Harrington Bank Awarded Sustainable Business of the Year

Harrington Bank of Chapel Hill, NC is the first bank in the country to receive Green Plus certification. Along with this designation, Harrington Bank was awarded 2012 Sustainable Business of the Year.

Feb. 5, 2013 - PRLog -- Chapel Hill NC, January 31, 2013 – Harrington Bank was awarded Sustainable Business of the Year by the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday January 29, 2013.  Harrington Bank was recognized for its commitment to sustainability by completing Green Plus Certification in December 2012.  Green Plus Certification is a three-part certification indicative of an organization’s commitment to the full spectrum of sustainability: attention to people and planet, as well as performance.  Harrington Bank is the first bank in the country to complete Green Plus Certification.  
“We are thrilled that Harrington Bank was nominated and awarded Sustainable Business of the Year. We took a true leadership position in the financial industry to become the first bank in the country with Green Plus Certification,” commented Larry Loeser, President & CEO of Harrington Bank.  

Along with providing a uniquely service-oriented banking experience, Harrington Bank differentiates itself by being locally owned and managed with a focus on the community it serves.  One distinctive example of Harrington’s community focus is the Community Giving Program, in which the bank gives back to a customer selected non-profit organization for every personal account opened.

Retail Banking Manager Morgan Southerland remarked, “The achievements of Green Plus Certification and Sustainable Business of the Year have reinforced our internal efforts in sustainability and made our customers aware of our sustainable focus as well.  We recently introduced recycling containers in our lobbies and provide services such as eStatements to reduce paper.”
