Our Approach to Environmental Responsibility
At U.S. Bank, we care deeply about promoting sustainable business practices while supporting economic growth – it is one of the reasons that we have invested more than $15.5 billion in environmentally beneficial business opportunities over the past several years. It is also one of the reasons U.S. Bank was named a World’s Most Ethical Company by the Ethisphere Institute for the third year in a row.
Since we serve a broad spectrum of enterprises across a diverse array of industries –we embrace a balanced approach as we address climate change and the needs of our communities, customers, employees and shareholders.
U.S. Bank embraces our responsibility to be a good steward of our natural resources. We have implemented a 'continuous improvement' approach by protecting and conserving our natural resources through methods such as:
- Developing business practices that protect and conserve our natural resources.
- Embracing opportunities for new products, services and partnerships that improve how environmentally sustainable we are.
- Adopting new technologies, such as renewable resources, that continue to reduce our carbon footprint.
Many of these approaches can create long-term value for our stakeholders through increased revenues, reduced costs and reduced risks. But just as importantly, these tactics can help improve the world we all share. So let’s enable our potential to be more environmentally friendly, both globally and locally.
