EHS and Sustainability Policy at Xerox
The Xerox Environment, Health, Safety, and Sustainability (EHS&S) organisation ensures company-wide adherence to Xerox’s environment, health, 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.
