Xerox has a long-standing commitment to Carbon Footprint Reduction and is aiming to further reduce energy intensity of its North American manufacturing sites through participation in DOE's Better Plants Program:
- In 2003, Xerox joined the U.S. EPA Climate Leaders program and launched "Xerox Energy Challenge 2012" with a goal to reduce energy and GHGs across all corporate operations 10% by 2012. The company met this target 6 years early and set a new target of 25% reduction by 2012 (2002 baseline).
- By 2012, Xerox met the 25% reduction target. Emissions dropped 42% and energy 31%. The company achieved the reduction through various means including consolidations, more efficient lighting systems, as well as engineering changes for energy intensive processes. The company's current energy reduction goal is 25% by 2025 (2016 baseline). For further details, please see Xerox 2018 CSR report.
- In 2018, Xerox doubled downed on their corporate energy reduction goal by joining the Better Plants Program as a Challenge Partner. Through the Better Plants Challenge, Xerox will maintain a focus on transparency around meeting its energy reduction goals.
- Xerox also has established corporate goals of using 20% renewable energy by 2020, reducing water usage 35% by 2020, and achieving 100% landfill avoidance by 2020.
