The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, in cooperation with the Pollution Prevention Advisory Board and the Colorado Environmental Partnership, designated Alpine Bank a “Gold Leader” for its environmental leadership. Alpine Bank is the first financial institution in Colorado to be recognized with this award by the State for its environmental commitment and continuous improvement.

The Environmental Leadership Program (ELP) is a statewide environmental recognition and reward program administered by the Department of Public Health and Environment’s Sustainability Program. The ELP program offers benefits and incentives to members that voluntarily go beyond compliance with state and federal regulations and are committed to continual environmental improvement.
