Human Rights

Xerox Corporation and our affiliates and distributors do business in more than 160 countries. Our 58,000 employees work with customers, suppliers and partners in every corner of the globe. We are truly a global enterprise and with that comes the responsibility to behave responsibly as a corporate citizen in the smallest towns to the largest countries, with every employee engagement, every partner relationship and every customer touch point. We do this by running our global business with great respect for human rights. We are principally guided by the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Our support for these principles is embedded in our codes of conduct, in our position on labor relations, in our employment practices, in our relationships with suppliers and in how we build our business in emerging markets. We inspect for compliance through our management processes including operations reviews, risk management and internal audit systems, and supplier assessments.

To further our commitment, Xerox is a member of the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC), a standards-based approach for monitoring suppliers’ compliance across several areas of social responsibility, including labor, health, safety and environmental activity. We also support our position on human rights through a corporate-wide global policy letter on human rights.
