U.S. Bank Chooses Hara for Energy Management

The country’s fifth-largest commercial bank has selected Hara to provide it with comprehensive energy and resource management software.

Hara Environmental and Energy Management (EEM) software will help U.S. Bank identify energy reduction opportunities in its properties while tracking and measuring environmental initiatives, Hara said.

Hara EEM will create a central repository that accesses U.S. Bank’s energy and environmental data on more than 2,200 of its owned and operated sites across 25 states.

This will help the bank determine the best strategies for further reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, Hara said, and will provide data for internal and external reporting.

U.S. Bank formally introduced its Environmental Sustainability Policy in 2007. Since then, it has used LEED specifications for new branch construction and received LEED certification for nine branches, the bank said.

The company has also started energy efficiency initiatives including lighting retrofits, installation of multi-function print devices, server virtualization and consolidation, and PC monitor power management.

In December, U.S. Bank was designated an ENERGY STAR® Partner by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. It is also a founding member of PayItGreen, which educates employees and customers on ways to minimize paper use through electronic banking.

U.S. Bancorp, the parent company of U.S. Bank, had $308 billion in assets as of December 31, 2010. It operates 3,069 banking offices and 5,310 ATMs.
