Here are some of the reasons why Xerox Canada Inc. was selected as one of Canada's Greenest Employers (2016):
- In a unique partnership that started in 2006, Xerox Canada granted $6 million to The Nature Conservancy to help conserve and protect globally important forests -- the two organizations have also formed the "Forest Conservation Partnership" to develop and improve forest management and conservation practices
- Xerox Canada employees created the "Sustainability at Work Internal Yammer Group", dedicated to blogging and sharing green tips, stories and resources -- employees also volunteer to form a "Global Earth Day" team to organize engaging and fun experiences while building environmental awareness during "Earth Month"
- Xerox Canada established "Environmental Faces of Xerox Award", allowing employees to nominate and acknowledge colleagues who have demonstrated environmental leadership
