Throughout our 39-year history, Alpine Bank has partnered in things that make our commuities better. Alpine Bank operates 39 distinct and separate locations throughout western and southwestern Colorado with over 520 employee-owners. Our formalized Green Team ensures our organization is accountable to our Environmental Management System and our Environmental Policy. In 2006, Alpine Bank became the first and only known U.S.-owned bank to earn ISO 14001 certification. Where possible, Alpine Bank buys 100 percent green electric power directly from our utility providers. At locations where utilities do not yet offer green power as an option, Alpine Bank obtains carbon offsets through a donation to a Colorado nonprofit. Our annual donation is used to support energy efficiency and renewable energy projects in our state. Additionally, we support the concept of "distributed energy." Since 2008, we've begun to produce a small amount of our own clean, renewable power by adding solar electric panels to our buildings in Rifle South, Silt, and Glenwood Springs. These new systems produce enough electricity to power five homes.
