Environment & Sustainability Committee

The Environment & Sustainability committee’s goal is to lead company initiatives focused on lowering emissions and working towards a greener, more sustainable future.

In 2023:

  • The committee championed the creation of the Net Zero Deposit Fund (NZDF), allowing customers to direct their deposits towards net zero projects that reduce, remove, or avoid carbon emissions, such as energy reduction and efficiency, green buildings, renewable energy and clean transportation.
  • Two employees earned their Sustainability and Climate Risk (SCR) certification. This certification is administered by the Global Association for Risk Professionals.
  • The committee led a project to install a USAGAIN clothing donation and recycling bin at our corporate offices in St. Paul.
