At First Interstate Bank we take sustainability seriously. We integrate social and environmental considerations into our core business strategy and corporate values.
Our First Interstate Bank Sustainability Team, staffed by employees from across all branches and departments, coordinates and guides us in reducing the environmental impact of our operations. This includes waste reduction, energy usage, paper consumption and recycling.
Since 2008, First Interstate Bank has been tracking the energy performance of our facilities using the Energy Star Portfolio Manager System. We recently replaced our employees’ computers with 1,700 new Energy Star compliant desktop computers which will reduce our energy usage.
First Interstate Bank has developed green account options so that our customers can join us in saving precious natural resources.
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is an internationally recognized green building certification system, providing third-party verification that a building was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance in areas that matter most: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.
First Interstate Bank's participation in the voluntary and technically rigorous LEED process demonstrates leadership, innovation and environmental stewardship. We are proud of the work we are doing both within our communities and within the bank to make our world a better place.
