Our Thoughts on Community Engagement

Fuji Xerox believes that conducting community engagement 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 Community Engagement Activities and are actively conducting community engagement 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 community engagement themes: "Education for future generations" and "Conservation of diminishing cultures and information."

Philosophy on Community Engagement 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.

Scope of Community Engagement 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We will promote projects to provide learning materials in emerging countries and to replicate historical documents, which we have selected as our companywide programs to make a visible contribution in line with the key community engagement activity themes.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 community engagement activities and business operations.

Framework of Community Engagement Activities at Fuji Xerox

Our mid- to long-term objectives of community engagement activities are designed to: promote visible and characteristic social contribution activities; help solve local issues; and energize employees through participation in community engagement activities.

In 2015, we expanded our project of providing learning materials in developing countries for the education of future generations to Thailand and Myanmar. Our project of replicating historical documents in order to preserve cultural legacy, managed from two centers in Kyoto and Yokohama, is being expanded to the whole country. Apart from that, Fuji Xerox and its affiliated companies keep promoting community engagement activities tailored to the needs of each particular location both in Japan and overseas.
