We are committed to sustainable initiatives and have been named both a 2011 Mpower ChaMpion and a 2011 EPA Green Power Partner.
The 2011 Mpower ChaMpion Program is a free, voluntary carbon reduction program for Madison-area businesses. The credit union was one of
18 businesses selected. Businesses that receive this recognition are committed to reducing their carbon footprint, including the use of energy,
water, transportation and waste. Through the program, the credit union commits to sustainability initiatives and receives tools and support to
complete them. The Mpower ChaMpion program is sponsored by the U.S. EPA, City of Madison, Campos Comprehensive Engineering and Focus on Energy.
UW Credit Union was also named a 2011 EPA Green Power Partner. The Green Power Partnership is a free, voluntary program that encourages organizations
to buy green power as a way to reduce the environmental impacts associated with purchased electricity use. The credit union was selected because
57.2% of the electricity we use for our branch network has been generated from renewable resources, such as wind power. We are the first credit
union in the country and the first financial institution in the state to achieve this designation.
