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 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. 

  Scope 1 Scope 2 Scope 3
Emission Sources Direct emissions from natural gas used for heating buildings, diesel used in generators Indirect emissions from purchased electricity, estimated refrigerants, and estimated natural gas in leased sites Indirect emissions from purchased goods and services, fuel and energy related activities (market-based), business travel (air travel without radiative forcing), employee commuting and work from home, upstream leased assets, and cloud emissions.

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 2022
Water withdrawals (gallons) 24,130,978 30,132,651 22,220,667
Wastewater discharges (gallons) 17,680,715 16,714,784 9,230,340


WASTE 2020 2021 2022
Mixed Solid Waste (lbs) 101,510 102,649 175,027
Recycling 4,964 5,020 78,009
Landfill 96,546 97,629 97,018
E-waste (lbs) 15,707 20,352 19,988
E-waste Recycling 15,707 20,352 19,988
TOTAL 117,217 123,001 195,015

Table Footnotes:

  1. In FY22, we updated our methodology to estimate and calculate water withdrawals and discharges. This resulted in significant changes to water discharges compared to what we’ve reported in previous years. Due to the significance, we have applied the same methodology used in FY22 to FY21 and FY20.
  2. In FY22, we began composting food waste at one of our larger sites. This resulted in a large increase in recycled waste in FY22. We expect this would also result in a similar decrease in waste to landfill at this site, but we cannot reflect this in FY22 as we did not receive actual data for all waste to landfill and instead estimate this data. In the future, we will work to collect actual data from our waste providers so we can realize reductions in waste to landfill when we make improvements to our practices.

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.
