PNC Financial - the greenest bank in the world

Pittsburgh's PNC Financial Services, which, after its acquisition of Cleveland based National City is now among the largest banks in the US, is, without a doubt, the greenest bank in the world. Not only does PNC have the most LEED certified bank branches, it even trademarked the term "Green Branch." Something even cooler for those of us who work in or do business in downtown Pittsburgh - PNC has recently announced that it will install what will be the largest "living wall" in North America, with a 2400 square foot green wall planned to go up on their headquarters, which is located at the corners of downtown's Fifth Avenue and Wood Street. Fast Company has more on this big win for downtown Pittsburgh.

PNC is hardly the 'greenest bank in the world'. They got some good buildings, but that's about it! They don't even measure their company's carbon footprint or produce a good sustainability report. LEED buildings are cool, but until PNC starts looking at carbon risk when making loans and investments, they are at the bottom of the pile.

So tell me, which bank is "greener" than PNC? PNC has more green initiatives than just the Green Brach thing. I think there are a few websites out there that include this information, including this one.

The branch banks with drive thrus on raped hillsides, see Mt Nebo Road branch! This is pure and unadulterated GREENWASH. If it was so sad it is actually funny to see this bank at the bottom of a hillside topped by Big boxes.

I think this association was the best for all clients of this bank. They are gonna be the most benefit with this union.
