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:
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.
