Participating in the UN Global Compact
Spearheading Activities as a LEAD Company
Fuji Xerox supports the UN Global CompactNote 1 and became a signatory in fiscal 2002. We and our affiliates view the principles of the UN Global Compact as fundamental to our own CSR values and have incorporated these principles in our Code of Conduct. We also present the principles to our suppliers as a key requirement for ethical procurement. Fuji Xerox became a signatory to the Global Compact CEO Statement in fiscal 2008 with the signature of then President and current Chairman Tadahito Yamamoto. Fuji Xerox was nominated a UN Global Compact LEAD company (there are now 43 such companies throughout the world) in fiscal 2010 in recognition of the commitment of Fuji Xerox top management and the company's proactive measures in this field.
Former Fuji Xerox President Toshio Arima presently serves as a member of the Global Compact Board in New York City, and manages the Global Compact Network Japan (GC-NJ), which currently comprises some 200 companies and organizations. We also actively support the UN Global Compact Office in New York City and GC-NJ by seconding employees.
- Note 1 The UN Global Compact details 10 universally accepted core principles for CSR in the areas of human rights, labour, environment, and anticorruption, with signatories required to take proactive steps toward achieving these goals.
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
