Our Green Initiatives
Boulder Valley Credit Union's eco-friendly efforts are based upon programs designed to further our culture of environmental responsibility within the communities we serve. We are seeking to promote and encourage our members, partners, and other financial institutions to help reduce the footprint we leave on our environment.
We Care Colorado
Because our green initiatives are so expansive, we developed a secondary website that details all of our eco-efforts and eco-product offerings. Additionally, we list out all of our eco-business partners and provide access to an eco-resource center.

In June 2007, Boulder Valley Credit Union installed a 10-kilowatt Sun Power solar electric system on the roof of our Main Branch at 55th and Arapahoe in Boulder. The solar electric system produces clean, emission-free solar electricity, thereby offsetting 14 tons of CO2 pollution each year for the 30-40 year life of the system. This is equivalent to planting 1,078 total trees or equivalent to reducing 30,500 auto traveling miles per year.
