Xerox Corporation is a $16 billion document management technology and services company. While providing a broad portfolio of color and black-and-white document processing systems and related supplies, it also offers document management consulting and outsourcing services.

This corporation has not only held strong in its commitment to customer satisfaction during the past 40 years, but has also remained at the forefront of technology, delivering measurable benefits to the environment.

"Long before it was popular to do so, Xerox ranked sustainability high on its list of priorities and led the industry in innovative ways to reduce waste and conserve energy," said Patricia Calkins, vice president, environment, health, and safety for Xerox. "Our long-term experience has shown us that when we act in ways that benefit the environment, we make sound business decisions that not only benefit Xerox, but also our customers and shareholders."

Xerox is a member of the California Climate Action Registry and the United States Climate Action Partnership (USCAP). It was named to the Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index in recognition of its economic, environmental, and social performance, and it received the National Medal of Technology — the highest technology award in the United States — for its innovations.

The company's sizeable fleet of 10,500 vehicles helps transport salespeople and service technicians around the world. In an effort to minimize transportation costs and the fleet's environmental footprint, Xerox's fleet management has implemented aggressive cost-saving and environmental programs.
