustainability and human rights ideals. This focus on sustainability and human rights standards is part of our long-standing, worldwide commitment to behave responsibly as a good corporate citizen.

To strengthen our approach to supplier-facing sustainability and human rights actions, Xerox has been a member of the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) since 2006 and is a member of the EICC Senior Executive Advisory Council. The EICC works together to improve social, economic and environmental outcomes in the electronics industry. We remain committed to EICC operating principles and have validated our compliance with the EICC guidelines and adopted the EICC's Code of Conduct on corporate social responsibility as our code of conduct for suppliers ("Supplier Code of Conduct"). The Supplier Code of Conduct includes labor standards based on recognized principles on international labor and human rights.

We have implemented a compliance program with certain strategic technology suppliers to monitor their compliance with the Supplier Code of Conduct.

Read the highlights of the Supplier Compliance Program.

As part of the Supplier Compliance Program, we strongly encourage our suppliers to comply with the Supplier Code of Conduct. The terms and conditions in Xerox purchase agreements and purchase order forms incorporate this requirement as well as the requirement for suppliers to comply with all applicable laws and regulations. We reinforce the Supplier Code of Conduct in an annual communication to our global supplier base.

For key suppliers and certain suppliers identified in an initial risk assessment, we require the completion of supplier questionnaires. In addition to allowing us to validate our initial risk assessment, this step serves to raise suppliers' awareness about the importance of social responsibility topics, clarify our expectations, target areas for review and establish written documentation of suppliers' assessment of their performance.

To monitor suppliers' compliance with the Supplier Code of Conduct, we conduct certain announced compliance reviews/audits of our key suppliers depending upon the results of the supplier questionnaire. In addition, we conduct announced compliance reviews/audits of a group of suppliers identified in Xerox’s initial risk assessment. If a supplier achieves a high level of performance, future follow up reviews may occur less frequently or be conducted through means other than site visits. This enables resources to spend more focused time with suppliers who have not yet achieved high levels of performance. Annual compliance reviews/audits are on-site visits by either trained Xerox or qualified third party personnel and follow a consistent review/audit process with a rigorous corrective action/follow up process. Supplier performance has improved over time with more suppliers achieving higher performance levels during 2012 than prior to 2012.


By the end of 2012, Xerox conducted over 240 first time and follow up Supplier Code of Conduct compliance reviews/audits. Areas of nonconformance are evaluated as priority, major, minor or observation and are addressed through a corrective action process. We monitor our compliance program regularly through internal management reviews.

Conflict Minerals
As an active member of EICC, we are committed to improving conditions in the electronic supply chain. Activities related to obtaining minerals that fuel human conflict are unacceptable. EICC members are taking actions to increase supply chain transparency, develop smelter audit processes to verify minerals are conflict free and implement robust due diligence supply chain reporting processes in accordance with the Dodd-Frank Act and corresponding SEC ruling on conflict minerals.

In early 2011, we established a global project team to develop a process for engaging our technology supply base and create a framework to respond to the legal and audit requirements of the Dodd-Frank Act. In exercising due diligence regarding the source and chain of custody of conflict minerals, we are utilizing the EICC template and software tools in reaching out to our supply base. In the third quarter of 2012, we piloted our proposed process with several key suppliers and upon completion submitted 34 smelters to the EICC. Beginning in 2013, we commenced our full rollout to our direct technology supply base to determine the use of these minerals in our products and the smelters processing these minerals. Our intent is to complete due diligence in time to submit the required SEC disclosure and conflict minerals report in 2014.

Supply Chain Security
We are committed to implementing security controls within our supply chain to enable the uninterrupted flow of products from the point of manufacture to the customer. Xerox is a certified participant of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) and the E.U. Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) program in the Netherlands and Ireland. Both programs require us to have specific security criteria present throughout our supply chain. C-TPAT, AEO and other specific Xerox criteria are contained in our Supplier Security Requirements for applicable external suppliers and in the Xerox Security Policies and Standards for internal locations. We have an ongoing assessment program to monitor compliance with the security criteria for high-risk suppliers and internal locations. We are a member of the High Tech Supply Chain Security Coalition (HTSC2) and the Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA).

Performance and Reviews
Our purchasing staff routinely tracks and reports on current and potential strategic suppliers for adherence to our requirements. Business reviews are held regularly with our key suppliers. This provides a forum to discuss our business relationships and to define and refine the metrics for Xerox and the supplier performance evaluations.

We require all technology suppliers to complete an assessment of their quality management system prior to being added to our Approved Vendors List (AVL), which includes about 1,000 active suppliers. We continue to use an internally developed supplier survey and assessment process, as we have for over 20 years, that covers relevant sections from ISO9001: 2008 and critical topics from current supply chain management practice. Our supplier quality management processes align with the global nature of our supply chain and current quality management standards.

Before potential primary technology suppliers are permitted to do business with us, we make on-site visits. Once a supplier is added to the AVL, we conduct on-site reviews periodically based on supplier performance and the scope of our business relationship. About 90% of our spend for the manufacturing of Xerox products comes from 50 global suppliers. These suppliers are managed closely with periodic business and quality reviews to ensure they continue to meet our high standards.

Supplier Diversity
As a global leader, we recognize that having a diverse supplier pool is a major competitive advantage and a powerful business tool. Our supplier diversity mission is to proactively identify, build relationships with, and purchase goods and services from certified small businesses as well as enterprises owned by minorities, women, veterans, gays and lesbians, and disabled persons. Our policy is that diverse suppliers will have an equal opportunity to be included in our strategic sourcing and procurement process.

Companies that seek to do business with us must demonstrate the ability to add value, and provide high-quality goods and services that are competitively priced, reliable, and aligned with our superior level of service. During 2012, Xerox and our subsidiaries purchased goods and services from minority-owned ($221 million), woman-owned ($361 million), veteran-owned ($52 million), and small ($1.3 billion) Tier I businesses in the U.S.




In 2011, Xerox joined the Inclusion Initiative, a group of companies committed to increasing engagement opportunities for minority- and women-owned (MWBE) law firms, to supplement other Xerox efforts to support diversity in the practice of law. Each year, we commit to helping the Initiative meet its collective annual MWBE law firm spend target by setting its own goals for the year, encouraging our attorneys to seek out and consider MWBE law firms for work on matters that require outside counsel, and providing resources to help identify qualified MWBE firms that fit their needs. Since joining the Initiative and increasing its focus on these practices, we have expanded both the number of MWBE law firms engaged to work on Xerox matters and the type of work handled by those firms.

We are an active corporate member of the National Minority Supplier Development Council and served on the board of the Canadian Aboriginal and Minority Supplier Development Council. Beginning in 2013, we will be recognized as a corporate member of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council. In addition, we participate in multiple small business and diverse supplier fairs and conferences throughout the year.

More information about our supplier diversity is available at www.xerox.com/supplierdiversity.

Energy Use Reduction

Preserving the Planet

We are proud to announce that through the teamwork of Xerox people worldwide we have achieved and surpassed our goals for the Xerox “Energy Challenge 2012” program. In 2003, we established a program and made a public commitment to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 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 GHG emissions across all company operations, by 2012, from a 2002 baseline.

We met this target six years ahead of schedule and in 2007 we set a new and challenging goal to reduce our GHG emissions by 25% by 2012, from the 2002 baseline.

At the conclusion of the corporate Energy Challenge 2012 program, we successfully reduced emissions by 42%, or 210,000 tons of carbon dioxide equivalents (CO2e) while saving energy – consumption was down 33% compared with 2002.
