<p>For immediate release</p>
<p>Fuji Xerox Printers Makes the Industry Green With Envy</p>
<p>Receives “Good Environmental Choice” label for its latest product suite</p>
<p>SYDNEY - 26 July 2004 - Fuji Xerox Printers, the leading provider of quality print solutions, today announced that the majority of its printer range has now been awarded the “Good Environmental Choice” certification from the Australian Environmental Labelling Association (AELA). Fuji Xerox printers are the only printers in Australia to carry the prestigious accreditation.</p>
<p>“Fuji Xerox Printers’ product range stands in a class of its own for technological and design innovation with environmental considerations in mind, and is an intelligent choice for companies looking to fulfil their green procurement objectives,” said Petar Johnson, President of AELA. “We are inspired to see an impressive global brand name take the environment on board as part of its ongoing business requirements and are witnessing the trend which they are leading.”</p>
<p>The printers were awarded the accreditation predominantly for:</p>
<p>- Implementation of unique solid ink technology that rids the environment of traditional liquid ink cartridges</p>
<p>- Energy efficiency and low environmental impact</p>
<p>- Compact size and weight</p>
<p>- Ability to offer quality printing on recycled paper without concerns for printer malfunctions, warranty issues or extra service as experienced with some other brand printers</p>
<p>- Good performance for a large number of additional relevant environmental considerations along the product life cycle such as restrictions on the type of chemical additives in plastics, low noise and low air emissions in the office environment and design for recyclability.</p>
<p>The FXP printers that will now carry the Ecolabel are the Phaser 8200, Phaser 8400, Phaser 7750, DocuPrint C2428, DocuPrint 240A, DocuPrint 340A, DocuPrint 205 and DocuPrint 305.</p>
<p>FXP takes an eco-conscious approach to many aspects of its business. These initiatives include:</p>
<p>- Certification as ISO 14001 compliant for an environmental management system, meaning all of FXP Asia Pacific fully complies with relevant environmental legislation</p>
<p>- “Eco Mark” certification for all new printers that use the lowest power consumption in their class</p>
<p>- Involvement in broader community-based environmental activities. For example FXP staff planted 500 native trees for World Environment Day in May 2004</p>
<p>- Dedicated regional environmental manager who is committed to setting targets and driving environmental policies.</p>
<p>Peter Diprose, Regional Environmental Manager, Fuji Xerox Printers said, “We are constantly striving to achieve an eco-friendly approach to all aspects of our business including how we run our day-to-day operations, the way we manufacture our printers and their functionality. Achieving the Ecolabel for our printers and being recognised as an environmentally progressive manufacturer by the AELA is a huge boon for our environmental endeavours.”</p>
