GTE Green Initiatives
Meeting today’s needs without compromising tomorrow’s resources is what environmental sustainability is all about. Going green is a GTE Financial organizational initiative we're passionate about. From our offices to your home office, our mission is to continually find and introduce ways we can reduce our footprint and do our part to protect the environment together.
Ways GTE has gone green:
- Our management team uses electronic tablets instead of numerous print-outs
- Plastic, glass, aluminum and paper recycling bins are available to all employees
- GTE staff regularly volunteers at cleanups in the community
- Our ATMs are envelope-free
Your Green Partner
Part of GTE’s green focus is encouraging our members and community businesses to join us. We recently partnered with local, ecologically like-minded companies, and have introduced other ways we can all make a difference every day.
Ways GTE helps you get green:
- By offering our members FREE premium online and electronic services, we can provide convenient alternatives to driving to a location or receiving paper in the mail
- We offer shred events to members where personal, paper documents are destroyed and recycled responsibly
- GTE staff participates in cleanup events in our community
- Our eNewsletter is electronic so you get it instantly and paper-free
