We lead by example.
We take our role as a leading community bank seriously. And that role transcends what you might initially think. It's not just about being a bank; it's about being a community member – one that leads by example and helps drive local economic success. Below are just a few examples of how we do it.
In 2012, Simsbury Bank volunteered over 3,500 hours in and around the communities we serve.
Paper consumption has been significantly reduced throughout our offices by utilizing several innovative practices and technology.
Green cleaning products are used at our branches.
- All cardboard is recycled at our corporate administrative offices.
- Over 90% of the paper waste is recycled at all of our branches and our corporate administrative offices.
- Incandescent lighting is continuing to be phased out with emphasis on upgrades to more energy efficient lighting.
- Our corporate administrative offices will be completing building energy efficient HVAC upgrades in early 2014, including the installation of a building energy management system to reduce the consumption of electricity and natural gas used to heat and cool the building.
