Being a responsible steward of the environment is inherently linked to the core Fiserv strategy underlying all of our business activities. By automating processes and applying technology to the business needs of the financial services industry, we have replaced tons of paper with electronic files and millions of physical shipments with electronic transmissions. Our innovations in areas such as online banking, remote deposit capture and electronic billing reduce reliance on paper and shipping-related environmental costs around the world every day.
As Fiserv continues to grow, we are mindful of our impact on the world we all share. We track and measure our environmental footprint across all Fiserv businesses and proactively manage our locations to reduce our environmental impact. In 2014, we participated in our first annual greenhouse gas emissions inventory. Since that baseline year, we have steadily reduced the environmental impact of our global footprint.

In addition to our business innovations, Fiserv is committed to operating its business locations in an environmentally responsible manner. For example, we recycle most office paper and printer supplies, support telecommuting, flexible schedules and carpooling options, and partner with e-Cycle to recycle all company-owned mobile devices. We also look for ways to support environmentally responsible procurement, such as our national master agreement for building maintenance requires the use of eco-friendly cleaners and cleaning techniques.
