Fidelity Family Launches ‘Green’ Policy Initiative

November 19, 2009

Fidelity National Financial announced that its title insurance underwriters – Chicago Title, Fidelity National Title, Ticor Title, Security Union Title, Lawyers Title, Commonwealth Title and Alamo Title – will follow an enhanced effort to implement energy saving and environmentally friendly policies. The FNF Green Title & Settlement Program (GTSP) will be initially launched in Northern California and the Pacific Northwest.

"The public is more aware of the need to protect our environment, and consumers are increasingly supporting sustainability measures in their homes and businesses. We want them to know that FNF stands behind the importance of this initiative, and with our leadership in this program we are raising the bar within our family of company's and our industry," said Jeff Knudson, executive vice president of the Fidelity National Title Group.

Recently, FNF announced that quarterly statements for the Group 401(k) Profit Sharing Plan and FNF Employee Stock Purchase Plan quarterly statements will no longer be mailed to employees at home but will be available online.

The GTSP encourages the use of state of the art technology that is available to both customers and FNTG title offices. In addition to the use of the latest technology, title offices will implement more aggressive and comprehensive policies that are environmentally friendly and will develop online information to inform employees and members of the public on best practices that better protect our natural resources.

"Our goal is to expand sustainability practices and to play a bigger role in protecting our natural resources," said Pablo Wong, senior vice president for market development and project leader for this program.
