  • Assiniboine Credit Union has surveyed employees on their commuting habits since 2009 and encourages them to reduce their carbon footprint with subsidized bus passes, support for a carpool matching service and bike racks at all branch locations, including the addition of showers and lockers at its new branches -- this dedicated focus has increased the number of alternative transit users to approximately half of its employees, which is well above the city's average of 20%
  • Assiniboine Credit Union continues to expand its recycling program as part of its annual "Eco-Action Plan" that forms part of its annual report -- employees help lead a number of in-house programs, including the head office's organic composting, ongoing paper reduction strategies, enhanced recycling programs for cellphones and batteries as well as electronic-waste through a partnership with the Electronics Recycling Association -- usable equipment is refurbished and donated to non-profit organizations
