Fair Isaac Corp. last week announced it was launching a Sustainable Enterprise Initiative designed to reduce its carbon footprint through energy and natural resource conversation. Fair Isaac will be improving its energy efficiency through IT infrastructure changes, added telecommuting options for employees, and reducing paper consumption.

The efforts are expected to cut Minneapolis-based Fair Isaac’s power needs for IT systems by 50 percent, and reduce its printing output by 80 percent, within two years.

"The drive to create this program actually emanated from all across the company at once," said Christopher Rence, CIO at Fair Isaac, in a statement. "At the same time company leadership was considering the best ways to increase system efficiency and performance, employees were asking what more they could do in terms of recycling and other volunteer activities. So in comparison to some companies, our decision to undertake this initiative has been quick and easy."
