Fuji Xerox Promised To Support The Vancouver Declaration To Continue Promoting Ethical Procurement Of Paper
Recently, Fuji Xerox Co., Ltd. announced its support for the Vancouver Declaration issued by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), pledging to continue promoting ethical procurement of paper and promoting Fuji Xerox in all Asia-Pacific regions sustainable development. This is another powerful move by Fuji Xerox to "prevent the depletion of natural resources."
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is a global non-profit organization dedicated to promoting responsible global forest management. FSC officially unveiled the Vancouver Declaration at this year's Global Congress, which is one of its initiatives to help businesses achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals. FSC hopes that joint ventures will work together to promote the sustainability of the industry.
As an intermediary in the paper supply chain, Fuji Xerox has set a standard for paper procurement since 2004, presenting suppliers with key requirements that include traceability of raw materials and environmental management of the manufacturing plant. In 2012, Fuji Xerox proposed comprehensive evaluation criteria for suppliers based on three major social responsibilities of environmental protection, rights and interests of local residents and corporate ethics (including human rights). Fuji Xerox will suspend cooperation with suppliers if they find problems in their social responsibility or the environment. Currently, Fuji Xerox uses this paper procurement policy in all 15 branches in Japan and throughout the APAC operating agencies and complies with FSC guidelines and other international standards to ensure that forest resources around the world are managed responsibly. With the reduction of precious forest resources and the increasingly severe climate challenge, Fuji Xerox also plans to strengthen the procurement of natural resources and forest products by purchasing more forest products from responsible forest in its business areas and emerging markets Sustainability.
Adam Beaumont, Asia Pacific Director of FSC, said: "We are very pleased that Fuji Xerox can support the Vancouver Declaration, which is a recognition and trust of FSC from Fuji Xerox and we look forward to more Fuji Xerox purchasing of more FSC certified raw materials."
Janet Neo, Head of Corporate Sustainability Asia Pacific at Fuji Xerox, said: "Fuji Xerox has been selling FSC-certified paper for more than two decades and this participation in supporting the FSC Vancouver Declaration is an important manifestation of Fuji Xerox's ethical sourcing commitment, At the same time, we hope we can help smooth the achievement of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals set by the UN for changing the world. "
In the future, Fuji Xerox will further streamline its business operations in the Asia Pacific region and strive to achieve the goal of reducing carbon emissions by 30% in the entire value chain by 2020 and help customers, partners and partners in more influential sustainable development issues Suppliers work together. In order to understand the current and future market demand for FSC certification and to discuss with industry leaders the opportunities and challenges facing pulp, paper and packaging industries, Fuji Xerox also attended the 2017 FSC Asia Pacific Business Forum in Hanoi, Vietnam
