SUMMARY

With a growing presence in the Fox Valley region of Wisconsin, Evergreen Credit Union’s mission continues to become clearer and stronger. Environmental concerns are becoming the number one priority for many Americans today. It’s what people care about and spend their free time volunteering for when they can. As Evergreen Credit Union continued growing, it wanted to better service members in a natural and sustainable way that stays true to its company mission. In February 2021, it opened its second branch in a prime location and is now meeting members right where they live, work, shop and go to school.

Building for a sustainable future

Not only was this branch location built with member convenience in mind, but it was designed for sustainability and to live up to its mission of becoming the most environmentally responsible credit union in the nation. This incredible mission is one of the most unique qualities about Evergreen Credit Union, and although only less than 2,000 square feet, this branch packs quite the environmentally friendly punch from the inside out.

Evergreen’s new Appleton location was built with solar panels, undoubtedly increasing the building’s property value. Having a solar energy system not only ensures low energy costs, but it improves their image as a green company. Like any other commercial building utilizing solar energy, it’s unlikely that it will go completely off the grid – the interconnected network for electricity delivery. However, solar energy systems do replace the majority of electricity usage with renewable sources, feeding the forward-thinking objectives for this green credit union.
