TORONTO, Dec. 20 /CNW/ - Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) today released
its 2010 Report on Global Citizenship. The report provides a comprehensive overview of the company's
activities and progress in the areas of corporate social
responsibility: environmental sustainability, governance and ethics,
customer privacy and satisfaction, employee diversity and development
and corporate giving and volunteerism.
In the report's letter to stakeholders, Ursula Burns, Xerox chairman and CEO said, "We are a much bigger company today. We
offer a much broader portfolio of services and technology. We have
significantly expanded our global reach. But certain things remain the
same. We believe we are part of an ongoing experiment to prove that
good citizenship and good results are not only compatible but
synergistic - in good times and in challenging times."

that capture the essence of Xerox's citizenship efforts:
Conducting business with integrity and transparency builds credibility
