Stewart Title of California's San Diego Division Gets "Green Certified"

The title insurance industry isn't generally thought of as environmentally friendly. And, for good reason – the traditional title and escrow processes are extremely paper intensive and involve lots of paperwork being sent back and forth as well as a good bit of driving around for those involved in each transaction. The carbon footprint of the process has not, historically, been a small one. We're working to change that. The goal of our Green Initiative is to make our offices as well as the real estate transaction eco-friendly.

We have created proprietary technology and programs that enable the entire real estate transaction – from contract to post-close – to be entirely paperless and to be managed using web-based software. One example of that technology is our online transaction management program, SureClose®. This technology not only saves trees, it reduces the carbon emissions associated with the process. We've also created a rating system to judge our offices and provide official recognition for eco-friendly practices.

Some of the steps we've taken within our offices are:
  • Using the SureClose® document management system to reduce paper usage
  • Providing customers with the option of electronic document delivery
  • Organizing green events such as waste and litter removal
  • Participating in recycling programs
  • Reducing unnecessary printing
  • Using energy efficient light bulbs
