Environmental Responsibility

Doing our part

Ensuring that Assiniboine Credit Union members have a healthy environment to live in, is an important way for us to serve our members and contribute to our communities while gaining business efficiencies that also benefit our members. Our members shape who we are and how we behave; they have the right to know that our actions align with their values.

ACU won the 2017 National Credit Union Social Responsibility Award for the incredible results we achieved in reducing our Greenhouse Gas emissions by 56% since 2012, and we were named as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers for the 5th year in a row.
