The banking industry has always been about “the green,” but thanks to the evolution of environmentally friendly business practices, it’s taken on a new meaning. Suffolk Federal Credit Union, with branches in Southampton and Riverhead, is adopting environmentally friendly or “green” business practices, which are designed to minimize the impact on the local environment and to cut down on costs and resources. This, in turn, is putting more life back into the communities that credit unions serve.
In Eastport, branch manager Laura Sferruzzo presented a $1000 contribution to the Eastport Green Project.
“Supporting an organization right here in our back yard is extremely rewarding,” said Sferruzzo. “It’s wonderful that so many people in our local neighborhoods lend a hand to this beautification project, which makes Eastport a great place to live and visit. At Suffolk Federal, we’re proud to be part of that.”
“The Eastport Green Project continues to grow each year as the community comes together to maintain the unique characteristics that make Eastport such an amazing small town with a big heart,” said co-founders Heather Spagnoli and Stephanie Turano. “This donation will help support several projects in beautifying the hamlet of Eastport and we truly appreciate the generosity shown by Suffolk Federal.”
“We are constantly striving to incorporate more environmentally-friendly practices into our everyday operations and across all of our branch locations,” explained Ralph Spencer, president and CEO of Suffolk Federal. “We are also embracing state-of-the-art technology that can help lower the need for paper consumption, speed up the transaction process, reduce energy consumption, save valuable resources and, at the same time, improve member service and credit union response times,” he said.
