Xerox Receives ENERGY STAR® Program’s Highest Honor
In recognition of superior energy management.
Xerox is honored to have received the 2021 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year Award, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy’s premier award.
Winners are selected from a network of thousands of ENERGY STAR® partners and are a part of a distinguished group that has performed at a superior level of energy management. Winners must:
Demonstrate best practices across the organization;
Prove organization-wide energy savings; and
Participate actively and communicate the benefits of ENERGY STAR®.
Xerox has a legacy of innovation that helps make the world a more sustainable place. As part of Xerox’s long-running Design for Sustainability initiative, the company redesigned the power supply on certain models of new printers to optimize energy savings, reducing energy consumption by 14%.
Additionally, we collaborated with the EPA to develop the latest revision of the ENERGY STAR® Imaging Equipment standard, which defined criteria for remanufactured equipment.
Since 1993, more than 500 Xerox products have achieved ENERGY STAR® registration. Xerox aims for 100% of its eligible new products to earn ENERGY STAR certification and has met this goal every year since 2010.
“ENERGY STAR® award-winning partners are showing the world that delivering real climate solutions makes good business sense and promotes job growth,” said EPA Administrator Michael S. Regan. “Many of them have been doing it for years, inspiring all of us who are committed to tackling the climate crisis and leading the way to a clean energy economy.”
