Photocopy and business machines OEM Xerox Corporation (Stamford, Connecticut, U.S.) today released its first global citizenship report. Xerox also announced it is joining The Nature Conservancy in a new partnership to improve management of global forests, the source of raw material for paper. The Xerox Foundation will make a donation of U.S. $1 million to the Conservancy.

Xerox's 2006 Report on Global Citizenship - Revealing Our True Colors details the company's citizenship practices and policies, recent accomplishments and goals. The 70-page report includes data on the company's environmental performance, workplace policies and corporate, customer and social practices. It covers topics that include ethics and governance, customer privacy and satisfaction, employee diversity and development, environmental initiatives, and philanthropy and volunteerism.

"In a world of necessarily complex and varied metrics, one stands taller than all the rest. Each generation of Xerox people strives to leave the company, the communities in which we do business, and the world at large better than we found it. We all feel that we are part of an ongoing experiment to demonstrate that good business and good values are not only compatible but synergistic," said Anne Mulcahy, Xerox chairman and CEO, in a statement in the Report.

As the world's largest distributor of cut-sheet paper, Xerox said it respects its responsibility to foster sustainable development by using paper wisely and protecting forest resources. The grant, along with expertise from Xerox, will help The Nature Conservancy to:


  • Launch an online forest database for Canada's boreal forest.
  • Strengthen third-party forest certification standards, which Xerox relies on to ensure paper comes from responsibly managed forests.
  • Identify best forest biodiversity management practices and communicate them with forest managers, paper suppliers and others.


Xerox said its goal with the Conservancy is to achieve far-reaching benefits for Canadian forests and others worldwide. The partnership is in addition to Xerox's current initiatives that minimize environmental impact, such as developing paper with 100 percent recycled content, designing printers and copiers with duplex printing features, and investing in digital printing and workflow tools that help customers reduce their dependency on paper.

Xerox relied on the Global Reporting Initiative Guidelines to determine the content and performance metrics for its 2006 Report on Global Citizenship. It also consulted with Business for Social Responsibility, a nonprofit that works to advance the field of corporate social responsibility, to help determine the report's relevance, completeness and responsiveness to stakeholders.
