Business Growth That Provides Climate Change Solutions 

“This webinar will be a forum to discuss the compelling business opportunities a warming climate can provide financial institutions,” said Jason MacDuff, greenpenny Vice President.  “Research and experience demonstrates that it’s time for banks to think beyond implementing environmental policies for their operations and offer green products and services that empower customers to take their own climate actions.  We’re doing that at greenpenny, and we welcome the growing number of companies in this space.”


Where You Bank Matters

In addition to financing solar energy systems to power homes, businesses small and large, non-profits and farms in the Midwest, people across the nation can bank with virtual, carbon neutral greenpenny.  Customers enjoy competitive rates, features and experiences with greenpenny’s checking, savings and CD accounts.
