Our approach to environmental responsibility

At U.S. Bank, we care deeply about promoting sustainable business practices while supporting economic growth. It’s one of the reasons that we have invested more than $18 billion in environmentally beneficial business opportunities over the past 10 years. We recently joined the Ceres Company Network to engage with more than 50 companies in more than 20 sectors on environmental issues. Additionally, we’re proud to have received a score of A- from CDP (formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project) in both 2016 and 2017.

We’re a national leader in community solar garden development. And our 2017 renewable energy investments of $2.9 billion helped power more than 260,000 homes and employ more than 27,000 people. The carbon offset of these investments is equal to removing 668,000 passenger vehicles from the road or planting 3.6 million acres of forest. We are also committed to operating in a more sustainable manner. Our goal is to reduce operational greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 40 percent by 2029 and 60 percent by 2044.
