Our Thoughts on Social Contribution

Fuji Xerox believes that conducting social contribution activities means to fulfill our responsibility to society, improve the initiative and self-realization ability of each one of our employees, and will invigorate the entire organization. We set four basic policies based on our Philosophy on Social Contribution Activities and are actively conducting social contribution activities.
In fiscal 2012, based on the management discussion at the CSR Committee, Fuji Xerox decided to strengthen its activities in order to make a visible and characteristic contribution to society as a communications business company. Accordingly, based on our Mission Statement, in which we are committed to "Contribute to the advancement of the global community by continuously fostering mutual trust and enriching diverse cultures, we have identified as our key social contribution themes: "Education for future generations" and "Conservation of diminishing cultures."

Philosophy on Social Contribution Activities

In addition to providing excellent value to customers, Fuji Xerox and its affiliates work alongside our employees to play a leading role in cultural development and efforts to build a better society from a long-term and broad perspective, based on lofty ideals, to meet broad ranging societal expectations.

Basic Policy on Social Contribution Activities

  • We put priority on the activities for future generations and global environment.
  • We act focusing on the areas and regions which relate deeply with our core business.
  • We encourage voluntary participation of more employees.
  • We strengthen closer cooperation with outside partners who share value for these activities.

Scope of Social Contribution Activities

We will promote projects to provide learning materials in emerging countries and to replicate historical documents, which we have selected as our companywide programs to make a visible contribution in line with the key social contribution activity themes. In addition to traditional philanthropy programs, we will also promote other activities related to the key themes and work to solve local issues which require continuous engagement. Eventually, we would like to help solve social issues by a synergistic combination of our social contribution activities and business activities.

Framework of Social Contribution Activities at Fuji Xerox

Our mid- to long-term objectives of social contribution activities are designed to: promote visible and characteristic social contribution activities; help solve local problems; and energize employees through participation in social contribution activities.
In fiscal 2014, we started a learning material distribution project to promote the development of future generations in emerging countries. Through two project offices, we also strengthened the historical document duplication project to preserve traditional cultures. Moreover, we developed policies and priority subjects for overall social activities to be followed by affiliated companies in and outside Japan.
