More green projects bloom among CUs
MADISON, Wis. (1/14/08)--More credit unions are engaging in green practices and projects to help the environment. Credit Union Resources Inc., the wholly-owned service corporation of the Texas Credit Union League (TCUL), announced that it partnered with Affiliated Power Purchasers International (APPI) in October. The AAPI Savings Solution program assists TCUL members in reducing electricity and natural gas costs (LoneStar Leaguer Jan. 9). The program will provide cost-savings benefits to credit unions, said Tom Doge, senior vice president and chief sales officer for Credit Union Resources. “Anything that reduces the operational expenses of a credit union is good for the members too.” The Pennsylvania Credit Union Association (PCUA) announced it is looking for volunteers to serve on a green advisory committee. Members will discuss how credit unions can be leaders in going green and protecting the environment (Life is a Highway Jan. 3). The latest segment of Pennsylvania Newsmakers, sponsored by the PCUA, featured PCUA President/CEO Jim McCormack and the Pennsylvania Credit Union Foundation Executive Director Joe Wambach discussing the PCUA’s “go green” initiative (Life is a Highway Jan. 4). Redwood CU in Santa Rosa, Calif., recently earned a Top Commercial Real Estate Projects of 2007 award from the North Bay Business Journal. The award recognized the credit union for “Green Reuse,” or taking an existing commercial building and remodeling it to be environmentally responsible.
