At U.S. Bank, we embrace our responsibility to be a good steward of the environment. It’s one of the reasons we’ve invested more than $20.5 billion in environmentally beneficial business opportunities since 2008, and why we were named a World’s Most Ethical Company by the Ethisphere Institute for the fifth year in a row.
We’re continuously working on reducing our impact on the environment. We do this by decreasing our use of natural resources, implementing environmentally responsible business practices, developing products and services that help our customers reduce their carbon footprint, investing in new products, services, and partnerships like renewable energy, and increasing our due diligence around lending in high impact industries. Our approach isn’t just better for the environment, it’s also a smarter way of doing business.
“We strive to be a responsible steward of the environment and acknowledge that we have a responsibility to our customers, employees, investors and the communities that we serve to better understand the impact of our operations on global climate change and to help reduce that impact.”
U.S. Bank Chairman, President and CEO
U.S. Bank leads and participates in numerous initiatives to become more environmentally responsible, including setting goals to measure our progress. We track and monitor energy consumption and carbon emissions and build new U.S. Bank branches to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified standards.
We’ve committed to reducing our operational greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 40% by 2029 and 60% by 2044, using a 2014 baseline.
The U.S. Bank Environmental Responsibility Policy is the centerpiece for our sustainability governance and guides us in improving our sustainability efforts today and in the future. We review our practices and policy every quarter and look for additional opportunities to make a positive impact.
We work hard to continuously strengthen our environmental governance and programs, which has been recognized through a significant increase in our CDP (formerly known as Carbon Disclosure Project) grade over the past few years. We’re proud to have received an A- from CDP in both 2016, 2017 and 2018.
