With more than 80 years of heritage focused on helping people secure a better financial future, we are also dedicated to protecting our environment for future generations. We continuously work to enhance the performance of our ENERGY STAR® buildings, embrace responsible sourcing, capitalize on our green space and engage our employees in sustainable practices.
Our employees are some of CUNA Mutual Group’s greatest assets in reducing our environmental footprint. They commit every year to reducing waste, recycling and traveling green — taking the bus, biking, carpooling, walking and/or telecommuting. In an effort to reduce paper consumption, we offer paperless policy delivery for most product lines and our employees commit to looking for ways to share information electronically whenever possible.
Welcome to Solar Power
In September 2017, we broke ground to implement solar power(Opens in new window) at our Waverly, Iowa, location. The system is projected to produce more than 400,000 kilowatts of power in its first year. This represents approximately 20% of our Waverly facility’s total power use.
Over the course of the system’s 25-year life expectancy, we’ll reduce our carbon footprint by more than 9,000 tons of carbon dioxide. That’s equivalent to:
- Planting more than 200,000 trees
- Recycling some 28,000 tons of waste, instead of sending it to a landfill
- Displacing carbon dioxide emissions from the annual electrical use of about 1,000 homes
- More than 8,000,000 pounds of coal burned
