Making sustainable contributions

Global Payments is committed to minimizing our environmental footprint. We have prioritized areas where we believe we can make the most meaningful contribution, which includes managing our energy consumption, limiting waste and conserving water across our facilities and data spaces globally.

While the vast majority of our office properties and enterprise data center spaces are leased, we can still have a significant environmental impact. We have many initiatives in place today and are focused on identifying additional ways to conserve around the world. In addition to our own efforts, we are committed to assessing the policies and practices of our existing and potential vendors and suppliers on environmental stewardship.
