Fair Isaac Joins The Green Grid

Radial circle

In keeping with its commitment to sustainability and green technology, Fair Isaac Corporation (NYSE: FIC), a leading provider of analytics and decision management technology, today announced that it has become a member of The Green Grid, a global consortium dedicated to advancing energy efficiency in data centers and business computing ecosystems.

Through its deployment of cloud computing, virtualization and other advanced technologies, Fair Isaac has quickly become recognized as a leader in green data center management. The company recently announced its sustainable enterprise initiative, a company-wide program designed to reduce its carbon footprint through energy and natural resource conservation, while also delivering operational savings.

Among Fair Isaac's areas of focus are its information technology infrastructure, reducing employee travel and commute miles through the use of meeting and collaboration technology, and using post-consumer paper products wherever possible while decreasing overall consumption of paper.

"As an IT company ourselves, we appreciate the value of sophisticated technologies for solving business and environmental challenges," said Christopher Rence, chief information officer at Fair Isaac. "Innovation always involves risks, but like our customers, we've learned to be smart about managing that risk to get the results we're after."

Fair Isaac's membership in The Green Grid is particularly relevant because of that organization's mission to provide industry-wide recommendations on best practices, metrics and technologies that will improve overall data center and business computing energy efficiencies.

"The Green Grid's mission is closely aligned with our view that technology can be employed to help solve some enormously vexing problems" said Laurent Pacalin, chief marketing officer at Fair Isaac and co-founder of the Clean Tech Open. "Rather than choosing between data center performance and environmental responsibility, we're finding ways to choose both. Good decisions can be more powerful than compromises."
