GLENWOOD SPRINGS — Alpine Bank is among this year’s nominees for the International Green Industry Hall of Fame. The 2015 Hall of Fame inductees will be recognized at the group’s sixth annual conference and induction ceremony March 9 in Clovis, California.

Each year, the International Green Industry Hall of Fame seeks nominations from the public for individuals or businesses that are working toward an environmentally sustainable future. The 2015 nominees feature 30 pioneers, leaders and innovators in sustainability. “It is humbling and very exciting for an employee-owned regional community bank from western Colorado to be nominated for possible inclusion in the International Green Industry Hall of Fame,” said David Miller, senior vice president and leader of the Alpine Bank Green Team. “Alpine Bank’s Green Team, birthed in 2003, has always tried to ‘think globally, while acting locally,’ but we never dreamed that our local efforts to save money by reducing our environmental footprint and protecting our outdoor lifestyle might be recognized by an international group.”

Alpine Bank is a $2.7 billion, employee-owned organization chartered in 1973 with headquarters in Glenwood Springs. With 38 offices across Colorado, Alpine Bank employs nearly 600 people and serves more than 130,000 customers with retail, business, wealth management, mortgage and electronic banking services.
