Allegiance Bank is Going Green

Going Green

To commemorate Earth Day, Allegiance Bank has launched a “going green” initiative. No matter how your business chooses to “go green,” introducing a green initiative to your workplace means you are working towards effectively reducing your carbon footprint. By reducing the amount of energy that your business is consuming, you are not only contributing to a cleaner environment, but positively impacting your business’s bottom line.

There are many green workplace initiatives that can be both simple and cost-effective to implement. Building sustainable practices happens over time and requires developing a plan of action about how the business intends to achieve its goals. According to Forbes, here are a few proven methods businesses can leverage to go green.

  • Eliminate plastic by asking employees to bring in their own reusable utensils and straws.
  • Start with an energy audit. An energy audit can lead to recommendations for lighting efficiencies that also deliver cost savings over the long term.
  • Have a ‘lights off’ policy. These power savings not only collectively reduce demand for energy and significantly reduce your carbon footprint, but they will also increase your bottom line. Use sensors or AI to shut off lights (and screens) when they’re not needed.
  • Go digital. The use of digital ordering, invoicing, inventory management and supply chain platforms will help businesses avoid hard copies exchanging hands and will reduce operational expenses.

Ways Allegiance Bank is Going Green

At Allegiance Bank, we’re committed to adopting environmentally friendly policies that help protect the environment and sustain its natural resources for generations to come. We’ve launched a green initiative and several of our Allegiance Bankers have formed a green committee. Our “Green Team” will regularly host meetings where we identify new environmentally friendly opportunities, establish green procedures and examine cost-cutting savings for the future.

Most recently, our Green Team consulted with Alex Sowyrda, President of Roots Clean Energy, on Allegiance Bank’s environmentally friendly initiatives. “Allegiance has a vision. They know they want to be an environmental steward and they are coming up with a plan in order to put their words into actions.”

At this point in time, several of our departments have changed out their printers to print two-sided and in black and white only. We’ve also initiated the use of reusable drinkware options and are eliminating styrofoam and plastic cups in our breakrooms. We’re excited to start out making these simple changes that will positively impact our environment and bottom line.

Additionally, some of our offices will be hosting Community Shred Days, where we have invited our community members to bring paper documents that will be shredded and recycled. These socially distanced shredding events will be open to the public on several upcoming dates.

We’re looking forward to identifying opportunities to go green in the future and contributing positively to the environment.
