New Resource Bank's Environmental Policy

We strive to incorporate sustainability into our core business operations through internal and external efforts. We will adopt the following practices:

  1. Reduce, reuse and recycle
  2. Purchase environmentally preferable products
  3. Conserve energy, water and natural resources
  4. Adhere to San Francisco Green Business program standards

Reduce, reuse, recycle

We will:

  • Strive to maintain a 90% diversion rate (waste not sent to the landfill) by recycling all resources such as paper, plastics, glass and aluminum AND composting all food and plant discards.
  • Reduce waste at the source by printing double-sided, buying in bulk and eliminating disposable products, such as dishes and single-serve water bottles.

Toxics reduction

We will minimize the use of toxic materials to protect employee health and the environment. Specifically:

  • Choose Green Seal–certified janitorial cleaning products and nontoxic dish and hand soaps.
  • Properly dispose of/recycle lightbulbs, batteries, aerosol cans, soft plastics and Styrofoam.

Environmentally preferable purchasing

We will purchase and use:

  • Remanufactured toner cartridges
  • Chlorine-free office paper and collateral with 100 percent recycled and post-consumer content (or tree-free paper)
  • Chlorine-free janitorial papers (toilet paper, paper towels, facial tissues, napkins) with 35–100 percent recycled content
  • Promotional materials and business cards with soy or low-VOC inks
  • Energy Star–rated appliances and office equipment
  • Highly water-efficient toilets, urinals and faucet aerators


We will conserve fossil fuels by:

  • Promoting the use of public transit and commuter alternatives
  • Offering commuter benefits
  • Participating in “spare the air” campaigns and providing emergency rides home
  • Offering City CarShare to all employees for meetings and appointments
  • Purchasing carbon offsets
  • Turning off lights, using energy-conserving hardware programs and unplugging equipment/switching off power strips whenever possible

We will strive to employ LEED green building standards when choosing a new site or remodeling an existing one.

Employee education

We will educate employees on resource conservation and pollution prevention through:

  • Hosting events with minimal waste, i.e., ensuring that little waste is generated during company events and meetings
  • Training programs or brown-bag sessions to educate employees on proper waste diversion practices and resource conservation ideas
  • Offering commuting incentives to encourage employees to take the bus, bike or walk to work
  • Informing employees of environmental issues in company newsletters, training material and staff meeting discussions
  • Sharing best practices with one another
