Alpine Bank has retained its certification for meeting international standards for environmental management.

Alpine Bank has been certified to maintain its International Standards Organization (ISO) 14001 designation. Alpine Bank first earned the designation in 2006 and has maintained it since then.

David Miller, a senior vice president who also serves as chairman of the Green Team at Alpine Bank, said the ISO designation challenges the bank to continuously improve its environmental practices. “This translates into increased clean energy use, greater energy conservation, enhanced recycling and use of green cleaning products at Alpine Bank, all of which help protect our Colorado lifestyle and save money.”

Bob Young, founder and chairman of Alpine Bank, said he’s proud the bank remains the only financial institution based in the United States that’s earned the distinction. “We’re even more proud that we achieved this designation through the ongoing efforts of Alpine Bank’s Green Team.”

The ISO, the world’s largest standards developing organization, has published more than 19,000 international standards since 1947. KPMG, an internationally accredited ISO auditor, audited Alpine Bank as part of the recertification process and visited seven bank locations to ensure practices were implemented.

Headquartered in Glenwood Springs, Alpine Bank operates 40 locations and employs nearly 750 people across Colorado. For more information, log on to
