GreenTeamLogo Since 2d Quarter 2009, Alpine Bank has been powered by 100% renewable “green” electric power at all locations, including Telluride. Also in 2009, Alpine Bank in Telluride was awarded LEED-CI Silver certification by the U.S. Green Building Council. Alpine Banks in Telluride, Durango, Summit County, Steamboat, Vail/Eagle Valley, and the Roaring Fork Valley participated in the Colorado Association of Ski Towns CAST Plastic Bag Challenge. Alpine Bank donated $5,000 for solar panel installation to a local school that would be chosen in the town of the Challenge winner. In February 2010, Alpine Bank in Ridgway became the third Alpine Bank facility awarded LEED Silver building certification by the U.S. Green Building Council.

Put the words “green” and “bank” in one sentence and the reference is clear: we are talking about money. Alpine Bank, however, is a leader statewide in championing better stewardship of environmental resources. “Green” and “bank” may rhyme with “sustainability.”

Telluride Alpine Bank’s “Green Team Experience” is the topic of Green Business Roundtable #7, Friday, August 6, 8:30 a.m. in the Program Room at the five-star Wilkinson Public Library. The presenters for GBR #7 are David Miller, Alpine Bank, Assistant Vice President of Business Development and Green Team Chairperson and Audrey Morton, Alpine Bank’s Operations Supervisor and San Juan Green Team Representative.   The goal of the presentation is to inspire other Telluride regional businesses to gain the benefits that result from implementing an Environmental Management System (EMS) and the ROI, the Return On Investment  associated with “greening your business.” Interested Business owners and staff, non-profits and community members are invited to attend.

The 2010 GBR series is hosted by The New Community Coalition (TNCC) & Wilkinson Public Library, with assistance from the Telluride Foundation and Telluride Inside… and Out. There is no cost to attend and breakfast is provided, although donations are greatly appreciated.

Please RSVP by 4:00 pm Aug. 5 (so there is enough food!) @ 728-1340 or admin.tncc@gmail.com.  Q&A and Networking will follow the one-hour presentation until 10:00 a.m.
