For the ninth consecutive year, Xerox (NYSE: XRX) has been named to the “100 Best Corporate Citizens List” by Corporate Responsibility Magazine, one of North America’s leading voices on corporate responsibility.
Corporate Responsibility (CR) Magazine, which analyzes best practices and tracks CSR trends, recognized Xerox for its programs that work to nurture a greener world, create diverse and inclusive workplaces, and strong, viable communities where its employees and customers work and live.
CR Magazine ranks companies in seven categories: environment; climate change; employee relations, human rights; corporate governance; financial performance; philanthropy and community support. According to the magazine, companies included on the list “deliver on their commitments to transparency and accountability in highly competitive industries.”
Xerox programs for corporate social responsibility outreach include the following:
Xerox Green World Alliance: A deposit program in which an estimated 2.5 million cartridges and toner containers are recycled annually. This has kept more than 145 million pounds of waste out of landfills over the past 20 years.
Participation in Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EEIC), a standards-based approach to monitoring labor, health and safety. This shapes Xerox’s policy letter on human rights.
Xerox Philanthropy: Programs focused on employee-driven volunteer efforts on specific projects in their communities. These include an effort to increase the number of women and minorities following STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education and career paths.
The “100 Best Corporate Citizens List” was first published in 1999 in Business Ethics Magazine, and has been managed by CR Magazine since 2007. To compile the list, every company in the Russell 1000, the highest ranked stocks in the Russell 3000 Index of publicly held U.S. companies, is ranked according to 303 data points. The methodology for generating the list is governed by the Ratings and Rankings Thought Leadership Council of the Corporate Responsibility Association (CRA).
