Alpine bank recognized for efforts to offset greenhouse gas emissions

Alpine Bank was among three businesses and a university in Colorado recently recognized for consistently purchasing carbon offsets.

Alpine Bank, Go Alpine, KeyBank and the University of Colorado at Boulder were recognized at a recent reception in Denver hosted by the Colorado Carbon Fund. The CCF helps businesses, event planners and individuals measure, reduce and offset carbon emissions through a statewide voluntary program.

Hillary Dobos, CCF program manager, said the four organizations have played a large role in reducing so-called greenhouse gases in Colorado by more than 55 million pounds. “The Colorado Carbon Fund is an example of how Colorado citizens and businesses have come together to voluntarily support clean energy in Colorado,” Dobos said.
