Alpine Bank honored for environmental achievements

Named a Gold Leader – the highest level possible

Alpine Bank has been recognized for outstanding environmental achievements that help keep Colorado a great place to work and live.

In partnership with the Pollution Prevention Advisory Board and the Colorado Environmental Partnership, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment presented the 16th annual Environmental Leadership Awards at the Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum Oct. 16 in Denver. The awards recognized 160 Colorado organizations with gold, silver and bronze designations for voluntarily going beyond compliance with the state and federal regulations and for their commitment to continual environmental improvement.

Matt Teeters, Alpine Bank Union Station president, and David Miller, Alpine Bank Green Team chairperson and senior vice president, represented the bank at the event.

“It was very gratifying joining more than 500 other Colorado environmental leaders to share ideas and experiences on ways to reduce resource use and save money while protecting our lifestyle,” Miller said.

Alpine Bank was acknowledged as a Gold Leader – the highest level possible. First achieving gold designation in 2008, Alpine Bank is the only financial institution that participates in the Colorado Environmental Leadership Program.

At Alpine Bank, what started as a grassroots effort by bank employees in 2003 has evolved into an extensive, bankwide Environmental Management System, which has greatly reduced the bank’s environmental footprint and has been recognized since 2006 with ISO 14001 certification – the universally recognized standard for environmental management.
