We believe in making our community a healthier place to live and work, and that means investing in environmentally friendly practices. It’s already making a difference: we’ve lowered our water usage by nearly 35%, reduced our electricity usage by nearly 30% and reduced carbon dioxide emissions by 95%. Thanks to our commitment to 100% green power, UW Credit Union was the first credit union in the nation to receive the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Leadership Award.
We also try to lessen our impact on the environment in other ways, from hosting a Madison B-cycle station to promote bike-sharing to recycling 90 percent of old materials during a recent remodel of our headquarters. We’re proud to be a leader in environmental sustainability and hope to inspire others to join us in this mission.
