Corporate social responsibility is a primary tenet at Alpine Bank. In 2006, the Green Team was developed to help us do our part in conservation. We strive to sustain a healthy, clean environment for employees, customers, shareholders and the communities we serve.
“Being green and sustainable isn’t just about reducing carbon levels or water use,” says Vice Chairman/President Glen Jammaron. “It’s got to make sense from an overall standpoint: for the bank and for the community. Things like reusing and recycling. Sustainability is really a return to a lot of practices that a lot of people did for generations.”
Alpine Bank is the only financial institution in the U.S. that has earned the International Standards Organization (ISO) 14001 Certification, a globally recognized standard of excellence for environmental management.
I’m grateful to work for a company that shares a similar passion for our environment. I was very excited that a Green Team was started back in 2006, and together we have accomplished some wonderful things.

As a lifelong volunteer with nonprofit organizations that support sustainable recreation, our family moved to the Vail Valley in 1999 to hike and ski. It is incredibly satisfying to be a Green Team leader helping our customers and communities save money through effective stewardship of our natural resources while protecting our outdoor lifestyle.

One of the reasons I pursued a career at Alpine Bank is because of its/our commitment to the environment. Business is more than just about making a profit. It’s about taking care of people and the environment in which we work, live and play. Look out the window – it’s beautiful! I’m a believer in doing what we can to keep it that way. Our local economies and communities here in Colorado depend on it.

Protecting the environment has always been a priority for me. When I started working for Alpine Bank, I was excited to know that the company I worked for shared my concern for the environment. This is just one of the core values of Alpine Bank that has led me to consider banking a career instead of just a job!
