    Fuji Xerox Starts Shipping Woodchips from its Own Plantation in New Zealand
    NOV
    2005, Fuji Xerox Co. of Japan shipped its first cargo of woodchips from
    eucalyptus trees planted in 1992 by the Southland Plantation Forest
    Company of New Zealand Limited (SPFL), partly owned by Fuji Xerox and
    its affiliate Fuji Xerox Office Supply Co.
    This wood has been
    certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), an international
    nongovernmental organization set up to promote sustainable forestry, as
    having been raised under proper forest management. The woodchips will
    be processed at Oji Paper Co.’s Nichinan Factory in Miyazaki prefecture
    into FSC-certified paper for copy machines and printers as a Fuji Xerox
    brand for domestic use.
    SPFL started planting eucalyptus on a 520
    hectare plot; its plantations now cover approximately 10,000 hectares.
    This shipment was the first crop of eucalyptus trees planted in 1992.
    The harvested area has been replanted for gradual expansion of crop
    yields so that a stable annual production of around 180,000 tons can be
    maintained starting in 2010.
    Fuji Xerox and Fuji Xerox Office Supply
    recognize that helping prevent the depletion of natural resources is
    one of their critical responsibilities, and are committed to supplying
    copy and printer paper in a sustainable manner. To achieve this, they
    intend to maintain present ratios of recycled pulp above 50 percent,
    while also implementing their “Eco-Conscious Pulp Plan” to cover the
    rest of the necessary supply with pulp that comes from plantations
    and/or FSC certified pulp by 2010.
