Sustainability and the Environment
Bank First is an ethical bank committed to safeguarding the future of the community.
As part of our efforts to promote sustainability and the environment we:
Take an ethical approach to investing.
Communicate with customers (where possible) electronically, to keep our paper usage to a minimum.
Print brochures and promotional materials on recycled or carbon neutral stock.
Incorporate more efficient business practices in our offices such as better waste management, reduced printing, installation of rain water tanks, use of recycled materials and enhanced lighting.
Have environmentally friendly product options, such as our Green Car Loan.
Encourage sustainability education in our schools and preschools by supporting awards and grants, such as the ResourceSmart Education Awards.
Never satisfied with standing still, we are constantly exploring new ways to incorporate environmental and sustainable initiatives into our daily business operations.
