Voya Financial, Inc. (NYSE: VOYA), which is rebranding from ING U.S., is a premier retirement, investment, and insurance company with more than 13 million individual and institutional customers. Voya is committed to achieving its vision to be America’s Retirement CompanyTM and to help Americans build a secure financial future – one person, one family, one institution at a time. The company is also committed to critically reviewing business activities to discover ways it can make a positive impact on the environment.
Upon establishing benchmarks for environmental sustainability in 2007, Voya identified various opportunities to reduce waste and energy/paper consumption including: green power purchasing of 100 percent wind energy credits to offset its entire U.S. operation; increased use of video conferencing equipment instead of traveling and expansion of Voya’s “Virtually Orange” remote workforce; significant materials recycling programs including e-waste and food waste programs; purchasing 30 percent PCW minimum and FSC certified paper.
As a result of these efforts, Voya Financial has achieved a 39 percent reduction in energy use, a 62 percent decline in landfill waste from its major offices, and a 64 percent decrease in paper consumption.
