    Green Fingers Come out Again at Fuji Xerox Printers

    Green Fingers Come out Again at Fuji Xerox Printers

    Improving Sydney’s water quality with the planting of 500

    SYDNEY, Australia –  May 2005 – Fuji Xerox Printers, the
    leading provider of quality print solutions, is continuing its ongoing
    commitment to environmental initiatives, via a partnership with Greening
    Australia to plant five hundred native trees and shrubs in an effort to improve
    the quality of Sydney’s water.

    Involving a team of 40 community volunteers and FXP staff
    members, the planting will occur on Wednesday, May 25 at Arthursleigh Farm,
    Marulan, near Goulburn – a site badly affected by erosion causing serious
    turbidity of water flowing into the nearby Wollondilly River and directly
    impacting Warragamba Dam, which stores approximately 80 per cent of Sydney’s
    water supply.

    “The main objective of the Arthursleigh planting project is
    to reduce the release of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and ultimately the
    Greenhouse effect,” said Brian Cumberland, Operations Manager for Greening
    Australia. “We’re extremely pleased by the involvement of both the University of
    Sydney who own the site and the Fuji Xerox Printers team, as they are making a
    contribution to a land care issue which impacts so many.”

    “We were very impressed with the success of last years’
    planting at Holdens Creek, an area that was badly degraded in the Canberra
    bushfires of January 2003. The survival rate is running at 88 per cent, which is
    excellent especially given the dry conditions,” Cumberland continued.

    “While planting is only one of many initiatives FXP
    undertakes each year to support the environment, it’s certainly one of the most
    rewarding when we hear of results like this,” said Peter Diprose, Regional
    Environment Manager, Fuji Xerox Printers. “We are excited to have the
    opportunity to assist with the drainage line erosion on Arthursleigh,
    particularly because it impacts on our water supply and Sydney, Illawarra and
    the Blue Mountains are currently experiencing drought conditions.”

    An eco-friendly company, Fuji Xerox Printers achieved the
    following in 2004 as a result of the environmental initiatives:

    Achieved AELA Good Environmental Choice certification for 8
    printers CO2 Reduction (-37.2% or 57.04 Tonnes) Tree Planting – 6000 trees and
    native flora planted during FY04 (~107 tonne CO2 absorbed … carbon neutral apart
    from SCM) Significant reduction in paper consumption (-19% approx 240,000 pages)
    Recycled media usage increased (from 13% to 44%) Conversion of fleet vehicles to
    LPG or 4 cylinder vehicles (73%) Recycling and reuse of packaging materials

    FXP has also committed funds for Greening Australia to direct
    seed 7,500 native trees and shrubs via 22.5kms of tree line in spring 2005 to
    ensure ongoing support of the area.

    Photography of the tree planting will be available 26 May
    2005. For photography, please email rachael.norcott@maxaustralia.com.au or call
