Voya is committed to achieving its vision to be America’s Retirement Company™ and to help Americans build a secure financial future - one person, one family, one institution at a time.

Upon establishing benchmarks for environmental sustainability in 2007, Voya identified various opportunities to reduce waste, energy and 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 to avoid emissions caused by business travel and expansion of Voya’s “Virtually Orange” remote workforce; significant material recycling programs, including e-waste and food waste; purchasing a minimum of 30 percent PCW and FSC certified paper.
As a result of these efforts, Voya Financial has achieved a 39 percent reduction in energy use, a 64 percent decline in landfill waste from its major offices, and a 71 percent decrease in paper consumption.
