Fifth Third Bank today initiated a recycling pilot project at 20 facilities in the Greater Cincinnati area, including 19 banking centers and a mid-size office building. The pilot builds upon recent expansions of recycling at Fifth Third’s Madisonville campus and downtown Cincinnati headquarters. The pilot project is helping the Bank prepare for a broader introduction of recycling to Fifth Third’s banking centers and offices in 2013.
The Bank’s desire to listen to employees and customers has driven our focus on environmental sustainability. Over the past several years, we heard their concerns and formulated a program to help the Bank become more environmentally sustainable.
Formally launched in 2011, our environmental sustainability program focused on increasing employee and partner engagement; measuring and managing performance; identifying, prioritizing and implementing change; and improving communication. The program supported and expanded our existing employee and corporate efforts.
