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 withdrawals (gallons)
|Wastewater discharges (gallons)
|Mixed Solid Waste (lbs)
- 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.
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.
