by September 23, 2016 0 comments

 Xerox has been named to the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World) for the first time and the Dow Jones SustainabilityNorth America Index for the third consecutive year.

In the categories of corporate code of conduct, corporate governance and environmental management and reporting, Xerox exceeded the average score of DJSI World Members. Xerox was one of nine companies in the IT and software services sector to make the DJSI industry list and scored higher than most of the other industry members on all DJSI dimensions (economic, environmental and social).


“To be recognized as a leader in sustainability is validation of our long-standing commitment to corporate social responsibility that is core to our business, operations, products and solutions throughout the world,” said Flor Colon, Xerox Corporate Social Responsibility council chair.


Xerox partners with its clients to develop next-generation solutions. Some recent examples in transportation include:


*New trip-planning apps for the cities of DenverLos Angeles and Bengaluru, India allow commuters to plan their transit journeys from door-to-door using buses, subways, car sharing or other modes of transportation. The apps, Go LA and Go Denver, include an “eco-friendly” option – essentially routes that build in some amount of walking.


*Dynamic pricing strategies are making it easier to find parking spots where and when drivers need them in cities such as Indianapolis and Los Angeles. This reduces congestion and carbon emissions because drivers spend less time circling the block looking for a place to park.


*Conversely, electronic toll collection keeps traffic moving – crucial at a time more vehicles are competing for capacity on the same roads. The use of electronic toll collection (ETC) technology gets cars through tollbooths quick, reducing idling time.
