This publication is Lexmark’s tenth Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) report. Annually, we strive to provide a full account of our CSR and sustainability strategy, and performance in our worldwide operations for our many stakeholders across the globe. This report (January–December 2016) includes updates to key programs and performance metrics as well as a transparent assessment of our progress against established goals. The scope, boundary and measurement methods applied in this report do not significantly differ from previous reports, the last of which was published May 2016. Lexmark was acquired on November 29, 2016, and is now privately owned.
This report has been prepared in accordance with the GRI Standards: Core option. Our reporting is also guided by the ISO 26000 international standard and the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact. Lexmark reviewed and verified all data internally. External assurance was not pursued at this time. Lexmark’s CSR report assesses our operations globally. Unless noted, principles and policies referenced in the report apply to worldwide, company-owned locations and to all Lexmark employees. Restatements of information provided in previous reporting is located here.
The metrics and goals in this report are established and measured by Lexmark International to deliver a meaningful and accurate description of our performance. The complex nature of collecting data in a global manufacturing company with multiple sites and facilities presents challenges in compiling consistent and comparable metrics. While this report includes consistent metrics in most areas, we continue to improve the standardization of our measurement systems. Our performance metrics cover Lexmark-operated facilities.
Environmental metrics are reported using widely accepted parameters and units. Using the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and World Resource Institute (WRI) Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol methodology, we track greenhouse gas emissions, as well as our use of natural gas, fuel oil, diesel, gasoline and electricity.
