FUJI XEROX AUSTRALIA RECOGNISED AS A LEADING IN SUSTAINABILITY FINALIST AT 2010 BANKSIA AWARDS
Sydney, 3rd September 2010 - Fuji Xerox Australia has been recognised as a finalist for the Leading in Sustainability - Setting the Standard for Large Organisations award at the 2010 Banksia Awards. Issued by the Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water NSW, this category of awards recognises organisations that have demonstrated leadership by fully integrating sustainable principles and practices into operational business activities, thus reducing the organisation’s footprint.
One of Fuji Xerox Australia’s sustainability success stories is its award-winning Eco-Manufacturing Centre, a state-of-the-art engineering facility that remanufactures parts and sub-assemblies removed from equipment during servicing. The centre significantly reduces the amount of electronic waste that ends up in Australia’s landfills and has achieved a $240 million return on a $22 million investment. Celebrating its tenth year of operation in 2010, the centre has also previously been named in the United Nations Global 500 Roll of Environmental Honour.
Fuji Xerox Australia has demonstrated innovative leadership in environmentally responsible technologies, offering solutions such as:
- EA-Eco Toner, which lowers the fusing temperature by 20ºC compared to conventional toners, cutting power used by around 15 per cent
- Induction Heating (IH) fusing technology, which eliminates the need for pre-heating and doesn’t consume power when the machine is in standby mode
- high intensity white LED as the light source for image scanning, which enables brightness that is 1.5 times greater than xenon lamps used in conventional devices and reduces power consumption by 70 per cent, while achieving greater scanning precision and speed; and
- high-precision, LED print head technology ‘DELCIS’ (Digitally Enhanced Lighting Control Imaging System) that achieves superior output resolution, making it possible to build even smaller devices, and reducing power consumption by 45 per cent.
"We are delighted to have been named a finalist in such a prestigious award," said Amanda Keogh, Manager of Environment and Sustainability at Fuji Xerox Australia.
"Fuji Xerox invests significant resources in enhancing sustainability outcomes for the communities and environments in which we operate. Investing in our environmental sustainability also creates a positive impact for our bottom line."
To document its achievements in environmental sustainability, each year Fuji Xerox Australia releases an independently audited Sustainability Report that evaluates the company’s successes in attaining its environmental, social and economic targets, and matches these to the aims it has set for itself.
