As Bank of America employees, we represent the values and actions of a company that truly believes that what’s good for the planet and what’s good for business fit hand in hand. There are many ways to embody this principle including buying and consuming environmentally-responsible products. Many items on this Web site, indicated by a green leaf symbol, were designed to help us all reduce, reuse and recycle. Click here to view the complete product offering.
Perhaps the most significant environmental impact made by the Bank of America Store is the elimination of printed catalogs for associates. Converting to electronic catalogs has saved 366,800 pounds of paper annually. To reduce our carbon footprint, we have discontinued the use of outbound package paper inserts and relocated our warehouse distribution center from Woodinville, WA to Indianapolis, IN. And nearly all notepads, greetings cards and other paper products sold by the Store are printed on recycled paper.
In January 2013, Bank of America launched a 10-year, $50 billion environmental business initiative to address climate change and demands on natural resources, while advancing a low-carbon economy. The new goal reflects the completion of our previous 10-year, $20 billion environmental business initiative — more than four years ahead of schedule. The new 10-year goal consists primarily of lending, equipment finance, capital markets and advisory activity, carbon finance, and advice and investment solutions for clients in projects that have a positive, measurable environmental impact.
