NCUA reports on green progress on Earth Day
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (4/25/11)--The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) celebrated Earth Day by hailing the increased success of its "greeNCUA" initiative, a project that the agency said has “produced tangible results aimed at protecting the planet.” “Everyone knows that NCUA works to ensure that credit unions remain in the black. NCUA, however, also works to go green each day of the year,” said NCUA Chairman Debbie Matz. The agency in a release noted that it recycled 43.5 tons of paper in 2010 and earlier this year encouraged its employees to bring in their own personal outdated or nonworking electronics, cables, CDs, and DVDs for proper recycling or destruction. Matz in the release said that she hopes credit unions will follow the NCUA’s lead and adopt green practices. “Earth Day is a great opportunity for everyone to make lasting changes that conserve our limited resources for future generations. One easy way for credit unions to cut paper use and to learn about NCUA’s work even earlier is to sign up for NCUA Express. In the near future, NCUA will expand this service to do even more to protect the environment,” Matz added. The NCUA Express system saves paper by directly communicating with credit unions via email. The greeNCUA initiative was launched in late 2009, and resulted in new recycling programs, energy-efficiency improvements and increased communication about environmental concerns at the NCUA.
