Employee commuting

CNB is committed to helping our employees commute to our offices in more sustainable ways. Like many companies, CNB is, allowing people to work from home or adopt a hybrid work model. That strategy is reducing emissions per employee. The impact of hybrid and remote workers has become a key part of measuring a company’s emissions.

Upcycled Plastics

Upcycled plastic debit cards

We are committing to helping bring alternative card materials forward to reduce the environmental footprint associated with first-use polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic – the traditional material in payment cards. Currently, all divisions of CNB offer upcycled plastic Instant Issue Debit Cards - aimed at reducing first-use plastic and diverting plastic waste that might otherwise enter a landfill. These payment cards are EMV® compliant and dual-interface capable. In 2024, we will be replacing our mailed debit cards with upcycled plastics as well.

Sustainable accounts

We believe that we can play an important role in helping consumers understand and act on their individual environmental impact. With that in mind, CNB offers solutions like our eBanking where customers can choose to receive their statements electronically and enroll in free unlimited ePay, an online service in which you can pay your bills electronically. Our goMobile app makes it possible for you to securely access your financial accounts on the go from your mobile device.. all while reducing paper usage and reducing carbon footprints.
