Environmental Sustainability

Tyler is committed to conserving natural resources through implementing environmental initiatives and facilitating sustainable behavior. Our operational focus areas include energy efficiency, renewable energy procurement, water conservation, and waste minimization.

We work to continually improve our awareness of our impacts, even as we grow. Our Environmental Task Force, comprised of multiple facility managers representing our divisional headquarters, organizes its work across three foundational pillars addressing our operational focus areas:


Energy-Optimized Operations

Ensuring energy efficient buildings and business operations through lighting, HVAC, insulation, power management, and renewable energy initiatives



Saving and recycling resources including water, single-use waste, paper, and sustainable procurement initiatives


Green Planet

Promoting environmental awareness through training, signage, office green team engagement, behavioral challenge programs, and biodiversity-related initiatives

Emissions and Energy

Tyler calculates our emissions and energy consumption annually with the goal of strengthening our analysis over time. We consistently look for opportunities to increase our energy efficiency and pursue renewable energy, even while we set the stage to implement an emissions reduction target in the future.

Tyler completed the acquisition of NIC in mid-2021, Tyler’s largest acquisition to date. Primary data for NIC was not available; therefore, our 2021 results with NIC are estimated using intensity metrics to reflect the acquisition. For transparency, we are providing data to show metrics both with and without the acquisition as an interim measure while we work to strengthen our data collection and quality.

Water and Waste

While Tyler’s water and waste impacts are relatively small compared to many other sectors due to operating in an office-based environment, we recognize that our environmental strategy should address all aspects of our impacts. We first calculated our water and waste metrics in 2020 to set the stage for further action.

WATER 2020 2021* 2021**
Water withdrawals (gallons) 24,195,151 23,333,066 20,674,284
Wastewater discharges (gallons) 50,737,921 49,875,771 41,726,082


WASTE 2020 2021* 2021**
Mixed Solid Waste (lbs) 101,510 102,649 102,011
Recycling 4,964 5,020 4,988

E-waste Recycling 15,707 20,352 20,352
TOTAL 117,217 123,001 122,363

Tyler’s greenhouse gas inventory is conducted in accordance with the World Resources Institute’s (WRI) and World Business Council for Sustainable Development’s (WBCSD’s) GHG Protocol, including the GHG Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard (Revised Edition), the Scope 2 Guidance and the Corporate Value Chain (Scope 3) Accounting and Reporting Standard. 

These published environmental data may vary from previously reported values, due to adjustments for acquisitions, updated guidance and emissions factors, improved data collection, and/or data remediation. As Tyler is continually working to strengthen our data collection and quality, we will maintain transparency about our efforts and prepare for future third-party verification toward more accurate reporting. 

Please note our currently published environmental data has not undergone third-party verification.
