April 21, 2022


EQUIFAX HAS COMMITTED to reaching net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2040, an important sustainability commitment enabled by our Equifax Cloud™. As part of our commitment to Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) priorities, Equifax tracks its environmental impacts and began disclosing the company’s greenhouse gas emissions in 2021. 

As a global data, analytics and technology company, we at Equifax are motivated to help drive more sustainable practices in our industry and beyond. Our more than $1.5 billion investment in cloud transformation not only helped embed security throughout the enterprise but is also a key driver towards achieving our sustainability goals. From minimizing energy consumption more efficiently than with on-premise data centers, to replacing high-carbon physical machines with their virtual equivalents and eliminating e-waste, cloud technology has the potential to help reduce greenhouse gas in many ways.
