Seacoast Bank’s commitment to communities means investing in our customers and the places where they live. One way we do that is by making the environment a priority and incorporating ecological sustainability efforts into our day-to-day operations. We monitor our material waste and recycling output along with our consumption of power and water, taking steps to reduce our footprint. We’ve also implemented programs to reduce waste in the process of servicing and communicating with customers.
And in 2019, our plans expand. Just a few of our scheduled initiatives taking place at branches and administrative offices include new LED lighting upgrades, efficient HVAC unit improvements, and replacing urinals and toilets with low flow models, as well as installation of water bottle refilling stations to reduce the use of plastic water bottles. We view these efforts as a journey and are confident we’re headed in the right direction. Even so, we humbly admit there are several miles to go before these sustainability efforts are fully developed. We look forward to sharing more news of the milestones we reach on the road ahead.
