2011 Corporate Social Responsibility Report

INNOVATION

Innovation is core to Lexmark's business strategy. Innovation allows us to deliver solutions that make them more productive and efficient. Our focus on socially and environmentally beneficial innovation allows us to be more productive and efficient while being respectful of our environment and socially responsible.

Refer to the case studies below for examples of recent environmentally and socially beneficial innovations.

During training, our employees are made aware that looking for and discovering better, more efficient and improved eco-friendly ways of doing things, is the surest method of bettering our company, helping our customers and safeguarding the environment. Whether it’s improved energy efficiency in our facilities or better ways of making, packaging and shipping our products, we expect all our employees to think outside the box.

Encouraging innovation

Excellence Symposium

Throughout the year Lexmark offers engineers and designers opportunities to learn about innovation and try their hand at creating solutions. Among the many opportunities in 2011 Lexmark offered the Excellence Symposium, an event where external speakers describe the benefits of particular Lexmark equipment in their operations, and the Entrepreneurial Challenge–a platform for our employees to put forth new and innovative ideas they may have that would benefit Lexmark's customers.
