Ranking Was Based on Environmental, Social and Governance Policies

Columbus, Ga., August 24, 2010 — TSYS announced today that it has been named among the top 20 percent of publicly held companies throughout the Southeast region for corporate responsibility and sustainability.

Ranked by Boston-based KLD Research & Analytics, Inc., which also rates Newsweek’s Top 500 Green U.S. companies, TSYS was recognized with the highest honor for environmental, social and governance factors and policies in the first annual Southeastern Corporate Sustainability Rankings.

In 2008, TSYS founded a sustainability committee, TSYS Green, to focus on reducing its global environmental impact by promoting corporate responsibility among its team members and in the communities where it has a local presence.

The company also participates in a number of efforts to promote education, non-profit and community initiatives. Last year TSYS employees collectively donated more than $1 million to United Way, and the company has received numerous awards for its Partners in Education initiative in support of local schools.

“Service to others is more than a philosophy, it’s our responsibility,”  said Philip W. Tomlinson, chairman of the board and chief executive officer of TSYS. “We are pleased to receive this recognition for our efforts in sustainability, and are proud to have the opportunity to contribute to the well-being and growth of our local communities.”

The rankings were published in May 2010 to establish a legacy of corporate and social responsibility and advance efforts in the use of renewable, efficiency energy sources in the Southeast. As a result of being ranked among the top 20 percent, TSYS also attended the group’s C-Suite and Sustainability Breakfast, which featured discussions about practical green and sustainable solutions to help reduce risk, meet compliance, and create market opportunities.
