GLENWOOD SPRINGS — ColoradoBiz magazine recognized Alpine Bank as one of Colorado’s Top 50 Greenest Companies at the inaugural Green Colorado Awards on June 26 at the RedLine Gallery in downtown Denver.
Alpine Bank was the only bank recognized in a group of six organizations whose sustainable initiatives are setting new industry standards in the financial/consulting/professional services category. The other five organizations acknowledged in this group were the Brendle Group, First Affirmative Financial, GreenMont Capital Partners, Moye White and YR&G.
‘Green CREAM OF THE CROP’
“The event, participants and 50 designated organizations selected are the ‘green cream of the crop’ in Colorado. It is very gratifying to know that we are in such good company and that the bank is being recognized as helping make Colorado a better sustainable place for all of us and the next generation,” said David Miller, chairman of the Alpine Bank green team. “The fact that we were the only financial services provider selected is an exceptional affirmation of the collective efforts achieved by all of us at Alpine Bank.”
Alpine Bank’s environmental practices started as a grassroots effort by bank employees in 2003 and have evolved into a bank-wide “Environmental Management System.”
Additionally, in 2013 alone Alpine Bank contributed more than $145,000 to local environmental nonprofits through its Environment Loyalty Debit Card initiative. For more information about Alpine Bank’s environmental efforts, go to www.alpinebank.com.
