EHS and Sustainability Policy at Xerox

The Xerox Environment, Health, Safety, and Sustainability (EHS&S) organization 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. Our EHS&S governance and policy, adopted in 1991, forms the foundation of our environmental leadership program.

Xerox EHS&S Policy:

It is the policy of Xerox Corporation to:

  • comply with applicable environment, health and safety laws, rules, regulations and Xerox Standards;
  • take appropriate measures to protect the environment and health and safety of our employees, customers, suppliers and neighbors from unacceptable risk;

  • assess environment, health, and safety impacts before starting a new activity or project;
