Our Approach to Environmental Sustainability

At U.S. Bank, we believe we can help protect and conserve our natural resources by:

  • developing less resource-intensive business practices.
  • embracing opportunities for financial products and services that incorporate features or benefits for reduced environmental impact.
  • investing in environmentally beneficial business opportunities.
  • engaging and educating employees and customers.

Please take a moment to review the documents below, which provide more detailed information on our approach and our progress. They highlight some of our initiatives and successes, and include details about changes in our business practices, the environmentally beneficial products and services we offer to our customers, and how we significantly surpassed our original $1 billion commitment to invest in environmentally beneficial, profitable business opportunities by 2015.

These updates build on the 2007 introduction of our Environmental Sustainability Policy (PDF)1 (a summary of which is included in our 2007 Corporate Citizenship Report (PDF)).1

In recognition of our efforts, U.S. Bank has received the following accolades in 2012:

  • Named one of America's Greenest Banks by Bank Technology News, a subsidiary of American Banker, for the second year in a row.
  • Ranked 61st out of the top 500 largest U.S. companies on Newsweek's Green Rankings list.
Get Green with US

At U.S. Bank we’re committed to reducing our environmental impact while creating opportunities for our customers, employees, suppliers and communities to do the same. Our environmental call to action, Get Green with US, extends an invitation for all these partners to join in our sustainability efforts. An integral part of this commitment is to provide information and resources to help our customers understand and reduce their impact.

Resources for Consumers

We offer several tools to help our customers reduce paper waste and otherwise bank greener.

  • Green Auto Loan

    U.S. Bank and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) want to help you save fuel, money and the environment. We'll reduce the interest rate by 0.50% when you finance the purchase of a new or used EPA Certified SmartWay® vehicle or truck for yourself or for your small business.

    The EPA Green Vehicle Guide can help you identify the cleanest and most fuel-efficient vehicle that meets your needs.

  • We have some exciting new products on the horizon that will utilize the newest technology to help customers save time, paper and gas.
