Challenge Eco No. 1 is a bottom-up approach to instill one of the Company’s Shared Values —Environmental Consciousness – in each Fuji Xerox employee as well as the entire value chain.

“The environment is our most important business partner and with a circular green business approach, all employees can create direct, meaningful and sustained environmental value on a daily basis at every stage of our value chain,” says Yaz Kuroha, general manager for the management quality office, Fuji Xerox APAC.

“Winning this award would not have been possible without the dedication, innovative thinking and hard work from every Fuji Xerox employee, and we will continue to challenge ourselves to do better. For us, sustainability has become a way of life.”
