First American's sustainability practices are guided by our core values of integrity, commitment, service, leadership and teamwork. These values influence the way in which we conduct our business and engage with the communities where we live and work.
We categorize the results of our sustainability efforts in three ways:
2017 Sustainability Report
First American's 2017 Corporate Sustainability Report provides transparency into the environmental and social initiatives that support the business of First American.
First American submitted a 2017 CDP Report as a part of its commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and mitigating the risks associated with climate change.
The Green Team and Planet First Council
First American's 18-member Green Team oversees and directs improvements in energy efficiency, water reduction, waste elimination and carbon management. Since its start, the Green Team has implemented improvement projects such as green cleaning, lighting retrofits, an energy demand response program, restroom fixture upgrades, a recycling program and Cafe upgrades. The Green Team directs the activities of First American's Planet First council, which works to reduce First American's carbon footprint and increase transparency regarding our sustainability initiatives and corporate stewardship.
